This website is about Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ). I'm a black belt who started in 2006, teaching and training at Artemis BJJ in Bristol, UK. All content ©Can Sönmez

21/06/2015 - Open Mat

Class #650
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Open Mat, Bristol, UK - 21/06/2015

I didn't get in much training myself today, although I did get in one round of sparring. Mostly open guard, though not working my usual sequence as I didn't want to knock her over (as she has back and leg issues). Makes for an interesting challenge, as I can't rely on the usual sweeps. I went for the shoulder clamp in closed guard as usual, and as usual without much success. I'm remembering to do specific sparring as much as possible, so that's giving me plenty of time to not manage to get the shoulder clamp. But meh, it will click eventually. ;)

The competition isn't that far away now, with three Artemis BJJ students taking part. All of them were there today, mostly testing out their takedowns. One of them was quite interesting, apparently something Nur was doing at training on Friday. Quite simple, as you just grab their collar with both of your hands, then yank them down, aiming to move straight into turtle.
