Sorry for the lack of updates. Computer troubles should be over soon.

Saturday arvo: Submission Wrestling.

Head 2 Head clinch surfing drill
Head 2 Head clinch surfing drill with snap downs

Techniques:
Fireman's takedown
Fireman's takedown to single leg.

In the hole training: Fireman's takedown/single leg vs. free movement.

Knee ride
Knee ride and near side arm bar.

In the hole training: Knee ride vs. escape.

Free rolling

The class seemed to pick up the techniques well today, especially the fireman's takedown. Despite the fact the whole class hates doing it I can clearly see the head 2 head drill has improved their clinch work immeasurably.

Managed to bust my thumb by jamming it really hard into a blue belt from Melbourne's knee.

Monday evening: BJJ

Mostly just helped out with the class with focused on attacking the turtle position.

Rolled pretty well. I was primarily focusing on going straight to half guard off of a failed hooking sweep and then threatening the back before returning to the hooking sweep on the other side. Unfortunately for what I was working on I just kept getting my opponents' backs; I would much rather have gotten either sweep attempt.
