MY OBSESSION, WILL BECOME YOUR ADDICTION!!!
Got to LEMMA around 5:45 pm… got some rolling in. First big Willy, then with the Pirate.
LONG ASS ROUNDS lol
Great stuff tough long sessions with some bigger boys lol.
Thor ran the class with a warm-up that consisted of doubles and sprawling…
Back and forth back and forth for like 15 minutes lol or was it 20?? wait was it 10?
I partnered with the beast St Amand.
My foot was still mangled lol… wish we had the option to pull guard. Hah!!
Thor had us review the elbow push escape to counter the double under-pass, as well as from a transition while your opponent in top side control moves the outside anchor arm to across the body for better positioning. Marcelo Garcia used this all the time. Excellent escape when you can time this well. Very powerful once your arm locks out… below is a nice clip for further review with Marcelo demonstrating this from side control.
Rolling: (3 mins, 30 sec break)
- St Amand
- Big Steve
Thank god for the open mat prior… 3 min rounds just ain’t enough some times lol… especially if your trying to execute the technique we reviewed in class and the white belts are trying to eat you alive for dinner and with other agendas on their mind lol…
I did manage to hit the gym this morning to get some cardio in… rowing for about 40 mins… results below.
Made a visit to LEMMA this morning as well…
NICE TO SEE MY ADDICTION BECOMING OTHERS OBSESSION… ahahhaha
Bunch of guys working on a knee/shin guard sweep, some rolling and drilling.
We went to the Thai Kitchen afterwards… fun stuff!!!
My Gi was soaked after the class, washed after every use BTW…
Time to rotate and use one of my other beloved GI’s from my little collection.
