Class was amazing today. We did our normal warm ups and then throws. We spent a little time on throws, but not too much.

Then I went to an elbow combo. Right elbow, left elbow, and then a mt knee.

Afterward we worked on Randori using the hip throw (koshi nage/Ogoshi Nage). It was neat to see them trying to do this throw over and over. I switched it to Ippon Seoi Nage (Shoulder Throw) and then let them continue. I could tell they were all tired so I let them take a short water break, then we started on groundfighting.

We worked butterfly guard, getting up, sweep 1, sweep 2, and half guard sweep 1, and getting to the back. Then I covered how to defend against the butterfly guard. We went live from that position switching partners each time. It was neat to see.

Then at the end we went live to submission. I went with Kyle because I knew he had to leave. I wanted to make sure he had to work at it. He did and I didn't give him anything. I ended up submitting him in arm bar fashion. I remembered his little submission last time, so I tried a little harder this time than last.

Then I Kyle and Baylen go at it a few times. Ryan seemed to try harder than ever so I knew it was time for him to get promoted.

After class I tested Ryan with Baylens help. We covered the first five throws over and over, then getting out of mount and guard over and over. Ryan had to use the restroom to throw up, and then we continued. We did kicks, escapes, and I went over blocks and parries with him. Since day 1 I have concentrated on ground and wrist techniques because this is where he lacks. So he wasnt sure which punches and blocks I wanted, but he knows them. I wasnt really worried about them with Ryan.

He displayed very good technique and heart today, something I will remember for a time to come.

Great job Ryan
