Brazilian Jui-Jitsu/Submission Wrestling:
We covered Butterfly Guard once again. We drilled the first sweep, which was to our left, while grabbing their arm. We worked Sweep #2 when someone is to base and we grab underhook and go the opposite direction. *Hips are key*
We drilled this a lot and I got semi-comfortable with it.
Then we worked on the defense when someone gets us in Butterfly Guard. We are to tri-pod post. (legs up, weight on their hips and tight in).
Once here we are to push hips (right down) putting weight on the opponent, then switch hips and pass their leg with hand. Make sure we pass the bguard and place that knee right in there. I had a problem bouncing. I need to work on keeping my weight on them the entire time.
We also worked on the defense of the sweep. When someone sweeps us, we tri-pod again putting our weight on their shoulder and at the same time we switch our hips and bring our knee up to their head. Then we slip our other knee up near their head, and pass into mount. Very nice defense to the sweep here. I want to work on this over and over and over.
We worked on cardio today.
4 rounds of 2 minutes
Then we did drill sparring. It was again, fun as always.
