Very very quiet here but I have seen signs of life on IG. Everything ok mate ?

Heya! Yes sorry ghost town in here haha. All going well. I intent at some point to re-visit Every Day Carry however for the past two weeks I’ve been smashing my conditioning and muscular endurance hard.
I’m following a 5-6 day/week program written by the royal Marines and it’s kicking my ass and isn’t completely random. There’s a mixture of work in it and I’ll start posting workouts again I promise haha.

Life is great.
Work is great.
Jiu Jitsu is great.

Hope you’re well too mate

2 hours open mat

Focused on leg pins/rides today.
Very effective at neutralizing and tiring out my training partners. Still got swept and submitted a lot by the higher belts, but they had to use noticably more energy to do anything and gave really good feedback afterwards.
Will definitely keep working on this as it blends in to my style already

Are you noticing any sweeps or submissions that are happening more frequently than others?

I went through a stretch when I was especially vulnerable to scissor sweeps and triangles. Helped me realize a few basic things I could improve when inside the guard and it’s been years since I’ve been caught by either.

Almost the opposite if that makes sense? I’m pretty patient at working on a technique until I get it right. I used to get swept all the time from deep half, so I just kept working on it, stating low and heavy on the hip and protecting my near side arm, now I’m more likely to be swept if I get to aggressive going for a pass or submission.

Today I got elevated and swept a lot from butterfly, but that was because I was intentionally trying to counter the butterfly and pin the legs to the side with varyinf degrees of success haha

Also depends a lot on the ability of my training partners too, to be fair.

I would say I more commonly get swept as a counter when I demonstrate poor technique, as opposed to just being swept it that makes sense?

I’ve definitely found my strength and balance help me stay on top a lot, even with good guys/girls

I missed the submission part of the questions. Yes I am still getting my head around leg entanglements and how to safely escape. I’m getting better at hiding my heel but still struggle to get out of the leg entanglements.

Also a few of the better guys have caught me in reverse triangles when I defend the armbar so there’s that to work on too
