Training report: Guard Subs

This week, we covered guard subs for fundamentals.

Serge taught a knee shield guard pass on Tuesday and on Thursday the advanced group got the freedom to drill and exchange techniques on Thursday night.

I think it is important to give such opportunities to let students brain storm some techniques instead of insisting on turning every class into a mini seminar which I was guilty of doing in my first couple of years when I started coaching.

Also, we almost completed the first two month of the semester.
Nogi Nationals is 7 April so we just got about 4-5 weeks of preparation.

Bare in mind that the Regional GI is on 12 May so it will a quick turn around between the 2 competitions.

Also, we still have some tank tops left for sale $20 as per the picture.
