With every low must come a high. The surprising things is I’ve missed a lot of class due to everything from family to sickness. I’ve spent time doing solo drills with my Submission Master Grappling Dummy, which has helped, but nothing can be a complete substitute for live submission grappling. Despite it all I’ve done great when I have made it to class. I’m feeling high on BJJ.
Last night I sat out with something pulled in my back. I thought about staying home but I really wanted to be there. I missed the comradery. I missed my Jiu-Jitsu family and the fun I have with them each week. I sat and watched. I found myself tensing up during different parts of the training. During the rolling I wanted to be in the action. I wanted to call out submissions, sweeps, and escapes I saw that others didn’t. It was about as good as a suspenseful movie!
Today I was asked to substitute for Miles and teach the free High School class. We are going over sweeps. I want to do some simple but effective sweeps. I have a few in mind but any suggestions from my readers would be appreciated.
Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
