Week of April 5th: Word of the Month- Loyalty
Hey guys, We got alot coming up. Moon fights in two weeks. This is a taper week for him and “cut” week is next week. Give him the training he needs, but don’t do things that are unsafe. Victory is soon. This month I’m going to operate in the butterfly guard. Week one, hook sweep. For beginners I like to have them start one leg up, one leg down collar and sleeve and steering wheel them over.
Once you get on top, side mount, you guys can move into submissions, even the stuff you did last week to cap off half guard passing to submission. You can also show shrimp to guard from bottom half guard and how that goes right into this hook sweep we are talking about. I think thats a good setup.
If anyone asks or shows incredible interest in this guard. This month im offering a 5 part Butterfly Guard lesson. I will adapt it for the student, but basically I’ll give them a game. filled with escapes to, retention, attacks, and a game plan. Don’t push it, don’t announce it at class. But after this month, my mind is going to go elsewhere and I won’t want to show this probably. The cost is $500 cash money if you mention it to them. I have one student (franko) who Im going to turn into a savage starting this week. If you’re an instructor and want to sit in Ill have you be camera man or Uke, or fly on the wall. Happy to help.
Word of the Month Loyalty.
giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution.
Ask them who or what they should be loyal to?
family, parents, church, country, JJ school, school team sport, may come up, please encourage them to be loyal to self. This ties into respect, and discipline(self). One should always be loyal to self and we can do this by not letting others distract or encourage us to deviate to things that aren’t true to our focus.
