Friday Night:MMA

Mostly focused on wrestling skills tonight. A lot of pummeling and takedowns against strikes. Especially focused on Double leg, Single leg and Ankle shoot.

Finished with ground and pound combined with pummeling conditioning drill.

I've been lazy with my clinch work of late and it showed tonight; Despite a significant size disadvantage I've generally been able to control my opponents without too much trouble. However, I was struggling tonight with a number of training partners and my head was particularly open to being caught in a double collar tie.

Saturday Afternoon: Submission Wrestling

Just took everyone through the SBGi clinch surfing drill progressing to free wrestling and then worked on the harness and rear naked choke.

Rolling went well - put everyone in the harness at one stage or another and pulled off some sweeps I've been working on lately. Actually managed to land a tight omaplata on someone from spider guard but was unable to finish; He was more than double my body weight and reasonably skilled so i wasn't shocked but I was still a little disappointed.
