Worked loop choke with Coach Tim.  Very low key practice.  Which makes the next posting all the more annoying.

Drills with Mike

Clock drill is coming along – key point of performance – point toes on the roll.  Helps the whole back shape.

With Coach Tim

1.  Cheating triangle

  • Cross collar grip with same side catspaw
  • shrimp back so both feet are on uke’s hips
  • Swing leg on opposite side of grips around so foot is on shoulder
    • Keep grips tight up against same side shin
    • Push back with opposite side foot
  • When they lean in:
    • rotate hips towards grip, shoot opposite side leg (the one w/ the foot on the shoulder) across neck – not straight back, but across neck
    • pull catspaw across chest
    • kick grip side lig straight forward, then bring knee back towards chest
  • At that point, you have them locked down
  • Make sure collar grip is high enough to pressure neck
  • Squeeze knees – they tap

Quick trapped in 1/2 guard choke

  • If you get caught in a knee cut, get collar grip under chin at the tag.  Lean weight across a la clock choke.  Quick and brutal.

Stripe test w/ Kun Kru Nak. 

Went well.  Felt good with all the techniques.  Best part was pulling a reverse de la riva sweep against Oscar in the last spar.

Jason, who routinely smokes me when we roll, got promoted to blue belt.

More review for stripe test.

Armbar escapes:

1.  Hitchhiker escape – thumb to outside, sweep free arm under and rotate onto belly.  Last ditch.

2.  Lion star escape – just like Kesting teaches it

  • Arm their working on goes to opposite bicep
  • Other arm swims inside their leg
  • Post up on one foot to keep from getting rolled
  • Pop trapped elbow out
  • Rotate around into side control

Works from the back, too – once you get the mata leone grip locked in, pendulum legs so you can work to one knee and execute the escape.
