11 am Sun BJJ, May 10/15

Not gonna lie… 11 am is for selfish reasons… I get to do a good cardio and lift session in without being rushed lol… just got a summer membership at the local Thunder Bay Complex… Empty squat racks, benches, and other push pull equipment I will never use… however the rowing, little track above the swimming pool, swimming pool and day care make it convenient for our little family to get a small work out in together…

Again beautiful day out, 16c to 18c , sunny… great forecast of the size of our class with Myself, The Frenchman, Big Red, new white belt Travis and Professor Shat. The Frenchman had to take off earlier due to other commitments.

Got a quick clip of one of our standard warm up we do below from Sunday…

Quick clips of us working some takedown drills from this morning…

3:00 mins each, alternate once you reach the end of the mat…

2 mins each, alternating…

Technique: (10 mins on each)

  1. Wing Choke/Strangle
  2. Sliding Collar Choke/Strangle

wpid-img_529925733954226.jpeg

Note that both a choke or a strangle are effective… however one is non compliant as Coach Keith MacGillivray has brought up in the past.  Most chokes are applied to the trachea which will restrict airflow, can be painful, and most people will fight back. Strangles restrict blood flow to the brain by applying pressure to the carotid arteries in the neck, lets just say, you don’t get much fighting back except for the foam and your partner seeing stars, then out cold lol.

  2. New white belt Travis
