Thanks! I train with the greatest guys in the world and I definitely get suggestions on one or two drills to work on my own. I guess specifically I want to tailor my metcon to things that will improve my game. It's good motivation. I'm still compiling my list but I promise to post it once I figure it all out.

SBG has some good videos as well. I also bought "tools of the trade" from green whale productions, and Marcelo, Camacho and others are on it. I must admit though I would love to get irvins sets. his transition approaches are as good as it gets IMO

I have to agree that was an excellent video. I am going to add that to my drills for sure. I saw a website that had one of the Shamrocks doing the same kind of drilling but I can't find the bookmark. After a short search here is a link with a picture of him working on the stability ball. http://www.jumpusa.com/mixedmartial.htm

Yael another hijack alert, Josh in another post you had mentioned focusing on relaxing and not muscling through the moves. I am working very hard on achieving this goal with some level of success. Do you have any specific drills or coaching cues that you use to help you flow?

BTW I love this thread,

Josh thanks for the detailed feedback. I have a partner I am going to try that drill with tonight. Tonight is no-gi for me.

First tip for rolling in pajama's watch for sneaky gi chokes.

Last night I was rolling with a blue belt and I was really working my flow. I was trying to play a defensive game and move with him. He was in my half guard and was working to get out and I was paying too much attention to working his hips and my legs. He reached up and kind of posted with his left hand by my neck and grabbed his own sleeve with his right hand and put a major choke on. I was amazed at the power this generated. The best description I have is that his sleeve became the pivot point and his right knuckles became the lever that crushed my throat. The other point is you will be amazed how much easier it is to hold on to someone with a gi on.

Thanks again.

Those chokes can really sneak up on you.. I don't wear the gi much, and I'm reminded sometimes that I really should.

Default Jump, Sprawl, Rollback

Hey there,

I put up a blog illustrating one of my favorite BJJ drills. You can see it here:

http://www.roydeanacademy.com/blog/s...jump_rollback/

I would also recommend low angle pushup, where you really work that range with your chest a few inches off of the floor. Not only will it strengthen your shoulders, but it will also prepare you to maintain a low elevation and have your partner carry your weight. I go over some subtle mechanics of this in the last PMenu. The pressure game is really about isometric strength, so anytime you can suspend yourself, whether that's holding a position on a pull up bar or hovering a few inches off the ground, you're prepping your body for grappling applications.

Hope this helps!

Roy Dean
