Busted my thumb during sparing at karate. I fractured the middle and tore a ligament running down the side of my thumb. Happy day’s! I’m out for 3-4.
Jiu Jitsu with my instructor…
Apparently I have shit stand-up. Stand up and fight me, we’ll see. I do realize it was constructive criticism, but you don’t go paying out the martial art that I have spent so many years perfecting. I do need to start Muai Tai soon, but for now I can defiantly handle myself on the feet… Don’t get me started on Karate! It’s terrible.

On a Sidenote
I’m slowly realizing that the world, mainly Geelong is a shit place. The fight scene is supposed to be the meanest part of town but in actual fact it is the most friendly. The people here are misguided and ruin their own and other peoples lives. Thankfully I have received discipline from my sport and still maintain a clear head.
Hit it hard!
Started Jiu Jitsu last week, probably the most fun whilst learning I’ve had in a long time. Unfortunately I hit it hard, while participating in the adults class I bruised my tailbone (coxic bone) and have been unable to train and move 100%.
Training Partner: I don't think I was doing it right...
Me: No, trust me it fucking hurt. I just never give up.
Back to 100%
I’m feeling great, my operation went well. Although minor, any operation can go wrong. I’m in a good mood, I’m fresh and I’m ready to hit the gym again. As long as I pace myself and don’t take too many to the jaw, I’ll be fine. I’m back baby, look out!
Training is over...
Training takes a break over the two week school holidays. I wish it didn’t because without an outlet I’ll struggle to remain sane.
It isn’t just me against him, it’s me against myself– Dan Stittgen
I can’t be everybody’s hero…
If I’m going to fuck up my life, does it really matter which way I do it?
I haven’t fought in two weeks now, it’s doing my head in. This cold is slowly killing me.
Just roll with the punches...
I learned today that I am not in control, very far from it. I don’t know what it is, I feel that if I try hard enough to make things good they will be. Sadly that’s not true. Today the world kicked me in the face and showed me that I should stop stressing about the things that are out of my control and roll with the punches… This is a mindset I desperately need to get my head...

Chores and Parents, do not mix
Me: So, who's taking me to training tonight?
Mum: You aren't training tonight...
Me: Why not!?
Mum: You forgot to do the washing!
Depression is a BITCH!!
I am a naturally angry and depressed person. It may be my situation, it may be my experiences. But all I know is that when I miss training I turn into a grumpy jerk that no one wants to associate with. My friends see me as the happiest guy on the planet and most of the time that’s how I see myself too. But there are moments where I sink into darkness and think: the ability to ponder is quite...

I am getting better…
I am drawn to fighting like a moth to a flame– Me
Karate, one of the most common form of martial art. An indigenous Japanese striking art, utilizing punching, kicking, knees, elbows and open hand techniques. As a scrawny, pale farmer boy, my parents decided to enroll me in a Karate school to learn self defense. That was roughly twelve years ago now. I have earned my junior black belt in this time and have won five club tournaments. I have entered...
