no warmup. class time is for grappling, not for calisthenics!!!!! yay!!!!
single leg takedown (for lorenzodamarith's benefit)
double leg takedown (same reason)
pummeling in butterfly guard
pummeling in butterfly guard, this involved closing the gap and sitting in tight, to load opponent up on legs. several options were presented to address the tactics opponent would use.
starting by pummeling in the butterfly guard, transition between:
1. load up
2. head arm control
5. assuming inability to control mount, dismount to side control
6. opponent enters butterfly guard
7. repeat process
there were a few sweeps presented to address various defenses opponent would implement. these variations involved double underhooks, under/over hooks and assumption of head/arm control from the butterfly guard. attention was given to grips, body position (to expedite sweeps).
the class progressed in what might be called phases.
1. various drills
2. each step of transition in isolation
3. each variation drilled back and forth
4. flow entire transition in continual loop
5. chess match. back and forth from butterfly guard fight for position (medium intensity).
6. chess match. live.
7. rolling the line. two lines face off, live rolling. when time is called, move on down to the next guy.
now. for impressions. out of breath most of the time, yet the class material was easy to implement (when the opportunity presented itself). all members seemed to pay close attention to making sure that the positions addressed in class "showed themselves" while live rolling. also, they each seemed to take time "giving up thier backs" (both to give a noob something different to deal with, and to work on thier own positioning). in addition, they each pulled various submissions (surprisingly gently). thier positioning was incredible.
never stood a chance!!!! it was awesome!!!! apologies for lack of some types of detail. not enough experience to relate it properly, though, would be happy to answer direct questions (these may jog the memory)!!
