Hopefully things will settle down after next week. I have a Reilly Bodycomb seminar review coming up soon that I will share. In the meantime here is a #TBT grappling match from back in 2011 when I was a blue belt. It's always cool to go back and watch old matches to see how much you've progressed and of course to evaluate things to work on. I probably played the most passive game ever at this particular tournament which was a first for me. Things that I learned most in this match:
1. Passing the guard...I wasn't very good at it then.
2. Importance of breaking grips.
3. Properly defending/escaping the omoplata rather than rolling and losing reversal points.
4. Don't wear old, lightweight gi's that stretch. The sleeves on this Koral gi were awful and was retired shortly after.
