So far so good this week! I’ve been going to class, doing warm ups, and some drills. Thankfully this week we are drilling turtle attacks so no takedowns.
Really been hitting this clock choke to bow and arrow transition – it’s pretty sweet. If attacking turtle from their right side:
If they feel this coming and try to roll onto their back – rolling into you (if they roll the other way gives you their back):
You can also bounce back and forth if they keep rolling. Eventually they’ll mess up.
I was evaluated by a sports doctor/chiro yesterday. I asked for a head to toe eval so I could know what I need to work on for injury prevention. Results:
Overall in really good condition. Nerves, muscles, joints – all excellent.
Normal ROM in upper body. Extremely hypermobile from the waist down.
Textbook deep squat form.
Strengthen traps and rhomboids to correct forward shoulder rotation.
My lower abdominals and glutes are too weak so my low back is over compensating, which will eventually lead to back injury.
So synopsis is that I’m adding to my weight routine:
Hanging Leg Raises
As far as my rib goes – I was told the rule of thumb is: “if it hurts, don’t do it”. I told the doc I hope to be back to 100 percent by the end of the month and he thinks I can totally do that.
My goal is to hit up NAGA in Memphis on June 9th. That gives me enough time to heal up and get some good training in. Gonna kick some butt!
