Class #873
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 09/08/2017

Just Steve this morning, so after running through a couple of techniques with him we spent most of it rolling. He didn't have his gi with him, meaning I had to roll nogi, something I rarely do. The lack of collars means I can't go for the stuff I normally would in mount, plus the lack of friction makes my preferred shoulder clamp grips a good bit harder to maintain. It is good practice for tightening up submissions though, as you really have to have those locked in to stop a sweaty arm or neck slipping free. I tried the Alan Shebaro 'butterfly arms' to try and get a RNC off the death grip defence a few times where they pull down, which sort of worked but I couldn't lock it fully in. Due to it being nogi, it wasn't too hard to repeatedly get a hand into the neck and wriggle it through, but I didn't seem able to get the position properly. Joys of nogi. ;)
