Lets talk jiu jitsu though.
Its nogi by default (shorts and shirt). And I like to teach using games, I do get them to do alot of drilling but I find they respond really well to these "games". I.E guard passing, holding open guard while the top guy tries to touch your head, try throw Jadon, moving round someones body whilst keeping consistent pressure, sumo. Been racking my brain trying to think of some new ones. Drill wise have been doing basic techniques with at the moment more emphasis on posture, base,pressure,escapes, passing and sweeping than the submissions. Although I have introduced a few. Been quite carefull to avoid any injuries.
Occasionaly I throw in a game that is good for me as well. I.E throw jadon. Where I let them get what ever grip they want (they love single leg) and then I defend. After which I explain the defense I used and get them to drill it. Also do it in a passing and sweeping sense, each time making sure I explain what I did. As its a small class I spend alot of time on them individually and roll with them giving feedback. I am getting more concise and my explanations clearer, which is important as babbling just confuses them.
Personelly I have been focusing on some de la riva (when Im rolling)as its a good oppertunity for me to get it up to scratch, and Im getting comfortable keeping people off balance with it. Even without the sleeve grips. By the time I get back to the UK Im gonna be in top form, never mind rusty!. Each time I correct someones mistake I am also correcting myself not to make the same mistake. And although Im not getting a workout or am being pushed by someone equal or better than me, Im still learning from them. Combining moves together is at the fore front my mind for my own development recently.
- Sit up sweep goes with kimura
- Pendelum sweep goes with armbar
- Scissor sweep can setup a collar choke or even omoplata
- An omoplata can lead to a reversal of position (not quite a sweep)
- Triangle leads to mounted triangle (sweep?)
- Half guard arm triangle can lead to a sweep
- Triangle can also = armbar and even kimura depending on their defense
- You can sweep someone from underneath side control using an americana
- etc etc
