Along for the ride

on October 16, 2013

My brain and body seem to be doing fine without any input from me. So long as I give them a nudge every once in a while to remind them of what we’re doing here, they seem to be doing this “grappling” thing just fine. Last night, I had several songs running through my head. I was too busy bebopping along to think too much, but there were passes and sweeps and escapes and submissions — it seemed like I would suddenly become aware of my surroundings, and here I’m extending someone’s arm. Or, I do this and this and — wait, go back, there’s a submission right… there. Or, oh, he’s choking me, I should just… this and… yeah, that’ll do. I have no idea what’s going on here, but I like it.

Rolling to warm up. Drilling was a re-omoplata, if they try to bowling-ball escape. Rolling at the end, too.

Afterward, Janet and Tyler were talking, and he was showing her something. It wasn’t quite what I’d had an issue with earlier in the night, but suddenly I knew the answers to the earlier issue: on those passes, need to commit weight to pinning their leg. Also, need to pin below the knee, not above. This is another thing — someone will do something or show something, and my brain makes a connection somewhere else.
