13/06/2017 - Open Mat (Tuesday)

Class #829
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 13/06/2017

I've had serious sleep deprivation since watching the election coverage last Thursday, with a grand total of about 4 hours sleep since then. When I get that sleep deprived, I get quite hyper, it feels a lot like being drunk. So I was babbling a lot at open mat today, still managed to be productive though. There are lots of new classes in the work, which will be especially good for my training as a lot of it is open mat. Today, I went through the shin-on-shin stuff from Kev's seminar with Matt H, which helped solidify those in my head. I've done them before (at private lessons with Kev back in 2015, plus Ana's seminar in 2016), but I haven't used them much recently as my shins kept getting bashed up. Something to go back to, I think.

Heidi has been improving fast, so today I said that I wouldn't hold back as much as I normally do when rolling. She handled it fine, plus we both had fun, so I shall do that more often. She is very consistent at coming to open mat, making her one of my main training partners as a result. The better she gets, the better my training gets: hooray! :D
