BJJ tonight was rough for me. I’ve had a cough for over a month (second doctor visit pending) and it’s been causing my asthma to flare up. Needless to say that in addition to the 2 week layoff has affected my conditioning. After practice instead of going our and rolling a few more rounds with the guys I took to the mat to play with my kids. Some grappling and some fun drills. One of the drills I did is called crazy horse and involves having one of the boys get on my back, wrap their arms around my neck and get their hooks in and try to hang on while I buck, spin, and generally make it a crazy ride. They love playing that game and the best part is that it’s a great drill for teaching them how to take and remain in back mount. My youngest son is completely in love with all things BJJ and MMA. The beginning of the post shows him getting me in an arm bar and here is how excited he gets after I “tap out”.
