Saturday training report - 5 more classes until the competition!

Good day everyone

Today we started putting some foot work into our tool boxes. We worked on a guard pass drill that puts us in the knee on belly position.  Everyone did well on their first attempt at this drill. We will continue working this technique as it will become part of the warm up in the future for the more advanced students. 

We learned how to pass the open guard of an opponent that is sitting up.  Everyone liked the shove to the forehead to put their opponent on their back so they could execute the pass to knee on the belly.

After we finished our stretching we worked on some balance exercises.  Balance is super important in any sport and in our daily lives.  We will continue to challenge our balance abilities in class. 

Special thanks to Aidan for cleaning the mats today.  We all love our super tidy dojo.
