Lots of positional sparring today. Escapes from side mount. Takedowns from the double underhooks, including my personal favorite, the highdive.
After a couple of months of working on wrestling fundamentals and position, we're finally revisiting submission fighting. I've been drilling the importance of position into these guys because once you get dominant position, submissions become 100% easier. Plus it doesn't take a black belt in anything to drop undefended punches and elbows at will when you've got an opening a mile wide.
We worked on setting up the double wrist lock/kimura. (Lots of trouble-shooting with space issues. You can't afford to have personal space issues in a fight.) The classic kimura to armbar transition.
Q&A about unified rules. Practical examples of what "effective striking, grappling, and ring control" means.
Breaking the other guy's posture and capitalizing on broken posture. Guillotine variations with the option to transition to the grovit. Don't try that one at home, people. It's a stupidly easy way to snap a neck. Got to love Catch Wrestling's lassez faire attitude to whether or not your opponent can walk away after a match.
Finished with some grappling, boxing, and sanda sparring. I got to work a bit on rolling with the right cross and returning a straight right. Works like clockwork when it works. Thanks guys, that was fun today.
