What techniques did you learn this week?

Postby Mr Kreaky Bones » Thu Nov 08, 2007 7:43 pm

I am guessing that people on this site are actually training martial arts, not just watching it on video. What technique, combination, or strategy did you practice on the mat or in the ring this week?

This week I was practicing a two arm shoulder throw- morote seoinage.

I learned a variation of the guillotine chock that uses the elbow to apply downard pressure on the opponents back instead of just applying upper pressure. Just secure the chock then use the gabble grip to lock your hands. Throw your outside arm over their closest shoulder and use the elbow to push downards as you apply upper force with your other locked arm. Turns the guillotine into more of a vice grip chock.

Good to see a fellow Judo student. Took me forever to get the hang of a uchimatasukashi throw.

Close yet so far away. Would be fun to spare. Always looking for new partners.

Striking we've been working a lot of clinch work- single collar ties, control with the MT clinch, etc. Basically just controlling in various clinches and what to do with them.
Grappling we've done a TON of work with the butterfly guard which I used to hate but am getting really good at it now. There's a lot of sneaky armlocks you can nab from the butterfly guard.

Really? That's crazy, I have only learned a few basic sweeps from butterfly. I'm glad that I have something to look forward too. I guess there are armlocks from most any position.

There are lots of tricky submissions from the butterfly guard. It's just harder to control your opponent from that position and the space between each other leaves you open to take shots. Wrist control can be key from that position.

Aikido wrist control techniques are a lot easier to use during grappling like the butterfly than standing.

But this week in class we practiced a sacrifice throw called Yoko Otoshi.

I'm not sure what to call this, but I guess you could say we've been working on guard sweeps. I'm on my back and my opponent is standing, throwing a punch - we worked on how to block said punch and sweep the oppoent to the mat in such a way that we are guaranteed either mount, back control or side control. Kinda sweet, but the great part about our last class was my COMPLETE domination over my main training partner. We are normally a fairly even match, except this time I caught him in an omoplata, a gogoplata (hellsyah), anaconda choke, AND, that's right, I got him in the twister. Thank you Eddie Bravo!

Is class a chance to teach your training partners what you know and learn from them or is it just a simulated competition to show off your skills? Last year I would be really excited when I could get someone from my gym to tap, but lately I feel as if I haven't gotten all that I could from the class time unless I have a chance to discuss my mistakes or show a counter to the technique.

If there is a tap during training I will ask my partner to restart from the position until we have both worked out several counters or strategies.

I feel as if a lot of people from my school take the grappling class as a competition, as you say. It is split up into about 45 minutes of instruction, and another 45 minutes of free rolling (optional). What bothers me is that some people just go through the motions of instruction and when it comes to open mat, they just go nuts trying to submit people, disregarding whatever it was their instructor just taught them. When I am rolling with a partner, I do my best to help him along and I expect the same from him. For example, we begin and I immediately get a slick takedown and take side control. If I keep that position and just hold him down OR just put him in an americana, he'll learn nothing except "don't roll with that dude". Instead, I'll do my best to maintain my posistion, but if he has too much trouble, I'll either ease up or say "bridge and slide your knee past me, take half guard; good job!". I feel that open mat is a great time to work on your skills, maybe show off a little, but, a) be smart, don't hurt anybody, and b) make sure everyone is learning something useful, taking something away from class. You're not there to tap everybody; you're there to work as a team and build each other up.
