Like pullups on a stripper pole

on March 2, 2012

I was starting to think this week had forgotten all about Friday, sheesh.

Spring Break for the colleges starts next week. Naturally, everyone left this week, too.

Fundamentals Class, nogi

Only 3 of us and Andrew tonight. Straight in to drilling, something Andrew said he got either directly from 50/50 when he last trained up there or from a video of Ryan Hall’s. I can’t remember. Either way: an armdrag alternative from butterfly. Because, as he said, in nogi trying to armdrag someone is harder because of the spandex and the sweat — like trying to do pullups on a stripper pole. … This pronouncement was followed by a moment of stunned silence and then a fit of giggles as we all got the same mental image…

Drilled with Guillaume.

Open Mat

Rolled with Guillaume, Buddy, and Jamie. Starting to remember some of this jiu-jitsu stuff. (Though Andrew pointed out a place where my kimura grip was backwards during rolling later. Doh.) Some of the timing is slowly making its way back. Worked a lot on stripping grips. Worked in that idea from tonight. Hit that Emily Kwok pass at least once. My brain’s been thinking of some things; I’m not sure I ever managed to actually do any of the things I was thinking of, lol, but I think I was at least moving for stuff.
