I guess I got a little crazy last night. Today, my knee and my elbow were really bothering me. I basically took it really easy this evening. We started off the traditional class by doing a judo exercise where you stand in front of a wall and do judo step ins, like a set up for a throw. It was really good, we did 50 on each side. I feel like I should work on those more because one of my biggest problems on my throws is that I get too timid on the step in and I end up not getting the person over the hip.
Then I basically did 1 round of the technique that John had us doing tonight. We did an open guard pass where you grab the pant with both hands and a spin into kesa gatame. It sounds crazy but it was good. Then John had me working with a woman who normally does the Kickboxing class. It was interesting because it gave me the opportunity to get a feel for how to explain things to beginners.
The second class was supposed to be X camp but no one showed up. Since it was just the fighters there, and my brother (who doesn't fight or do jiujitsu but I'm trying to convince him otherwise), we ended up just rolling. Josh rolled with one of the black belts from Tae Kwon Do. Since my elbow is messed up John just showed us some arm bar stuff from guard. He told us if we wanted to start bringing our camera and recording the moves we could. So last night we recorded most of the stuff John showed us. We also showed Josh the flower sweep and then all of us just drilled the flower sweep and some arm bars.
Noe and I are going to start running a women's MMA type of class. I hope people start coming to it, I think it will be awesome. I have been trying to spread the word at my bar review classes. John is making some fliers so we are going to start posting those up everywhere. Even if we only get 4 or 5 women it will be so cool.
