We did positional sparring for most of the class tonight. The coach wanted the ones with weaker guards to have an opportunity to work on preventing specific passes. It was a great opportunity to work from my back, since I normally am a top player. I also got to practice my back attack stuff during one of the freestyle matches, which was nice. The guy I was working with is an excellent blue belt grappler, who is very good at getting out of bad spots, which he eventually did in this case as well. However, the fact that I stayed on his back for that long, and nearly sunk in the choke, is a sign that perhaps I don’t completely suck at jiu jitsu.
