My respect for wrestlers grows every time we do a wrestling focused technique. Tonight it was a variation of the Russian tie. This is a two-on-one control position, and we used it to transition into both a single leg takedown and a double.

We drilled for a while, then went live. I was paired up with Jen and we did two rounds with each of us having the tie for 3 minutes. I had some success with it, though I prefer the arm drag double.

We then rounded class out with a single 20 minute round of rolling. Nothing was easy tonight.
