Surprised on the attendance… homies wanted to train!!

Nathan, Morgo, newer Blue Belt Kyle from Halifax, Philippe, and Katrina were in attendance.

Long Weekend… almost cancelled the class for today… nope.

Lol came in anyway…

image

Warm-up was standard… running around, lunges, bear crawls, reverse/side/forward rolls, break falls, and shrimping…

image

The homies then drilled passes and a few takedowns…

We the finished off with the full harnessed positional drilling… clip below.

Everyone had an opportunity to train with everyone, with two recycling of partners… back took, then back taking, its a hard and tough drawn out drill. Either you submit or you escape. Secret is to focus on a solid technical defence… 2 mins a round.

Yeah, I went in earlier to work on some rowing… hopefully this will help in the long run.

NERDs….

Oh well… who can blame taking a break from BJJ in the summer…

Reviewed some leg locks and their defences.

Also had a great 15 min technical roll… tested out his neck as its currently mangled… injuries always set back training.

“Scotch and ankle locks” says Veal… hahahaha

Been having a lot of leg locks running through my mind lately… yep. Them legs.

Coach always stating. “You live and die by the leg lock game…”

Attack your opponents legs and you leave your legs open… so really, who hits it first and obviously having the technicalities is the biggest factor.

Clip of another roll session below…

Food for thought… I went attacking legs at open mat. Got knee bahhd amongst others. Notably though, it was with Thor. A 180 to 200 lbs Brown Belt beast… yep MMA, wrestling fury to boot and with technique.

Went to the Sushi Station with the wife after… oh and the monkey that keep me busy all day lol…
