The lessons for today was about passes for the open guard. We worked on the C1, C2, NoGi Toreando pass, and the Leg Twist Stack Pass. I got a lot of reps for each drill. I did pretty well on all of the passes and I stayed healthy after training. My leg is definitely getting better and I'm able to move a lot without pain to the knee. After that, I stretched out for 30 minutes today at home while I was studying.
For the past two years, I've lost via Submission. My first match two years ago, I was up on advantage points and I thought I was down, so I tried some desperate moves, got caught, and tapped out. Last year, I pulled guard, got passed, and tapped out again.
This year, I plan on mixing it up for training and working mostly on the add-ons to my game. I plan on pushing all the combos out and working more towards different positions to secure the submissions, but first, I have working on passing and sweeps as top priorities for this year's training. Today, I got to work on that a lot during the rolls.
I'm committed to twice a week on the mats and twice a week on the weight room. Anything more than that during the week is a bonus. While taking care of my son at home, I'll have to be creative on getting some training in, like doing bear crawls while chasing my son or doing crunches while my son is occupied watching his show.
