In General I was beat Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Yes, this morning was a great class. Kyle Madsen beat me with a heel hook.

Now do not get me wrong. I did beat him about 10,000 times before he beat me, but he got me none the less.

What does this mean? This means I have to start trying harder with Kyle. Usually I can reverse out of everything they put me in, but not this time. This means he is getting good skill. This means I actually have to step up my game and not let him get close to those moves.

Now remember, as an instructor for someone lower than you, you have to give them things, you have to feed them submissions, you can't reverse and fight out of all of them or they will not learn. You slowly try more and more and then one day, they actually do beat you, and you must give less and less until you are going full out defense/offense.

Now since I have been doing this forever, I know I could beat Kyle in a matter of 2 seconds. Does this mean I should do this every time? No, he won't learn anything. I have to act like I am on his level or just a bit above.

So beware Kyle, because now I must step it up a little, and you too must step it up in order to beat me.

Take care Kyle, and great job in class today.
