Students: Daniel, Ben, Bob, Frank, Jess
Had Bob teach a version of seoi nage where we took a lowered collar grip and squared way down. I am feeling pretty good about my kazushi. Working with Bob on the details is paying off.
Some tips on the hook sweep:
- It's important to control both your posture and theirs
- Use the underhook to lift their shoulder
- Use your overhook to pull down their other shoulder
- Fall directly to the side not back.
Rolling: Closed Guard, Butterfly Guard, Free Rolling
Rolled With: Daniel, Frank, Bob
Went for the butterfly sweep from the bottom every chance I got. During free rolling, I mostly started on the bottom, but attacked for a sweep and tried to push the pace.
Office Hours Partner: Daniel
Worked with him on butterfly sweep mostly the things mentioned above. He helped me with making my crucifix from turtle better. I've gotten there regularly lately but they've been able to escape by stepping over my legs. Once I trap their arm I need to move my hips toward their head instead of hips.
