I went to our traditional class last night. It's not really that traditional really but we do a lot of judo. I can't seem to get to the gym before 6:30 so I was about 35 minutes late for class. When I got there John had the guys working on a guillotine. The guys that are training at the gym right now are from a different gym, which is transitioning to a new space now, and they all fight. So the class was no-gi, even though on Tues. it is usually a gi class.
Anyway, when I got there I initially worked with this guy who is really good at judo and that was fun. Then I worked with another fighter, which was alright but I was learning a new technique and he was giving a lot of resistance even though we were supposed to just be drilling. It was pretty frustrating. We were doing a throw off a failed guillotine. It was pretty sweet, although I almost never end up in this position.
We rolled for about 3 rounds. The first couple of rounds went alright. I rolled with some pretty inexperienced guys so I got to work on a few things, like sweeps. Then I ended up rolling with a guy that was definitely more experienced than me and of course a lot stronger. My shoulder still hurts. I would have thought that because the guy had some experience and could clearly tell that he was more advanced than I was that he wouldn't feel the need to crank every submission like it was going out of style. I don't understand why guys feel like that have to get all fucking hard core I mean I tapped almost immediately and he still basically ripped my arm off. It's just frustrating.
Then I went over to brazil academy and did jiujitsu. The regular instructor is in brazil right now so a brown belt taught class. It was cool because we got to drill a bunch of armbars and no one likes drilling armbars more than me. I think armbars will end up being my go to move.
We rolled 3 rounds in that class also. I got to roll with another female blue belt, which is nice because we are similar sized and experience. Then I rolled with Ninja, he's a purple belt and he's really technical. Finally, I rolled with a new guy, which I was really nervous about. He wasn't all spastic, I was so relieved.
