While back home visiting my mom I dropped in on a small BJJ school for a class. I love to train whenever I travel and I have had nothing but great experiences doing so. The guys here were extremely friendly. There was another visitor along with me. He was an old friend of the instructor and he taught a half guard sweep technique.
We drilled the technique and then did some positional sparring followed by 5 minute sparring rounds with 30 seconds rest. The highest student in the class was a 2 stripe blue belt so during sparring everyone seemed to want to take on the newcomer and did so with all their might.
It was great for me because I really got a workout and these guys had games that I’m not used to going against.
