New students on the mats

Our first class was a lot of fun this morning.  We had 4 new students come for a trial and it was great to see them join right in and work with the team.  The class consisted of working the first mount escape.  We had Aidan and Olivia helping everyone with the escape.  They both did an excellent job working with everyone.  Well done to you both. 

Our second class was equally as fun.  We worked our 3 side control chain to north south position,  then we progressed to going from north south to the opposite side to side control.  We will be working this more in the coming weeks.  Making intelligent movements to maintain top position is our goal.

Our rolling session was spectacular.  Everyone was actively using what they have learnt over the previous weeks.  Olivia was on fire.  She was submitting everyone she rolled with.  Olivia is a great example of a smaller person using Jiu Jitsu to dominate a larger stronger opponent.  Great work and awesome attitude and sportsmanship Olivia.  Nothing makes me happier than the girls giving the boys a hard time when rolling.

Overall it was great to see all the kids back that have been sick.  The viruses have been getting everyone so please wash your hands often to minimize spreading the bug.
