Today's Jiu Jitsu training was during lunch time at Rodrigo Freitas BJJ. I got to work on several side control transitions, recovery, and finish to an arm bar. I got to live drill from both the top and bottom position for 4 rounds and then I got to spar for 1 round. Training went okay, but my timing was off, since it's my first day of Jiu Jitsu training for the week.
I was looking at the list of competitors for JJWL American Open, but I didn't see anyone for my age division and weight class, so I'll skip and weight until the IBJJF Masters Worlds for next month. Hopefully, my work schedule goes well, so I can go. My goal is to get 3 days of Jiu Jitsu training per week before the tournament.
Tonight's training was short, since I was taking care of the kids tonight. I was able to pop out of the hole with some explosion on the pause squats, even though it was heavy. The warm ups took a while to sink in, since I was so tight, but once the weights got heavy, I was able to sink in on the hole and get depth.
