Cole Franson is a brown belt that trains at Tinguinha HQ and is an avid competitor. Check out some of his matches on youtube. Greg brought him out to give us a taste of a different style of BJJ from a high level competitor.
I didn't take as good of notes as I normally do for a seminar so a lot of this is from memory and I probably forgot some of it. I plan on using much of this as I enjoy guillotines. I'd like to get good at berimbolos some day but it just hasn't been a focus of mine yet. I did enjoy the lasso stuff that we did though.
Cole ended up rolling a lot and he looked smooth and always in control. For my experience rolling with him, I didn't ever feel like I got him in a position that I wanted him in. I attempted my over/under pass and I couldn't push his foot down between my legs. I put him in deep half and I couldn't hold him tight to my shoulder. When I tried to pass his guard he inverted and kind of walked back up into me and reguarded. So I have a lot to learn still, duh.
We had an unfortunate accident Friday night as my buddy Craig dislocated his elbow while posting on a scissor sweep. We got him taken care of at the hospital where they relocated it and doped him up a bit. Then back home safely that night.
