    I have hit a major wall in training, so I am starting this log to collect my thoughts and be able to go back and review what we have learned and drilled in class.

    My biggest problem is applying what is in my head to the mat. I am still inexperienced, but I have an idea of what type of game I want to play I just can't make it happen.

    4/30
    We worked mount drills. Keeping the position while the bottom person is trying different escape setups.

    Live rolls were uneventful, but I worked with the one instructor on a side mount escape. I always get caught in side mount and was trying to use an escape I saw on the Roy Dean instructional. I don't know if I was doing it backwards or not, but everytime I would go to frame with my forearm in my opponents neck I would wind up exposing my arm for a really easy kimura.

    This escape involves framing real quick both arms in close one in the neck. A quick bridge to move that arm into an underhook. Then the opposite arm goes inbetween the legs and grabs the pants. An quick elbow escape and lift of the pant leg gets you into half guard.

    I also tried to use some of the new cage hotness with the chechen overhook. I was able to get the positioning a few times, but couldn't execute any of the moves. I don't think I am flexible enough for the triangle from there. I also don't think I was creating the pressue on the shoulder that was opening up the opposite arm to be used in the sweep. I will continue to try and work on that.

    Also was shown how to break a cross collar choke by pushing the elbows in and just posturing up. It annoys me sometimes how simple something like that is, but I never thought to do it.

    Your worst enemy is yourself. I think you would do better if you just had a more confident attitude.

    Edit: Real talk.

    Last week - 222.8
    This week - 221.4

    Introducing carbs back into my diet. We'll see how this balances things out a bit.

    Tonight we worked on half guard passing into the guard and then switching and keeping your opponent from passing.

    Drills went well.

    Live rolls could have been better could have been worse. I ended up on the bottom and in side mount in the first roll, but was able to escape both which has been a problem.

    My 2nd roll was with a smaller guy and I tried to work more of the overhook 1/2 butterfly chechen stuff. I cleared the right leg for a triangle attempt, but my flexibility kept me from getting the left leg over and locking the triangle in. I did some good work on him and used some of the guard passing tech we worked in drills. I was also able to use the Roy Dean Side Mount escape on this guy which I have been unable to execute for a few classes

    3rd roll is with a huge very strong new guy. He weighs 275ish and is very very strong. I have rolled with him before and literally spend 5 minutes trapped under him. I was able to work out from under him tonight regain guard and quasisweep him and take sidemount.

    Overall it was a solid class. One of the guys I work with alot and whose game I try to emulate was told he will be getting his purple belt soon. I was pretty stoked for him.

    NoGi class on Saturday morning wasn't too bad.

    I ended up hurting my finger on my first live roll which turned out to be a fractured 4th metacarpal.

    The few rolls I had after that were difficult because I was basically going with one hand.

    I ended up having a really good roll with a smaller blue belt. I hit both a situp sweep and butterfly sweep on him. We just played a slow tech game and it was cool. Some guard passing, etc. If I got on top I would allow him out and we'd start over.

    At the end one of the guys showed me a better way to lock up a kimura and to go for an arm triangle as opposed to an arm bar when somone reaches to defend against it.

    This will be slow for the next few weeks, but I'm glad I was able to show myself some improvement this class.
