My energy is very high during sparring - thanks Tapout XT. I feel functionally strong and feel like I can go longer with the tougher guys. I am also trying to adopt Gunner Nelson's approach of a quiet mind. Just relax, don't stress while sparring, relax the body and mind...and above all breathe correctly. During sparring I am happy to report that I am getting better at hip escaping when in a dangerous position. I still need to break the opponent's grips and be more pre-emptive.
Sparring time: 6 x 6 mins = 36 minsNotable moments: Twister side control to back take, low pressure guard passing is getting better
