Training was good last night. My energy was higher than Tuesday. I also got to the dojo half an hour early because I suspected Dmitri would turn up early which he did, so we could drill some stuff. There are a million and one things I want to drill to improve my jiu-jitsu and also get a good warm up. Maybe now that I have the chance to do drilling with someone I should break out the Andre Galvao book Drill to Win. I would also like to drill sets, that is a string of technique together in a logic progression that helps my body remember the movement. For example, person 1 guard passes, person 2 turtles, gramby rolls to recover then arm drags, person 1 counters the arm drag and moves to side control, knee on belly far side armbar. Rinse repeat. Both guys get muscle memory of countering and attacking. There are so many sets that could be made this way I'm suprised nobody has made a video of common chained movements that can be used to drill.
