Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 08/11/2016
I did a little bit of sparring today, with somebody smaller than me. That was good, as I could get some movement in without straining my back. It meant escaping was a more interesting challenge too, because I wasn't doing a lot of bridging. Instead, I was curling up on my side, looking to dig out that leg. Against somebody more experienced I probably would have been at risk of getting my back taken or more squashed under mount, but then I wouldn't normally go quite that much on my side if it wasn't for my back. ;)
Hopefully I can finally get back to normal for the rest of this week, back injuries are annoying. I have been able to do a bit of kettlebells too, which is good (light weights, sticking to things like deadlifts). The chin ups and press ups last week were good too, as that didn't have an impact on my back.
