Next, I spent a long round with various students in class on specific training from full guard. I got to work on passing with three students from the top position from full guard, and submitting or sweeping from the bottom. Working with the grappling dummy has paid off dividends, since my sensitivity and creativity have gone up during these specific training situations. I was able to either chain or set up the sweeps from various positions. I felt pretty good today, but my size is definitely hurting my bottom game, since I'm significantly less mobile. After that, we did some core work.
I weighed with my Gi on after class and I'm 326lbs. Without the Gi, I'm about 321lbs. I wear an A4 for my Gis. My goal for the rest of the month is to drop to 317lbs. Before the pandemic, I was at around 295lbs, so I definitely gained a lot. I'm sure that my game and conditioning will improve once the weight is off.
