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

12/07/2016 – Open Mat

Class #752
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 12/07/2016

Today I focused on working through some techniques with one of the white belts, as they had a long list to go through. That's always awesome to see: open mat should be about refining technique and drilling. To come in that prepared is great! I do something comparable I guess, writing things up on this blog. Though it does sometimes get quite short, especially if I'm in the process of catching up on lots of blogs posts, like now. I'm typing this near the end of the month, having finally started to catch up on a big back log caused by the BJJ Globetrotter camps.

The camps are amazing, but next time, I will need to dedicate more time to getting stuff typed up on the day or shortly afterwards. That way it stays fresher in my head. On the other hand, it's a good exercise to look back through all the videos and type up a class from a few weeks ago, as that makes me run through all the techniques again. There is a lot I want to practice over the next few months: I've got enough material to last me a long time, certainly until the next camp. ;)
