Back to the Wall (diary entry)

Against the Cage112.01.2022

Tonight’s junior MMA lesson continued where we last left off at: fighting off the cage wall. We trained switching sides whilst pinning with the shoulder, head and elbow as well as reversing the position. The lesson finished with 4 x 2 minute rounds of specific sparring, attacking and defending off the cage.

Tonight’s senior submission grappling continued fighting from the half-guard. We looked at the electric chair sweep and then revised the knee-bar and foot-hold before attacking from the top with a spinning knee-bar/foot-hold. Next we sparring 3 x 5 minute rounds. The first two were specific sparring from half-guard whilst the final one was freestyle submission sparring starting from standing.
