Session 7-6-08 NEOHEMAS

4 of us today…a nice cool 88 F in our training area when we started today.

2 rds shadow boxing
We set up a nifty little corner using three of our wrestling mats and
did some sparring from inside the corner and against the guy stuck in
the corner. I went first and did three rds then one extra rd just
plain ol’ sparring, the other guys each took turns doing extra rds in
the corner. Worked on some exscape and trapping strategies, overall
ring generalship as well. It is easy to let your training partners off
the hook when they start going our of bounds…this corner gives us no
out of bounds so we can work on pressing the attack closer without
letting up.

Next up we did a rd of ground engagement then a round of seated stick
which turns out to be more of a rd of pure physical extertion but it
still is fun.

We threw our kurtkas on and did three short rds without breaks of off
balancing/grip work with a focus on being yielding and not fighting so
hard to oppose our partners every action.

We worked on a few options from a Russian 2 on 1 arm grab then jumped
right into 3 rds of some cooperative standing grappling taking turns
doing throws and takedowns.

We ended the day working on some escapes from cross body position and
general submissions on the ground. We have Chris our mma guy leading
us in that department.

Wed I worked out alone with Matt and we did a ton of conditioning
along with sambo and axe work….Thursday Just came out and we worked
alot of the corner concepts and on defending strikes ont he
ground….another good session. Not overly long but we did some good

If these guys keep me working this hard all summer, I may actually be
in shape by the time fall rolls around.
