A Saturday Surprise

What a great day for Jiu Jitsu.  We had a special visitor today.  Henry was a student at our old gym a while back. He is a great sparring partner for Aidan as well as a good friend

Today we worked on our hip escape.  We showed how our warm up hip escape movement works in our Jiu Jitsu game.  The first use of the hip escape is to escape from side control and recompose a guard position.  This will need some more work as a reverse hip escape movement/frame is required to complete the sequence.  The second option that we showed was to escape side control to a belly down position and progress to driving forward for a sweep.  Everyone got the concept of the sequence.  As always more drilling is the key to mastery.

We had a great rolling session at the end of class.  I was very impressed with everyone's performance. I really liked that everyone was looking for control before attempting an attack.

I found this cartoon which illustrates the power of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
