It's going to be a short post....I've trained every day this week, which is a bump up for me. Tonight we worked far-side armbars from side control again, including the wrist-wrap from last night. This is probably my favorite new technique from the last month; this and the rolling back take could really turn into something.
I got to roll with Brady after class for a while, and that was entertaining. He's a mongoose on speed with the second-best curled mustache I've seen. He isn't the fastest or the most precise, but he's damned good. I didn't get tapped, so I have that going for me. But let's balance the scales: I couldn't pass his guard, I struggled (with varying levels of success) to maintain posture, I got stuck on my knees more than once, and felt more like I was maintaining rather than attacking.
Again: advances, none miraculous. Just keep pushing to get mat time. I'm wrecked right now, and need the sleep so I can go get some more time in tomorrow. No rest for the wicked.
