7/5-7/10:Welcome Back Andrew
Hope Andrew had a good time at band camp. Kaleb, if you picked something up in NY, you better fucking share it. I’ll be out 7/9-7/11 to Instruct some Seminars in TX. I’ll take the camera and I’ll be uploading the content to the Online Academy here.
Great Feedback at the meeting on Friday guys I appreciate you all and your comments especially in regard to fundamentals classes.
Functional/Technical Warmups. Lets do them. No more running at night. John does a great job of this, let’s do more. you have 15 min of warmup time. Make it happen. Same warmups the whole week for all fundamentals classes. (Monday we’re just jumping in so those will carry over tues/thurs/sat)
Also here’s how the new “themes” will work for a while.
Monday- my no gi beginners classes will be less instruction and more doing, a lot of drills, some instruction but mostly in sequence.
Tuesday- The “normal” class. 2-3 techniques, giving students at least 7 minutes to drill techniques, where the instructor is really hands on and points out details and then 15 min training
Thursday– This will be Positional Sparring day. So the instructor will teach 1-2 techniques. 25 min live. 10 positional 15 regular. 25 positional. 15 positional 10 regular. you get it, I don’t care the ratio. it can be what you feel the class needs. Let’s try this. Keep the initial positional training relative to the classes of the week, then you can branch out to other stuff.
Beginners: This week we will closed guard play from the Kimura setups to the finish! Next week we will work defense to passing.
Kimura, Guillotine, Hip Bump, drags to the back , omoplata etc. A lot of cool sequences will happen tonight
Advanced Kids Classes: Taking the back from RDLR & DLR
Advanced Adults: Mix of DLR & Spider/Lasso Guard Play through this week
