805BJJ Class 125: guard passing drills, takedown drills

Class started this Saturday morning with Mark chewing everyone out for not showing up for Friday/Sunday classes, and then getting worked when we did show up. I *can’t* show up to those things so whatever.

He taught us not to reach forward to the lapel until we cleared the legs, then got us in pairs to practice doing that, while the white belts went off to learn the basics. I should have gone with the white belts rather than pair up with Shabbar. He smashed me. I didn’t win any battles.

Then we all lined up against the wall. I started down and Shabbar filled in on top. We did pass or sweep drills. I didn’t win any battles.

Then we got in groups of 3. I got put in with Greggo and Tom. Guard pass or sweep, odd man out. I didn’t win any battles.

Then we did stand up takedowns. Odd man out. I didn’t win any battles. In fact, I got smashed down several times and I jammed my toe on a sacrifice throw attempt that failed. I spent the rest of the time trying not to get hurt, but I failed there too.
