Tonight went much better than Tuesday. For the first hour, we did something rather unusual. We simply were allowed to ask questions. I don’t believe I was shown a single “technique” in that time. However, I did gain some key insights about how to improve my bottom game. During the sparring class, I tried to put the new concepts into practice. My success in guard retention seemed dramatically better. It’s nights like this that make me feel like I’m not wasting my time trying to learn this stuff.
