Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 01/11/2016

I spent most of the hour Working with Tracey on her heel drag escape, which I think is the most important one to know for mount. Getting the leg flat was a focus, as she has some old injuries that make that tricky. Also, how to best avoid technical mount and the cross face, particularly as to get her leg flat she had to turn more on her side than you normally would. I therefore emphasised using the elbows, digging your way to freedom.

We did a bit of sparring after that: it was cool to see how much she's improved. Much calmer, considered movements, no flailing. Nice and tight on top, I had to pick up the pace a number of times. Great to see! :)
