Swimming in Sweat

Summer is here. I fully expected a hot and sweaty night of jiu jitsu. But I didn’t expect it to be no-gi night! Apparently it’s going to be no gi on Mondays going forward. Caught some guys off guard, they didn’t have shorts. Not me, I’m always prepared.

Tim led the class. For drilling, we did a very basic break down from closed guard, the no-gi simple sweep, and a triangle setup. I drilled with Seth (formerly known as Little Seth).

For rounds, we split into groups of 3. 10 minutes in, 5 out. I had Wade and Tim. It’s going to take a while to get used to no-gi again. Both Wade and I were going for grips that just don’t exist anymore! I did pretty good with Wade. I had a really slick arm triangle escape into a back take. I did okay with Tim too.
