BJJ-Cross Collar choke

Tonight was the first night our team choke hazard was back in uniforms.  Lets just say, we lived up to the name team choke hazard.

Warmups-

We started with a different variation of warmup.  The teacher taught balance and base while we were transitioning and passing guard.  It was simple but got the bodies warm.

Lesson:

After warmups we learned how to do a cross collar choke.  Holy crap, this move is very effective.  I was almost choked out multiple times.  We were then taught a defense and a counter defense.  The neat thing about the choke were the posistion of the hands and the wiper blades way of moving your legs.  After the lesson we played a game where we rolled with each other for 2 minutes with one hand and no hands.  It was a blast!

The roll:

I took it a little easy tonight.  I wanted to practice from the bottom position by shrimping a lot.  I also wanted to try a butterfly guard.  It was difficult and I got rolled but it was fun.
