Week of 6/21-6/26: Sequencing
From top to bottom start incorporating sequences involving what we’ve been doing for two months.
Takedowns to back control, to attacks and defenses.
Duck under>mat return>back take>Japanese escape
duck under>mat return>back take>chair sit >armbar>Spider web escape>pass>back take>finish
these are two examples only. make sure the techniques apply to the classes you’ve been working with and they can handle the material. Some classes the sequencing will be as short as back take from turtle to back escape. Some classes will be vast. I’m teaching a seminar of spider/lasso and DLR in Texas in a few weeks, so in my advanced classes im going to be changing directions completely from what we’ve been doing most of the year. I’ll be simplifying the beginner level curriculums so at least we stay on the same themes.
Side note: We will be severely understaffed this week. Any help with cleaning the mats, extra assistance in classes is appreaciated. We got Jesse, John, Tim Blue, and Andrew out for most to all of the week.
Instructor Focus Points: Let’s make sure we don’t talk tooooo much during Beginners classes. I think at the LEAST the groups should get 7 minutes drilling a move set every time we break to drill(thats 2-3 times in a class minimum). Additionally they should get 15 minutes of live training in adult fundamentals now that they are all one hour long, and 12 minutes for the kids beginners. If they were getting 10 min before, in the 45 min classes, there’s not a reason for them to only be getting 1-2 x3 minute rounds now. So monitor your instruction, be deliberately concise.
