Last night I trained at the gym. I can actually start to feel my body get accustomed to the routine of training 3-4 times a week. It only took 3 weeks, but my body is turning the corner. Class was good. I'm helping a lot of the new guys and last week I even taught class. I like the challenge teaching presents. In many ways it feels as if it helps me refine my technique. If I am able to walk a person through a technique, showing them details, it proves to me at least I understand the technique and the importance of certain details. Last night Jaime showed an attack from half guard (top).
- step over is essential
- elbow must be 90 degrees or less for the roll
- finish by using legs to separate shoulder from socket.
I felt so good that this morning, I woke up and went to the pool and swam. I only covered 500 meters but it was good to get out there and feel how cold it gets. With the pool being heated, it made for a great swim.
