Well its time to take a few days to rest the body and enjoy time with family and friends. Training has been vary productive in the last 2 months since I returned from injury. I have finally decided to open up my mind and my guard. It has been very liberating. Its as if I have been fighting against myself for so long, trying to play a game that was not suited for me. I feel like my Jiu Jitsu has been striped down and I am rebuilding from the bottom up. Of course we have tons of moves, transitions, and experiences that still make our games what they are but I am refining all of that one day at a time. The only regret I have in my training is that I have not been able to train at night much. My boys are both in Wrestling and that takes up most of my evenings. At the same time its been awesome to watch Wrestling. Its like Jiu Jitsus hyper strong brother. Just being at their training sessions has allowed me the watch how dynamic the take downs and top control are in Wrestling. I hope to build upon this part of my game in due time. Hopefully as my boys age I can teach them some BJJ, they can teach me some wresting, and we can grow as grapplers all around! ;) Sorry for the lack of updates. I hope to write more in the coming year. I will be putting together some goals for 2011 soon.
Until then...check out this great instructional from www.mginaction.com on how to defend your opponents attempt to pass your open guard. A game changer if you ask me!
