In General Kyle Madsen Yellow Belt Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Great class today. I did not tell Kyle a thing, but after regular class he was really worn out and then began his testing.

I tested him for yellow belt after he was worn out and exhausted from a 15 minute live grappling spell with Baylen. It was perfect.

He needed to work on his hook kicks, and the rest is coming together nicely. He has come a long way from day one.

Regular class included basics, first ten throws, combos 1-4, one and two step sparring, and ground fighting. I covered three ways of passing the guard, the defense to someone passing the guard, and a few submissions that follow passing the guard.. Then I had them go live from certain positions. I was impressed with Kyles heart. He doesnt give up. Even if he has no clue of what he's doing, he wings it and tries. He puts a full effort and that's what I like to see. Of course Baylen did well, but I just can't help routing for the under dog to get lucky. When Baylen started I used to show him moves to beat Kyle, and now I am going to have to show Kyle moves to beat Baylen.

It's fun to me to see the competitive edge in all of my students.
