Hayakawa sensei teaching some knee trap sweeps

Welcome to November! I can’t believe that with another two months we’ll be saying goodbye to 2013 – this year certainly has flown by…. still, with the summer firmly over and the cooler weather upon us, training at Triforce is a lot easier – particularly if you’re a salaryman who needs to wear a suit to work after training 🙂

Today’s class focused on quick sweeps from the closed guard as your opponent stands. The basics of the technique centre around pinching the opponent’s knees, robbing him of stability before manipulating his sleeves for the sweep.  Hayakawa sensei showed us three variations of the sweep, of which the second one worked for me the best – should your opponent have a strong base, its possible to sit up, in turn hugging his knees before pushing off to the side for a takedown – this one works well for me because of my long legs – I hope I’m able to remember it for the future.
