Goals 2010

Purple belt
get up to a solid 154
compete in major tournaments
fine tune guard and passing

Monday, December 28, 2009


marcelo pass-
101 with deep underhook/head control. push off like runner's stance. shamu sprawl. watch trap and roll. lunge into it.

omoplata/tomo nage/collar drag/hip pocket omoplata/single leg/ankle pick/etc etc

2 on 1-
hip pocket omoplata/sit up 2 on 1 drag

general-sweep/attack rather than just sweep. cautious guard passing. awareness up. boxer mindstate- jab and feel out rather than ko punch all the time.

Rev dlr

Trouble shooting-

lift with hook and make them base out and then reset.

Dlr if they try to clear leg- foot in bicep. Don't let them control ankle
