Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 16/07/2017

Hooray for visitors! Diego from Spain is training with us at the moment, which is cool. He's going to be here for a month. Lots of experience, plus he's a judo black belt who teaches. Many skills to share! :D

I got in a good roll with Paul today, after praciticing posture inside guard. I've been testing out the approach where you thrust your pelvis forward for base, rather than relying so much on your arms. I think I'm still relying quite a bit on my arms, as my neck ends up feeling a bit sore afterwards (presumably from the tension of hunching up, when I should stay relaxed). Also, turns out that wristlocks are a good option when they are rolling out of an armbar and you're about to lose the belly down option. ;)

Roll call for today: Diego, Lisa, Paul, Kirsty W, Heidi, Paulina. Rich.
