Good BJJ training tonight at Grizzly Gym. Class started with some basic drilling. We practiced several lock flows.
Lock flow #1
I really took my time throughout the whole routine. During the double leg, I concentrated on keeping my head up and tight to avoid the guillotine choke. During the arm lock routines, I focused on keeping the arm trapped. Because of this, the techniques flowed much better.
Lock flow #5
I was helping a newbie who had never tried leg locks. It was good to explain aloud as I was performing the techniques because it forced me to keep everything nice and tight.
Lock flow #4
I really like this flow. I feel like several of the techniques play right in to my game. I worked on keeping angles during the kimura so I didn’t have to use as much muscle.
Several good matches. I started every match by getting in to it right away. I locked up, pulled guard and immediately worked for sweeps or submissions. It worked very well. I got several good sweeps (kimura sweep, old school, scissor sweep) and several submissions (rolling guillotine, arm bar, Russian scarecrow, banana split). I almost had an arm bar on Sean and then started to transition to a omoplata but the buzzer sounded. All in all it was a good night.
ONE THING TO TAKE AWAY
Practicing the techniques slowly and being meticulous is paying off.
