Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.

Today we polished up our chain drill we've been working on.  The deliberate and methodical approach to learning the positions has paid off for everyone.

We new have 2 submissions, one from mount and the other from back attack position, and will progress into 2 other of side control positions on Saturday.   

The situational rolling was a lot of fun.  The students all realised that they needed to keep their hip low in side control to stop the person on the bottom from moving to the guard position.  Over all today was a great training session and a lot of ground was covered.  Well done team!

A stellar day on the mats

What a fun class today.

We had Olivia's mum Yvonne join us as my assistant today.  It's fantastic to have the extra help and to have an adult to to help with demonstrations.

We had a new student join us today and give it a go. Talia jumped right in and was a fast learner.  Hopefully she'll be able to join us more often. 

Today we reviewed our mount escapes.  Everyone is doing a great job on refining their technique.  Our next step was to introduce ways to retain the mount.  Everyone learned how to make themselves heavy in mount firstly.  Next we worked on the grapevine.  The grapevine was a hit with the team.  We moved to the technical mount and how to follow your opponent if they try to roll away.  It was a good introduction and I look forward to more drilling with these techniques.
