A fun session of underwater Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, that is part of our Progressive Bodysurfing - breath enhancement training (high CO2 tolerance, Hypoxic Threshold, Mammalian Dive Reflex and Heavy Lactic Acid levels etc). We play in different depths, each with different specificities, all equally demanding.
It's a lot of fun and it improves our preparation to better absorb wipeout situations. 30sec. underwater wrestling is hard. Much harder than having a dude rotating you in slow-motion in a pool. During this training, bodysurfers are constantly hit by knees, head, elbows, shoulders, etc.
It is difficult to leave the training without bruises and not possible to avoid the water coming into eyes, nose, ears, etc.
And this is just level one, or white belt level.😉 Do NOT try without a professional supervision.

Moments before getting a mini Waimea slab. Nice to get some mellow sets today after seeing the power of the North Shore earlier this week. Humbling, and sick! Definitely need to get out here again in the future. Waimea bay is officially my new favorite womp spot. #womp#torpedopeople#bodysurfing
