Actually it is the 64th day….. and it’s time to evaluate what I have accomplished in this time period.
Well, I have continued to do Jiu-Jitsu everyday whether in class or own my own. My rule of practicing a minimum of 30 techniques per day has not changed. At times I do more than that (other times the bare minimum) but I don’t count past 30. Therefore my official number of repetitions is 1,920.
How does this translate to my training in class?
I am able to achieve a butterfly sweep at least once or twice every practice. Usually after I do it, my rolling partner will become wary of it and try to avoid it at all costs. My agility has increased and I am able to obtain and hold dominant positions with greater ease. My ability to receive and implement instruction continues to improve. I have become more active when mounted and I am very active in my guard, although this has led to my guard being passed more frequently since I am always attempting new things.
As far as my ability to submit people, my rear naked choke technique has grown by leaps and bounds as I have been able to obtain the choke at a greater rate and have learned how to lock in the choke with one arm. My ability to pull off the triangle has decreased and everytime I try to lock it in my opponent passes my guard. I believe it is because I have stopped trying to control the wrists of my opponent before locking it in, but I will work on it.
As far as the blog is concerned I have had a record of 145 visitors in one day and average around 70 per day. So I thank everyone who visits and adds to the discussions. Knowing that you guys are watching my progress keeps me motivated.
For the next 30 days I want to continue working on gaining positional dominance and I want to add knee on belly as a part of my game…..
