practice went okay today. i’ve got a cold that has to mess with my conditioning and my knee is still a little tender. still went hard and got it done though. drilled a lot today, on the feet going light and then top/bottom going 100% i’m really starting to like short sits and then getting hand control and hip heisting out, or even standing up if i have to, its a good way to create motion on the bottom. been working with some over collar shrug stuff too. i like controlling both sides of the tie, but not very many people let you control both sides, they try to free wrists and fight inside, so if someone takes away my inside collar, i worked on an over collar shrug to a pick and then a low level, throw by type of attack.
wrestled a match in practice today. took my kid down with an over collar shrug to pick, cut him, took him down with a double leg, pinned him in a half. started back up, took him down with another over collar shrug to pick. time ran out. i went down, short sit and hip heisted out and went right back to looking for takedowns. hit a decent low single, cut him, hit a good double leg, good high c, time ran out, he went down, i turned him again with legs in, power halfed and cross faced, let him up, he shot in, i whizzered hard and stuck him again just by keeping my whizzer and hipping into him until i got him on his back. had to do an overtime period, i hit a sweet head snap into a double leg with a trip finish. kid’s not great but he’s not horrible either, he’s wrestling varsity at 126 but the weight cut regulations made him go 132 for a few weeks so he weighed about 132 and i weighed about 138 when we wrestled.
tomorrow should be an easy practice, drilling, getting weight off, maybe a live match or two. then we duel carbon on thursday.
