Week of 1/23-1/27: W
Word of the Month: initiate–begin, commence, start, initiate, inaugurate, usher in mean to take the first step in a course, process, or operation. begin, start, and commence are often interchangeable.
Let’s talk about initiating with how it applies to Jiu Jitsu. Mat chat talk about initiating the changes you want in your game with proper goal setting. We finished up with some of that at the end of last year. Talk about how they should write their goals down and evaluate each month on if they’re getting closer.
Talk about initiating contact in the match. or if in a bad spot initiating a transition. BE FIRST! If you’re not first, you’re last.
BJJ Curriculum: Back Take vs Back Escape from Turtle Position. Teach them the tripod escape where they tripod up and shuck the opponent off over the top: (Safety consideration: If a student feels like they’re falling over the top or side, tuck the chin and do the appropriate break fall or forward roll…. do not scorpion)
Adults/Advanced Kids: Add a Leo Vieira type somersault back take after the tripod and removal of hook/hooks. Ask me if you need me to show you what I mean. I’ll fill Jesse in on this as well.

Repetition Training/Technical for Punches – This is lining them up like Karate and having them do simple upper body combos or build. 10-20 reps. this is where they can hold a jab and you have them hold the finishing position to check their posture between resets. then a cross for instance. then a jab cross then a double jab cross. have fun with it.
