Training with GSP

Derek NoppeCorrespondent IDecember 18, 2007

IconWell readers and fellow writers: get ready to be very jealous of me. 

Georges "Rush" St. Pierre will be in Ottawa, hosting two MMA seminars in early January.

As some of you may or may not know, I am a retired fighter who has been thinking of returning to the ring for some time now.

I can not tell you about the excitement level that I am feeling right now.  For four hours, I will get to train with one of the best MMA fighters in the world. 

Two hours of striking and two hours of grappling.  I do teach my own style of mixed martial art, CanKiDo, and I am a firm believer that you can always learn more.  So I am going in with an open mind, and hope to come away with some new exercises, drills, or some really cool submissions. 

So right now I am going to be working my endurance to the best of my abilities.  Last thing I want to do is to be totally gassed and unable to train at a high level.

Stay tuned to see how things go—until then keep your hands up and your chin down.
