31/07/2016 - Open Mat | Open Guard

Class #759
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 31/07/2016

I can get into a habit sometimes at open mat of wandering around watching, rather than getting stuck in sparring, especially with the more challenging opponents. I forced myself to do some sparring with Sam today, after he asked. I need to do that more, otherwise I'm not going to improve. I also need to make it specific, isolate my problem areas. I was trying out sweeps today from open guard, shifting from shin on shin to reverse and deep de la Riva. The shin-on-shin was tricky with Sam, but the reverse de la Riva tripod sweep worked a few times, making me happy. Naturally it is only sparring, but I was nevertheless pleased to be able to hit that. :)
