Milka's defence is looking really good, she's very tight on mount. In terms of a question she had about escaping a tight mount, I suggested the Verhoeven escape again. When attacking, I ended up prying arms out, trying to get her to turn for the back. Excellent progression! Sparring was fun, working on mount attacks, moving to the armbar.
I also went through the knee shield pass from Monday, as well as higher up hip switch version. The reverse de la Riva stuff Simon did with Christian at the camp looks cool too. Kettlebells was handy today as well. Lots of important tips, like sitting back when putting the weight down after a swing. I also need to focus on keeping a straight back when high passing the kettlebell to start. Engage glutes. I can immediately feel that tension in the lower back if I'm doing it wrong, so I'll be sticking with 24kg as my upper limit at the mo.
