Nice class from grasshopper brown belt Matthew Trudeau visiting from BC and showing us some spider guard trickery, with a nice transition into x guard, a nice sweep, and then a cool calf slicer from bottom x.

Matt had us start with a warm-up with some shrimping, hip switch stuff to work the core, some forward and backward rolls, then backward extensions.

Quick clip below…

Rolling: (5 min Rounds, 1 min Break)

  1. Matt Trudeau (Flow, no submissions)

Received a message from an old friend in Kitchener asking about BJJ clubs in Kitchener… He told me that he loves the videos I post and he wants to give it a try. If my blogging and BJJ gibberish can inspire a few people to give it a try. BJJ speaks for its self… you will get addicted

Osss,

Had to bring Chucky Sunday morning to his Vet to get his rabies shot and check up… A++ she says especially with what happened to his back a few years ago.

image

Didn’t get to the gym until 10:15 am. I only had time to roll out my back muscles.

Decent attendance, with Justin, Kyle, Nathan, Katrina, and even Emma. Especially for this morning… beach weather lol. Was it ever starting to get hot out side. The Gym was super hot.

Warm-up was with the standard 15 mins of running around, lunges, bear crawls, rolling, shrimping, butt scooting etc… quick clip below.

We also got a bunch of 2 mins drilling in with arm-bars, hip-bump sweeps, kimuras, Marcelotines, and triangles all from closed guard. Additionally, I got the guys to rep string attacks, with passing the butterfly guard with the toreando pass to knee on belly the your opponent counters with a turtle and you take the back to work your favorite submission. I then got them to work a knee slice-pass, to work an under then arm-bar. Quick clip below…

Got Nathan to show a few submissions from side control. Kesa Gatami.
image

The straight arm-lock with the top leg, then the key lock with the bottom leg. and head control. Quick clip below for further reference.

Old school… I guess. Effective but not used much. I may start using these submissions more often.

image

We then worked on the back-take positional sparring… love these. Everyone was going hard. Submission and reset. Escape and reset. 3 min rounds.

image

PLEASE NO MORE F’n Finger locks, not rocket science… just don’t do them.
