In General Teacing how to spar Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #74 New 01-02-2006 02:20 PM
It is hard for me to teach how to spar. I have progessed to the point where going back makes me feel vulnerable.

Todays class I concentrated an hour to sparring. I taught Baylen how to close the distance and to faint, as well as fake. I taught him what moves to do to create confusion in the other persons brain.

We started to spar and he got too close and I took him down. It was habit, and I could not stop myself. I felt so vulnerable when he was close that I took him down. I should not have, but I did.

I then went in to ground fighting and I covered guard, spider guard, and standing up. He did very well on all of it. I went over the same things I went over with Ryan in last class. If you want to look that up it's my last entry I believe.

Okay I am out of here.

Good job Baylen.
I will be testing him for Orange Belt soon. I will wait until after the certificates arrive. I also want the next class to be 100% Orange Belt techniques. I haven't worked much on them in the last few months, so I am going to have to spend some serious time developing this in Baylen. I know this means that he will have to wait about a month more, but there is no hurry is there Baylen? I didnt think so. hahah
