Justin has been rolling one-armed recently because his arm is hurt. Last night during nogi, he didn’t have his black belt to grab on to, so he grabbed a white belt from the back and used that. Lots of joking last night about “the new white belt” and “c’mon, pass his guard! He’s only a white belt!”
Rolling to warm up. Gah. Everything was decent, but just not quite good enough. Can’t finish anything (not just submissions, but anything). Annoyed with self.
Drilling, another half-guard pass, mostly smashy. Somehow I ended up working with Marcos, who is taaaaaaaall, which made this a bit difficult for both of us — me, because the distances were so big and I had to span them, and him, because the distances were so small and he had to smash them. Heh. It was amusing, at least.
Few more rounds to finish up. Same as before: just not quite good enough. I started with some good things, I just couldn’t quite finish them good enough. Urgh.
