Tuesday Training Report

Today we worked on our two bear hug escapes.  Number two needs a bit more work, but it's coming together.  The next step will be to add some real world resistance to test our students technique.

The senior students were taught a shoulder lock which works well to control an opponent.  One more class with this technique and we are ready to go situational.

Saturday training report

Today was more work in the guard position.  We worked on maintaining posture when your opponent tries to break you down.  Next we worked on the knee shield.  Everyone can now see the madness of our warm up directly relates to how we fight.  A great job was done by all.

Big thanks to the students that stayed after class to help clean up.  Well done!

Tuesday training report

Hello everyone. Today was a fun one. We had a new student come for a try. She did well in her first class.

I was surprised and impressed to see Aidan who is one of our youngest students tie his belt without any help.  Our older students may need to get some lessons from Aidan.  ;)  Well done Aidan. 

We worked on the arm drag today as a refresher.  Everyone put the pieces back together so by the end we had some good looking arm drags taking place.

We moved on to working mount escapes.  We had some good king/queen of the mat action.  Today we increased the resistance.  Everyone is getting to feel the pressure and use their techniques quickly to escape.

Someone took Burt's gi and belt and we had a pair of shoes left behind.

Saturday rolling session and surprise.

What a fun Saturday.  We worked on 2 take downs from the knees to get the rolling started. Both classes did very well in our rolls at the end of the session.  I love watching our students use the techniques they have learnt rolling and the look on their faces when everything works.

Our surprise today was for Oscar.  Oscar has been training with me for a long time.  He's come a long why with his technique and focus in class.  I love seeing Oscar's Jiu Jitsu.  He's got one of the best back attacks and seat belt grip in the class.  Well done Oscar!

Saturday fun at the dojo

Don't mess with this guy!
The weather was so nice in the dojo this morning.  It felt so good to break a sweat during the warm up. 

Our junior students worked on grip breaking techniques today.  We covered 3 ways to break the the lapel grip.  Once everyone had a good grasp of the techniques we went situational to make it more real.  Everyone had a great time moving and breaking with their training partner.  Way to go junior team.

Our senior team class learned 2 take downs from the knees to begin their rolling.  We had done a lot of work previously on our chain of movements.  Today the reward for everyone working so hard on the chain drills was an intense rolling session.  It was rewarding to me to see the team use what they have learnt whilst rolling.  Miller was on fire today.  He has progressed quickly and was moving extremely well in his matches.  Great work you guys and girls.

What a pair!
I want to give a special shout out to Eric and Olivia.  Olivia has been training with me and Aidan since she was four years old.

Her younger brother Eric has joined our junior class and is enjoying every minute.  It's great to have a family that all train BJJ!

Tuesday's chain drill session

What a great class.  everyone was thrilled to work on the back attack positions and extremely happy to work on their first lapel choke submission.

Ok so here is how the chain drill works.  The student starting on top in side control progresses to knee on the belly.  After a mental 3 count they slide into mount.  The mounted student starts to roll and the top student changes to technical mount then secures seat belt control.  Now the student on top rolls their opponent and sets their hooks.  Once control is established it's time for the lapel submission.

Watching everyone's ability and confidence in working through this positions is very rewarding for me.  The hard work of drill each position over the last several weeks has paid off and demonstrates everyone's ability to adapt to new concepts in Jiu Jitsu.   It won't be long before we start learning the second chain drill.  It will definitely be a hit with the team.

Thanks again to all the parents that help out and thanks for the support we get from all the parents.  We couldn't do it without you.
