I got to work on various positioning and submissions. Not a lot of game stuff, but I wanted to fill the holes in my game and make the adjustments during the rolls. I felt good despite the lay off from Jiu Jitsu training last week. I was really motivated today and my strength and conditioning showed. After class, I did two rounds of hip escapes and did some more stretching at home.
I'm looking to do at least 4 days of Jiu Jitsu training each week until NoGi Worlds. I want to make sure that my timing and instincts are there. Last year, I was off by a little bit and it cost me, even though it was just one match. Also, I didn't do well at the NoGi event at the JJWL Worlds Tournament. It's really important to me that I work on a system for this tournament. I will be trying out a lot of different moves and positions for these next two weeks before tightening up everything on the final week.
I will be working with my kids on chasing them around and have them pass my guard, since they move at the speed of the lightweights. This is to prepare myself for the speed part of the matches in case I do the open division. Also, this will help me improve my mobility on my bottom game.
