Omaplata Sweep

Class with Lucas continues…

But first up was deadlift day. And I’m making steady progress. Will I hit my goal by April 1? Maybe, we’ll see. In the mean time, I’m going to keep on eating meat and lifting heavy stuff.

First up with Lucas was what I’m going to refer to as a “Brazilian Warmup.” Every time we’ve had a Brazilian instructor, the warm up has been, uh, comprehensive. IE, longer and harder than what we usually do. Tonight’s included psudo-bench pressing our partners, and then rowing ourselves up by holding onto their belts.

Class was firmly in the “advanced” end of the technique pool tonight. And omaplata sweep from open guard to either side control, a shoulder lock, or an armbar. Good stuff, but complicated!
