Today was a three hour class. We went over the following:
Takedowns: Ankle Shoot
Shoulder Throw
Hip Throw
Monkey Flip

Kote Gaeshi

Guillotine escape

Arm Bar
Key Lock
Basic Choke

Tuck, Slap and roll
Bridge over
Fish Out
Fish and Sweep

After that we worked on takedowns in "live" action
Then we went "live" from knees

Ryan did very well. There were some things I think he could have improved on, but no one's perfect. When John got his back he did not post his hand for defense on his throat. When he got the half guard he forgot to push his head to Johns stomach. Other than that he did great.
He's improved so much over six months. He mentioned something about staying a yellow belt. Sorry Ryan, I choose when you get promoted. I don't give belts to people that don't deserve it. I give belts to people that earn and deserve it. I will promote you when you're ready to be promoted. Dont forget that when you get Orange, you test for yellow and orange. When you get green you test for yellow, orange, and green. We never stop training on the basics. By the time you get to Black, you will have nearly perfected the basics. I also teach the advanced techniques earlier so that you will perfect those by the time youre a black belt too. HEHEHE Just trust me.

John showed us some things that I liked. He has a great wrestling skill that makes him a good ground fighter.
