Tonight, there were a lot more people than usual, so rather than everyone sparring, we did match of the night again. That’s where the coach picks two volunteers to grapple, and another three to play the ref and two judges. It’s a way to familiarize everyone with the scoring system and rules of a BJJ match. I only watched the matches tonight, but I’m sure I’ll be picked sooner or later. Until then, I’m trying to study as much technique and theory in between classes as I can comfortably absorb (by reading books and watching videos), so that I will have a bunch of new things to try in future classes.
