We had some visitors today, which is always cool. I remember Ellie from the BJJ Globetrotters camp in Bournemouth, as we partnered up for one of the techniques. Jay popped down as well (he was at Bournemouth too, but I didn't get the chance to chat). I spent most of today drilling with Rich, taking a look at some of the techniques he missed, along with a few he wanted to work on some more. Going through the armbar from the back, the problem there as ever is getting that arm over their head. I experimented with another option, where you maintain one arm hooked around theirs, releasing the other to grab their leg to help your spin. I'm not sure how viable that is (due to giving up the secure control of a figure four grip), but something to play with.

I also fit in a roll with Jay and then Ellie at the end. Jay was doing a good job of trying to block one side with an arm, which helped break down my ability to control with my knee. He eventually rolled me over with an old school headlock, which was fun. ;)
