Well I didn't get that nap. Frustrating. I pretty much find my motivation to show up for class in my sheer stubborness. Whatever gets me there I guess, it's no coincidence that the highest points of my die are immediately proceeding training. I'll have to watch the fight night and TUF tomorrow. Excited to see what happens with Gomi vs. Florian!
BJJ warm up run, guard pass drills. Bridge and roll out of mount while your partner does a new(ish) sweep. From your guard grab their sleeve with same side hand, other hand grabs nearest knee, your head and torso moves to the side of the knee while driving that leg out, lifting their knee, and pulling the opposite sleeve, almost like an omoplata. Kajan was doing a similar thing in no gi with us recently, except that guy makes it look like a break dancing moving. Other technique was various half guard stuff, which I needed a review on. Flattening them out, walk trapped foot up to their but, shoulder pressure their head away while popping your hip into the opposite direction and baseball slide that leg free. He also pointed out that there's a quick ezekiel from here that's worth at least taking a shot at. Other half guard pass, you switch your hips to face their legs, elbow braced against their armpit and arm along body, basically drive their top knee for space and kick out. If they go for an underhook you can trap that arm by gripping your collar and then using the free hand to do a straight armlock or kimura. That should make sense when I read it again. Finally we did a sweep from half guard that I got the hang of pretty fast. From bottom of half guard shrimp in, head against their hip, get the top underhook while the other hand reaches between their legs and grabs the toes of the nearest foot. Feed the toes to the underhook hand, use your newly freed hand to slide back under your body to give you base, drive the sweep, keeping the grip on their toes so as to prevent them from getting back to guard. I like, but was having trouble putting it into live rolling, worth working on.
We drilled from the half guard position, then shark tanked a guy going to the pan ams in cali, then we drolled. Nothing too interesting happened in my rolls, lots of positions. Good class. I felt real exhausted again today, it's going to be an interesting next couple days. Go go gadget iron will.
