Training 11-02-17

Fundamental tonight covered half guard options. I drilled with a guy that started about a year after me but is very committed and athletic. He is also a regular competitor so it was different drilling the moves with someone that doesn’t waste a second socializing and drills as many repetitions as he can. 

Afterward during open mat I rolled with him and for the first time he caught me in a submission. It honestly surprised me but it shouldn’t have. Quite frankly he’s been putting in the mat time and I haven’t lately. It goes to show that there is not replacement for hard work and time on the mats.

I was able to even things up with a toe hold submission on the next roll so I still got a little magic left in me.
