I did a test test today just to see if he knew the techniques. I had him do them all and he was just fine. I did not have him show me the kicks, only because he knows them and I know he knows them.
I asked him to class on Sunday and he and Kyle will be there. I will test Ryan then and he has no clue, or at least I think he has no clue.
His groundwork is improving but he still seems to give up as soon as he doesn't know what to do. What he needs to do is not give up, and get out of the positions.
A few more months and they will be starting their submission Jujitsu which is going to show them all that the ground is the place that is easiest to score a win.
My back was killing me today and it was hard for me to demonstrate anything, but I made due. Although it hurt like a mother, I made due.
I went to the doctor yesterday and he said I sprained ligaments, tendons, and disks in my back. I was a little angry because I did it at work. I train all the time and this little POS case of product made me hurt more than all the hours of Ukemi Waza. grrrr
So I will probably not go to MT or BJJ tonight. I have another appt at 4:45pm tonight for the back. It sucks, but I have to do it.
Anyways, I am out of here. Good luck to you Ryan. I wish you the best on Sunday.
