Congrats to all the triforce competitors who fought yesterday at the event- there was a super turnout of competitors, along with a sizeable number o spectators.
Lots of work utilising the half guard today- super easy for the stockier guys in training, but a little tricky for the taller ones- especially the 3rd variation which saw opponents standing – most difficult!
Had a bit of a look at the no gi class today: I have zero skill at it, but some of the guys looked just as comfortable with the gi as without!
Somebody told me about “May sickness” 五月病 recently- I’m not sure whether just hearing about this phenomenon triggered something with me, but lord it was difficult to motivate myself to get up and get to Triforce this morning!
I was happy to blow the cobwebs out with the regular class though- technique of the day focused on chokes- something I’m looking to add to my game…
Matt also turned up and trained with us after spending time back in the US: nice to see you back buddy!
Beginner class today got off to a slow start, only three or four of us as start time approached- guys kept filing in though and soon we had a good number of guys during the sparring portion of class:)
