Lazy Sunday BJJ March 2

Had a nice Sunday morning session. Coach is still in Tokyo so Ide-san, the judo and OJJ don, took the class. We went over lots of basics, which is always good, and some not so basic De La Riva stuff.

Basics:
Being in closed guard: Bad! If I’m dragged down to the floor from standing, always jam a knee in then work for the pass. If I’m stuck in guard, hands in armpits, stand up, then sit down with the knee jammed in.

De La Riva:
Practiced the DeLa Riva to helicopter, to back mount, and a sweep invented by someone from our dojo (I think) where you thread both your legs through theirs and then turn them. Need to practice all of them more.

I got choked by a strong whitebelt, which sucked. I’m still using the excuse that I’ve had three weeks off. I figure that excuse is good for another couple of training sessions. That guy is tough though. He broke my nose a year and a half ago, so I am a but gun shy around him. He flails a lot. He’s also an anti-gang cop, which is nice.

My buddy Sam came, who I introduced to BJJ. Usually with my friends who come to jiu jitsu, I have to continually prod and pester them to go. Sam has been more times than me though in this last month! His long limbs will be a great advantage once he learns how to use them properly.
