Week of 1/4-1/9
Alright Gentlemen, Let’s start the New Year off by getting back to some basic Jiu Jitsu and an emphasis on the dealing with the Closed Guard. Since it’s week one of the month. Lets look at getting there. We will be doing Top as well as bottom work from the Closed Guard this month. We have some different instructors working with Kid’s and some with adults. Put your own flavor on it. Below I’ll give my take on what I’ll likely teach for the classes.
Word of the Month: Respect- from our Triforce Ethos. Talk about what it is, and who are some individuals you respect and why. Let’s ask some of the students who they respect.
