Warm up consisted of 1 minute skipping 40 crunches, 30 squats, 20 push-ups 1 minute skipping 30 crunches, 20 squats, 10 push-ups 1 minute skipping 20 crunches, 10 squats, 5 push-ups 1 minute skipping Our chain this week was Double jab, cover L & R, cross, hook Lead snap kick, low inside leg kick, rear axe kick Clinch, double knee, spin opponent, double knee Change levels, outside leg trip to side control Once we ended in side control we looked at letting off a few body shots before gaining wrist control and finishing with the kimura or americana (upper or lower double wrist lock). From here we looked at the Forearm Slicer if the kimura failed. All the guys looked sharp in both stand-up and ground fighting. That being said I did have to have a word with the class as I'm noticing a few bad habits sneaking in. If you are drilling technique with your partner its your job to help them get it right. Any decent training partner WILL do this, they DO NOT resist with all their strength and try to escape a lock or choke, they TAP to let their training partner know they are going in the right direction. All this kind of behavior does is make you or your TP feel like they cant do it, that techniques don't work or they simply aren't good enough! If you can feel a choke is tight or the pressure building on a lock, TAP. There is no sense in holding on for as long as you can as you will burn yourself out and can also lead to serious injury. So be a good training partner and let people know when they are doing it right or wrong. It wont only enhance your partners training but yours as well!! Scott M
