Todays class went well.

We started with the basics. Footwork, disengagements, etc.

We moved on to review Shiho Nage from the time before, then moved on to the throws.

We did the first five throws; tenchi nage, Osoto Gari, Ogoshi Nage, Ippon Seoi Nage, and Yoko Shiho Nagare.

Then we went over some blocking technique. I basically had them check kicks, and block punches. One person did the striking and the other did the blocking. This gives them a chance to try to hit their opponent, but allows the person blocking to concentrate on blocking and checking. They both did well.

We then covered ground fighting. I went over the scarf hold and how to get into the position safely. Once they got that we moved into, how to get a submission (arm bar). Then after showing the arm bar I displayed what things could go wrong, and showed them how to capitalize on how to reverse the reversals.

After that I had them go at it live. They both did very well. Baylen still seems to overpower Ryan. At the end I decided to get in there so Baylen could have some competition.

I didnt try with Baylen, but I feel like I will soon be trying because he is getting a lot better. He squirms when he needs to and stays away from disaster, which makes me have to work a little bit to beat him now.

I actually had to get out of certain positions quickly and with force because he was going to get me.

I know it's only a matter of time that he will beat me, and that's fine. When he does start beating me I am going to have to up my game quite a bit. It will be great.

We ended up going at it for ten minutes and he gave up from exhaustion. Someday he will last for 30 minutes.

Until next time guys.
