I’m pretty good with a bo-Staph…

So. ….That open mat I was talking about last time….After being away for over 2 months, and only getting on the mat for maybe 10 minutes…Well….I’ve got MRSA. 🙂

It’s my own fault.  They clean the mats religiously there, atleast the instructors do, I don’t know how well the guys that open it up for open mat clean it, but I can say with absolute certainty that it is mostly my fault, because I did not shower afterwards.

Now before you say, “OH gross, You didn’t shower?” Well no…I ALWAYS shower after I train, but I didn’t even train…I never even broke a sweat…I just laid on the mats and did some shrimps, square drills, and stretches…really relaxed, and sat around on the mats just talking.  Then I went home and didn’t even think to shower, as I had showered right before I went….And damn do I regret it… Sunday morning I noticed a nice pimple-bump on my love handle area…and by monday it was inflamed and red and horrible. I went to the doc and they drained it (gross and really painful), and gave me some Clindamycin to hopefully kill it off.

Not much of a blog. But I just wanted to point out that I have the worst luck ever.

  1. keep up the good work bro!
    Draculino is out of Texas isnt he ?

      Thanks for looking! Yes, Draculino is in the ClearLake area just south of Houston, we needed someone good out here for a long time, and we got better than someone good when we got Draculino. 🙂

  2. Hey man,

    I found your blog on Sherdog.

    Just wanted to say I enjoyed reading it and I’m looking forward to your future updates. I’d really like to hear more about what it’s like training for someone like Draculinho.

    I’m a bluebelt also (training in the northern parts of Sweden) and I only train with a blackbelt four or five times per year. So saying that I’m jealous at you for having the opportunity to train with a legend like that on a weekly basis would be a big understatement 😉

    Get well soon and good luck in the future!

      Thank you for reading Mattias. My blog has been a struggle. I have been unfocused and very lazy. I am hoping I can change my ways and rededicate myself to this thing I love.

      Beautiful Sweden! I would love to visit there someday. Hopefully I will get that chance.

      Draculino is an amazing instructor. He sees jiu jitsu in a way that most do not. His jiu jitsu is no longer something he has learned, his jiu jitsu is just a part of him, the same as he breathes. I hope to be like this one day.

      Thanks again!

  3. i just found your blog too. i have had staph 3 times since feb. it really sucks. what’s worse is that i haven’t trained since march, so i am not getting it from training, it’s just reoccuring from before. it’s really painful and it takes a lot out of you, which sucks, and makes it hard to get your steam going again when you are all healed up. hang in there bro.

    good luck.

      It really does suck. I never really thought I would have it like that either. Man it was painful, and the draining was oh man. The lady at the clinic almost make me cry. 🙂 Maybe there are some guys just prone to getting it, maybe we belong to that awesome club. But 3 times since February, oh man, you will have to start training in chain maille or a bubble boy suit! lol

      Happy training and thanks again for the link.
