My second workout was at the Force Balance BJJ/ Paragon Burbank gym. Before class, I did some bounding over hurdles for over 5 sets and 3 sets on lateral jumps over the hurdles.
After that, I took the Beginner BJJ class, I did the warm ups, which consisted of grappling movements. Also, we worked on a takedown with the set up with a lapel grip break to arm drag to inside leg trip double leg takedown to knee slice to side control. With that said, the transition from this takedown, we worked on half guard passes with the knee slice to kasa katami to head and arm side control.
