What a crazy week it was at Haven Jiu Jitsu! We finished up our competition prep and now we focus on staying healthy and waiting for the Grappling Industries tournament (in Syracuse, on December 11th).
To get everyone ready to compete, we hosted a couple of seminars. Our first seminar was with Rich D’Amico, who taught us wrestling set ups. We had a great turnout, and it was nice seeing Rich in his element – on the mats. Next, “Big” Rob White taught a Judo seminar. Because we are so grateful for all of you making Haven the amazing place that it is, both seminars were free to members. Check out our instagram to see some clips from the Judo and Wrestling seminar. https://www.instagram.com/p/CXG0tl4rdyu/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
In last week’s classes, we covered:
- Kids: Knee tap and then the roll under
- Gi and no gi: Closed guard to guillotine. If they defend the guillotine, then the Cow catcher
This week we focus on making weight and making sure we stay healthy for the tournament. I cannot stress this enough. These tournaments are all about the experience. You will be nervous, but you’ll feel better once you’re on the mats. Win or lose – show up, work hard, and have fun. Oh, and listen to your coach! 😉
