Got to LEMMA around 6pm… got a couple rounds in for open mat with Juneau… he’s still tough as a bug, strong and starting move more efficiently. Great job buddy!
Scotty too hotty, ran the warm up with the standard laps, forward/backwards break fall’s to a technical stand, forward/backward shrimps, the forward/backward butt scoots.
First, Coach got us to drill some self-defense scenarios with someone attacking us while fallen on the ground and your attacker comes in with a downward over hook. All you do is guard your face with your forearms, set up knee shield with one foot on the hip, shrimp/scoot backwards, square up, then an up kick to the face. Then your attacker throws another over hook from the opposite side, again moving forward with a punch, only for you to drill his again once across the mat.
Second, Coach got us to work a scenario where we were on the ground and your attacker comes in for a soccer kick to your face. Block with your elbow or forearm to protect your face. Grab their heel, you hip inward, up kick and heel kick to the groin area then a hook/tri-pod sweep, heel kick to the groin, leg drag, and what ever other approach to subdue your attacker.
Great reference from Stephan Kesting on a Street Defense proximity and Panic…

Third, Coach got us to work on our close guard. He got us to have our partner to be inside our close guard. He had them using of hand on hips or the inside arm, while the bottom person maintained the closed guard to get everyone use to standing and being able to maintain closed guard. From there he got everyone to work on a variation of a waiter sweep, mount then submission.
Fourth, Coach got us to play king of the mat, where the first person to sweep, submit, pass, stays OTM. Love this game, always fun and challenge… great drill for the bottom guy to work their sweeps that were reviewed during class. Had a few tough rounds with some bigger boys… hilarious lol.
Live Rolling… I’ll be honest I believe we only completed a few rounds after the king of the mat session. I rolled with Scotty too hotty then Big Red, or was it Juneau?
