Open Mat

Still a lighter than usual group for a Saturday due to a lot of people being in Vegas.

We skipped the warm up, did a light round, and then were self paired. I had Nick, Aria, Popsicle, Mick and then a few white belts to recover.

Popsicle got me three times in a row with a scissor sweep, omaplata combo. I see the sweep coming, and post out to stop it, which opens me up to the omaplata. I asked him about it afterwards. He said “Back up two steps.” Thinking out loud, stopping the omaplata isn’t related to stopping the sweep….but the collar grip he had that set up the sweep in the first place.

Always learning.
