Yesterday's lunch Jiu Jitsu training was at the Rodrigo Freitas BJJ gym in Hawthorne, CA. We worked on side control recovery to full guard and an arm bar to the far arm using a knee on belly set up. I got to do a lot of reps for each drill and then we got to drill them for speed on both sides for a minute on the side control recovery and 2 minutes for the arm bar using knee on belly. I helped out my partner a lot, since he was a new white belt, so I did the best that I could on helping out with this technique and movement. At that point, I get to work on my teaching and mentoring skills. After that, we did live drills for a couple of rounds from both the top and bottom position from side control.
After that, I rolled for one round with one of our black belts. It's pretty rare for me when I get to roll with a black belt. It was mostly free rolling when we rolled. I tried to work on some sweeps from half guard and deep half guard and work on some standing passes when I got the chance. Thanks for everyone's help yesterday on the training. I look forward to the next.
Powerlifting Training 11/16/18 - Bench Day
Today's training was at the 24 Hour Fitness gym at Walnut, CA. It was a quick workout, since I had a dentist appointment, my daughter had a Thanksgiving event at school, and we have an evening event with the kids. I got what I needed from the workout, but I definitely could of improve on the training, if I set up the warm up better. The workout was for less than 30 minutes.
