Todays class was very informative. I do not think I will have the ability to remember everything, but I will try to remember as much as possible. BJJ ran into Muay Thai and actually went all the way until 9:00pm. We did BJJ from 6:30-9:00pm. Do you know how much infor we covered? A ton. It was great.
We worked spider guard. Spider Guard is where you control the persons wrists and you use your feet on their hips. We first forked on getting from closed guard, to spider, and then to butterfly. Just to get a feel of what was going on and how we could transition. Now since we went from closed guard to spider Derek said it would be good to learn a few moves from this position.
First sweep was to trap with our left arm, place our left foot on their knee, and to place our right foot in hook position. Then turn to the left in order to do the sweep. This one was fairly easy.
Now next sweep was if that one fails, for whatever reason we place our left leg in their biscept and push 90'while spinningto grab their leg with our right arm. We have to make sure we are close together with our knees, and then we make sure our right knee is on their belt line. Then we push them back.
We learned another whizzer move. We get overhook in spider or butterfly, This whizzer we are going to grab our right thigh and then drive our hips into them and drive the whizzer down.
We worked butterfly guard and the same sweeps. Then he taught us the passes for butterfly guard and spider guard. They are the same except with spider we have to push their leg underneath our thigh so we can do the same type of passes. Pass one.= Drive our hips left, then right and pass leg. Pass 2= Get high and drive our left knee to the right while driving hips. Put in underhooks on both arms and drive them flat. Then bring knee high up, and into mount with other knee.
from Spider Guard we also worked triangle. We also worked Kimura if the triangle fails, and then we also worked arm bar in the same position. Arm bar was done like triangle, but we moved the arm on the opposite side of the body figure four style.
We worked on arm drag again and we did some drills to get better tat this. We had the sweep from last time, and we covered that today again, but differently. He showed us how to get the persons back right away, or to wait and get it later.
This is all I remember for now. If I think of any more, which I know there was, I will come back and type it out. Darnt!!!!
