Visiting purple belt called Freddie, so that was cool. He had a variation on the arm triangle to show, where you focus on digging your head by their shoulder, bringing the butt up high and driving in for the submission. That seemed quite effective, so something to play with. I was playing with the de la Riva x, but had trouble getting the legs properly controlled, I felt like I was too far away. I need to review the videos from Steve, Ana and Lilo some more: I've got plenty of well taught de la Riva x to look at now, so that should be enough to get this into something practical that I can use regularly. After all, I want more long distance open guard options. ;)
