About Me...


Hi, I’m Liam Wandi and I write PartTimeGrappler because no one else will!

The resources available to those who want/can/afford to train full time seem endless. I am not a pro, and have no wish to be one! I hold a demanding full-time job that I enjoy, study for a university degree part-time and have a family, wife and a life full of other hobbies.

I also train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and No-Gi grappling and supplement my training with kettlebell, running and power-walking sessions, which has made me really good at getting the most out of my day.

I don’t believe in goals. I believe in happiness.

Liam Thank you. Your information is brilliant. It's very practical and simple yet so knowledgeable and tried and tested. A brilliant tip I picked up years ago was :-

"You can train hard ...and you can train long ...but you can't train hard and long"

And so your practical suggestions for me as a judo player are really a breathe of fresh air.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience Liam. Vince Elliott UK (email onesimus1@btinternet.com )

Thanks for the kind words Vince. I'm very glad you like the blog. I completely agree with you. On a conscious level, I understand that you can't train hard and long but you know what the human mind is like :)

I'm telling you as soon as I get an evening off I'm thinking "oh I bet I can squeeze in a session/family visit/work...etc.)” but it doesn't work like that because you are burning the candle at both ends.

Judo is hardcore which tells me you definitely get what I am saying! Cheers! /Liam

Hey Liam, cool blog! I stumbled across it on the cagewarriors forum of which I am fairly new to! So far I really enjoy what I've read on your blog mate, but I have a question for you? Do you get many emails and questions on various topics? I am new to bloggin and reading blogs but I recently started my own BJJ blog too. I have been inundated with emails and questions and am kind of in shock, I never realised just how badly we need more great BJJ blogs to share knowledge, experiences and skills! Anyway I look forward to checking in with you regularly.
Kind Regards
Felipe

Thanks Felipe very kind of you, especially since your blog is an awesome read! Regarding the questions and emails, it's a wonderful thing. I get emails from places as far as St. Lucia, the Philippines and Egypt!

I must say there is alot of good skill/lnowledge-sharing around on the net, especially with stuff on YouTube and what not but not enough experience sharing. That's why I love blogs like Meerkatsu, Georgette's, John Will...etc.

Cheers.
