Session 12-20-09

Just Matt and I today…
2 rds off balance/grip work
2 rds freestyle sambo
1 rds par terre (groundwork)

We ended out sambo session with some work on a failed shoulder throw, turning back, chest to chest for an inside leg hook takedown. We also worked a bit on a rolling kneebar on the ground from a whizzer grip.

We then suited up and had a nice well deserved bout with the shillelaghs. I got to try a few different approaches that worked better than I thought they would have. only one decent sized bruise…not a bad trade off at all:)

Next up we ran through some basic longsword drills for about 20 minutes to a half hour. Basically everything from zornhau then a response.

We ended the session with some restricted sparring, knife vs e-tool. only the knife wielder was allowed to initiate attacks while the guy with the shovel was allowed to parry and return or counter strike. Nice being able to do this full speed now with the trainer.

I go get an MRI Monday afternoon on my shoulder, so hopefully I can get fixed and start grappling like I did earlier in the year.

Right now I am working on a short series of training lessons for those who want to do some solo bata training. You can see them here:
