805BJJ Class 166: taking the back from side control

Mark showed us how to take the back from side control. Basically it’s a knee slide under as you pull them on top of you. He also showed us how to yank a turtle over when you can’t push it over. TJ was my drill partner, and I found out that my left side of my back, near my spine, really hurt when I took weight on it. Bad news.

But I rolled anyway. Started with Jose. Let him start on top of my turtle. He did the move of the day and choked me out. It hurt my neck. I didn’t tell him I was injured.

I told everybody else though. TJ, Cosmo, Andrew, and Jose again. I did average. Got tapped. Did some escapes. Didn’t get more injured, as far as I can tell.
