|After (almost 1kg of sweat!)|
Today James and I worked on escapes from kesa-gatame and side control. I'm very comfortable getting out of kesa-gatame but when in side control I am still not good at efficiently using frames, bridging, shrimping and then returning to guard. I just need to drill it more with resistance. The escape is very easy with no resistance but when done with a resisting opponent who is the same size it is way tougher. It's just something I need to work on more each session.
We ended the workout with 3 x 5 min rounds of nogi. It's much better to do nogi in these temperatures. There are lots of people (usually old) dying right now in Japan from heat exhaustion. It's no joke.
