The guards are started to open up last week at the academy. As the basics of straight armbar, omoplata and triangle are understood we ventured into opening up the guards and attacking our opponent. The first series that we explored was opening the guard into an overhook. The first three options given were choke to armbar to omoplata. What sounded complicated at first was clearly explained and everybody was able to execute the moves. Some people started to explore more options from the position. If you plan on stopping by this week get ready for takedowns. Cody is teaching and starting out with a double leg takedowns. Bring extra water it is going to be a workout.
