We covered some solid basics in class and I went with a new guy and helped him through it, giving him tips where needed. I need to talk less.

Warming up with Kimura's!
Also worked on setting up the triangle from mount, which really improved my existing thoughts on it. Head control, hooking the leg underneath and arm control. Pulled it off during sparring which is always a good sign. Sparred Terry whose defense is really improving, but Im quite unrelenting with him as he can be sneaky. No longer catching him in armbars or ezekiels, really having to work for the subs.
Also sparred a new guy, talked to him abit on keeping tight and working his game. Illustrated this by passing his guard a few times. He was flinging on triangles without the control. But he made some progress, was very relaxed and a great attitude.
Finished up with some sparring, a warm down and then Andy giving out some presents to the guys who helped him do the place up. Well deserved.
Warming down or dancing to "thriller", you decide.
Me and all the boys listining to Andy telling us for the 5th time not to walk around barefoot. We have shoe cubby holes now!
