Adrian came by to train. We worked on his blue belt test, specifically headlock escapes and sidemount escapes. After that we rolled 6 five-minute rounds with 45 seconds rest. Capped the night off with the 5 minutes of hell:
10 gable lock pull ups (5 left / 5 right)
10 hindu push ups
10 sit outs (should be 15)
We got through all 5 minutes. This is not easier, but mentally it helps to have a partner there pushing you.
Couple things I noticed in myself. Guard game has to improve (which is a focus of mine). Specifically the OODA Loop from bottom. The aggressive style is paying dividends, especially from the top but I definitely need to create a more aggressive bottom game.
