Fundamentals Class, BJJ
Small class, mostly colored belts again. Short warmup. Then rounds of standing grip-fighting. With Brandon, Nick, and Ray.
Drilling was basic cross-collar choke from mount. And then a slight variation in case they’re hand-fighting a lot on the arm that’s coming around.
Drilled with Brandon.
Randomly, the tip of one of my little toes decided to hurt. I don’t recall that I did anything to it; it just got weird.
TR’s fight was this weekend. Apparently he destroyed the guy with knees first (TR’s a Muay Thai guy) and then finished him in the first round with a standing guillotine. He tried to convince everyone that a submission win means everyone won’t think he’s just a stand-up guy now, but they had to point out that he finished the submission while standing. Doh! 😛
Rolling to warmup. With Adam and then with Ed twice.
Drilling was elevator sweep. Drilled with Ed.
Most of my hurt places — elbow, shoulder, big toe — all seem to stop hurting when I get on the mat. But as soon as class is over, watch out! … Ow.
