Finally back into a gym. Between moving twice last year and insane vet bills for my dog, I was flat out broke for awhile. Not to mention unemployed for around 6 months. But I finally got back on my feet. Signed up at the Gracie Barra down the road and started training right away.
BJJ class today. Worked in some neat things. Practiced defending from standing when someone has your back. My back is pretty sore from this one. Opponent had a bear hug from behind trapping our arms. We had to scoot his arms up, protect out neck, kick our leg behind theirs and sweep them. We then moved on to moving from full guard to butterfly guard and a sweep from butterfly guard. Finished off with a basic gi choke from mount. Also worked on a sweep from full guard to full mount
All in all, it was an outstanding class. Very helpful people.
