I finally signed up for jiujitsu classes again at Brazil Academy. I am really going to enjoy taking classes up there.
I went to class on Thursday night and it was awesome. We did one throw, I thought it was called Morote Seoinage but the instructor said that it was called something else because of the starting grip. The way I had initially learned this throw a little while back was by grabbing the collar straight across but this was a cross collar grip. I'm not very knowledgeable about judo so I'm not really sure. Anyway, this type of throw is one of the ones I really like and I want to get good at it.
The second thing we did was a De La Riva guard sweep. I know absolutely nothing about De La Riva guard so it will be awesome to start to expand my knowledge base of the various guards. I have been trying to work on X-guard but so far I haven't had much success with it.
We finished off class with a fun tournament style game. We separated into teams and there were four of us in each bracket. We just did 3 min rounds because of the number of people there. I ended up rolling with two white belt guys. The first guy was really strong and had pretty good technique and the second was more squirly than the first so we were moving a lot more.
Bottom Line - I'm really glad I signed back up for jiujitsu classes. I'm only going two days a week but I think it will make a big difference.
