Even with the repeated emails that I had to keep sending out because of the technical glitch on my video server and me flirting with the idea of running into traffic because it wasn’t working, we got it all squared away and everything worked out fine.
Thanks for your blog comments you’ve posted after watching the videos and if you haven’t had a chance to see, you can watch it here at http://dwarfurl.com/a57ab
Now, about today’s new video…
This video is the second one from my “10 Mat Attitudes” DVD that discusses what I call Mat Mindset #8 – Intimidation Mode.
For some of you, it might seem unnecessary because you think your school doesn’t have any intimidation going on and I’m creating a
problem out of nothing.
Let me assure you if you plan on training to be a black belt, you WILL encounter training partners that will try to intimidate you before, during, and after matches.
And there will be occasions where telling the instructor that you don’t want to train with a particular student may not be an option.
Bottom line: sometimes, you’re going to have to be able to handle it on the mat yourself!
And if you don’t have the right mindset to take it, you won’t be able to dish it out as needed.
Check it out for yourself and try it in class when needed.
Dedicated to improving your mat experience!

P.S. If you’re on my Facebook Fan Page (http://dwarfurl.com/1b908) or follow me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/thewisegrappler), you’ve already heard that I’m supposed to be an intellectual dope this week based on my biorhythm chart and this confirms it. I forgot to send two components of my “10 Common Mistakes and Mat Attitudes” DVD Training Resource to the distribution company that should’ve gone out last week. And as much as I’d like to blame it on someone, I can’t because my biorhythm said I was going to be an idiot this week.
So, the “10 Common Mistakes and Mat Attitudes” DVD Training Resource will be released next Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 2pm EST at a great discount. Until then, enjoy the videos, try them in class, and make sure to leave a comment on the blogs.
