Flopping at the World Cup

Posted: June 27, 2010

First let me start off by saying that I like soccer, and that I have always enjoyed watching the World Cup. I think these guys are tremendous athletes, and I respect them very much. Having said that, I would now like to go on a tirade about the “flopping” that has gone on during these games.

You can’t look like a world-class athlete when you fall down every time you run up the field. It’s really annoying when they fall down and whine; don’t get the call, and then get up and resume play as if nothing happened. They should card you if you keep faking penalties and injuries or make you come off the field for 5 minutes and let your team play with a man down. I can’t believe these guys get away with this. Is it me, or are the women that play soccer much tougher than these guys.

Maybe they should give out the Josh Koschek award to the guy that does the best job faking. In case you don’t know who Koscheck is, he’s the guy in the UFC that fakes like he’s gotten kneed in the face when he hasn’t. He successfully pulled this off in 2 of his most recent fights, and will now be rewarded with a title shot against GSP. Just like some of these clowns in the World Cup who flop are rewarded with penalty kicks. What kind of message does this send to our kids. That we should be a crybaby to get what we want, or that we should blame someone else every time we make a mistake.


Side Control Lock Flow (Erik Paulson)

Posted: June 25, 2010

Many of you hear me speak often of Erik Paulson, and how knowledgeable he is. In the following video, he is demonstrating a series of techniques from side control.   For more information about Erik Paulson, please go to his website: erikpaulson.com.  The important thing to realize is that multiple submissions are small increments away from each other. I hope you enjoy it.
