Twenty Plus On The Mat Practicing Takedowns Followed By BJJ

Great training session last night – the start of a new era. A privilege to be coached by Jon Purssey, former Commonwealth and British Judo champion. After ten months of Judo for BJJ, everyone is starting to look really good on their feet – for those that have been consistent, the hard work is paying off.

Our new training structure has received positive feedback – our drilling concept is helping people to define their routes.

Jon and I have agreed today that last night’s session was the best so far – with intensity and realism – we’re excited about the team’s progress. The BJJ session revisited some of our previously drilled techniques – everyone picking up our guard to back take to rear naked choke sequence very well.

The evening ended with a long sparring session with all matches on the timer, started from the feet.
