i think its time that i start my own training log. what better day than to start on a monday. my background, ive been training with the academy im at right now since november 2007. before i just had "backyard" training, just some friends who trained before showing me some basic techniques at a local gym. went to class at 7:15. did warmups, abs and stretches for 15 minutes. then did gaurd pass drills for 5 minutes, with the person on bottom sweeping or submitting. then went right into mount escape drills for 5 minutes, with the person on top maintaing top control and submitting. then went right into back escape drills for 5 minutes, with the person taking the back or submitting. then went right into north/south drills for 5 minutes, with the person on top maintaining control and submitting. after the drills our instructor was frustrated at how many of the guys couldnt just maintain control. so we worked on mount, knee on belly, sidemount, and north south for rest of the class. just drilling basic mounts. after class they let us roll for 3 5 minute rounds. i did pretty good in my humble opinion. i went against 3 guys, 2 were good wrestlers (wrestled in hs and wrestling in college), with basic submission skills, and 1 semi-noob. i submitted all of them more than once, and just basically tried to work my sweeps and mounts that we learned in class. didnt get submitted once seems like my favorite submission is the triangle right now, i can get it on a lot of people at will most of the time, and when people try to pass my guard from standing, i somehow just snag it on them when they come down on me. a lot of the guys in class know me as the triangle kid all in all it was a great class, i needed this class as i sometimes just forget the fundamentals (maintaining control).
