Leo’s first seminar was three hours long with a lot of attention given to detail – technical demonstrations were followed by practice and questions and answers. The first part of the seminar featured a strong mount defence and we were then taught how to attack the foot as a follow-up, securing the knee and forcing the opponent to roll.
Leo’s Triangle defence was broken down and built back up again, stage by stage until the team had a firm grasp of the concepts.
The mount is a particularly difficult position to escape from if the person mounted has a strong understanding of how to secure the position and submit their opponent. Leo offered several escapes based on a number of possible mount attacks – lots has been gleaned and we now have our opportunity to practice during our weekly training sessions.
Leo is scheduled to do another defend and escape seminar in three months time – with Side Control escapes featuring strongly.
