Re: Principles of pinning
I am sure you are much better than you think you are, you have been training consistently in multiple disciplines for a long time.
My BJJ club closed down last week but I will be moving to another Yamasaki school, either Woodbridge or Leesburg. I would love to meet up with you when you are here.
The reason I say that my rank exceeds my abilities is that I think the blue belt was more of a parting gift from my sensei than a true measure of my skills. But at the same time I respect him and his judgement, I have only been training BJJ for 1 year after 5 years absence from Judo.
I am thinking about trying to learn some internal skills too, do you know anyone who teaches or practices it around here?
