Two nights of staying up way too late made this morning pretty much evil.
Four of us plus Andrew this morning, which is big for a morning class recently. Warmup, and Andrew didn’t like us for some reason and had lots of evil things worked in. Then rolling to warm up, which I think most people do not understand. It does not mean that you clamp and hold for a whole round just so you can say you didn’t get swept or passed. Srsly. (Hint: warmup round means “move.” Also means “relax.”) Rounds went white, blue, white. On the last, since it was 2 sets of blue vs. white, we blues had to start/restart in a disadvantageous position; my partner chose to start in side control every time.
Then Andrew showed us some tips for passing half guard involving always threatening a submission (guillotine, far-side armbar); then when they have to react to that, you can pass. Instead of drilling, went to specific sparring from half guard. Top had to pass; bottom, sweep or submit. Then switched top & bottom and repeat. Switched partners once.
A short drill on recovering the underhook for both the top and bottom player, involving cross-facing, which turned out to be fairly evil when done correctly. Then one last full sparring round.
