Teaching #707
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 08/10/2017

Not much to say about this class, as I again went with the movement drill sequence that I taught before going on holiday (difference this time being that it was a nogi class, but the same apart from that). On crossing the feet for that side to side knee ride, it is worth mentioning that you don't quite cross them, it should be a smooth switch to the other side. Tamzin got it first time, which was cool to see. :)

For the movement drill in general, I checked with Josh again later to clarify exactly how it went, as it felt like it devolved into sparring a few times. From what he said, the rule is no grips at all, you're only allow to push on the levers, so like pushing an arm across. You can't solidify any grips, as that slows everything right down. I will keep trying it, I like the idea of improving everybody's mobility (my own could do with some work too ;D).
