September 13th- September 18th: Fight Week
Alright guys, going to be a tight week this week, but props to Katelyn for stepping up to assist this week while we need her so Amun can cut weight without snapping at children. With Regard to Self Defense so far we’ve covered distance management, standing entries to punch blocks clinch, Double legs (youth), and closed guard was last week primarily from the knee shield with a collar tie and arm control where we did TSU, Scissor Sweep, and Triangle choke. The guard is very important, so important we need to stay a Second week in a row on it. You can go your own way with the same material with groups that really had a hard time comprehending, however I am going to do that as a warmup for my morning class but move Into, Kimura, TSU, and Hip bump Sweep. You can see that it is very important to have the ability to GET UP to get away or to other tools, GET ON TOP where you can control the fight, or have a FINISHING MOVE to end things even from the bottom.
Advanced Jiu Jitsu will still be Deep Half Guard. Let’s have lots of energy for classes this week.
I hope to see some of you in Atlanta for Coach Moon’s Fight. If not we will have a viewing party at the academy. Please announce that. I believe its 7PM but we will make a team app post regarding that. Amun has worked super hard and I’m excited to see him do what he does best.
Little Thrashers Kids Class flow. Let’s try this.
Head coach walks the first set of kids back. Assistant takes the kids finishing class to the front>Front Desk worker hands kids to the parents, and does NOT let them go outside on their own>Assistant takes the next set of kids to the back for their class. Instructor begins class while the assistant can go get kids that may be straggling. Also a reminder, we do not take kids into the bathrooms for any reason, anything like that, we get the parent from outside.
