The warm up. With the best will in the world, it can at times be a bit tedious. In the search for BJJ perfection, diligent repetition over the years is key to nailing the perfect arm bar or what have you. With the warm up in mind however, Itoigawa sensei always looks to mix it up to keep the guys on their toes during the 10am regular class…. It seems that he prefers to do his warming up as part of a team. Whether it’s team star jumps, squats with a partner clung to your back or dragging someone across the mat, these preferred methods all have one thing in common – you can’t complete them at your own pace; meaning your pushed to do more – perfect for the slacker!
