…..Well yesterday we had our Grappling Intensive class featuring how to Dominate and Control the Back! We went through the basic positions ie. hooks out, hooks in, body triangle, opponent turtled, opponent flat on belly. We worked a number of different ways to break down someone who has turtled on you. Eventually we moved into how to take the back from various positions ie. guard, mount, crossbody, etc. Then we moved into some Submissions and how to vary up the submissions by placing the movement in a different order. Eventually we moved into how to defend the back and reverse position. When teaching I try to point out the little details. It is simply amazing what a foot here or creating a little space there will do or when you can and cannot cross your ankles. These little details really separate someone who knows what they are doing compared to someone who just has an understanding. One of my instructors used to say to me, “Brian it is all in the little details.” This is simply a very true statement.
See You On The Mats!
