I have learned a better way to teach ground fighting.

I usually teach stand up fighting in progression. Meaning that I usually teach a single leg takedown. Then I'll teach how to defend it (guillotine), then I teach how to defend the defense (guillotine).

Usually with ground fighting I do not teach progression, but I have started to. I have been teaching side control for the past few lessons and how to defend from it and how to offend from it. So both parties get a good lessons from it. Then at the end of class I let them go at it from that position and I see if they can put it all together.

Today Kyle did a very good job. When he would mess up I could hear him make sounds, "Ohhrrrr!" I knew why he was making the sounds and he would correct his mistake the second time while going live.

I believe this way is going to make his ground fighting game get even better, and even though we have been learning so fast, the basics can never be left out. So this is going to make everyones fighting improve.

I also taught Kyle some stand up fighting and different combos and how to enter and take advantage of different types of fighters. I think the stand up clicked in him today and he appreciates it more.

I did not go over any small circle or Aikido techniques which makes me feel bad. I keep ;eaving that out and I need to do at least one a day. It's just hard when there's so much to cover.

We did go over some throws though, which makes me feel better.

Is he ready for yellow belt? Yeah, he is. I was going to test him today, but he has missed a lot of class lately, so I am going to wait. Also Baylen did not show up, so I couldn't have him try and beat Baylen to make sure he was ready. I am hoping todays class taught him enough to get a submission out of Baylen, we shall see.
