    Best drills for beginner grappling?

    I had my first grappling lession/roll session today in a private class and fell in love. I learned standing in base/ground defense, how to fall correctly, low and high mount (and some VERY basic defense to prevent ending up underneath a high mount), guard, and sidemount (I think this is what he called it). We also went over "combing the hair" to defend against ground and pound and the Oompah to escape mount.

    As I said, I loved it. My instructor showed me some basic drills to work on strength to perform the oompah, I was wondering if there were any other drills the bullies or others would like to share for a (very much) beginner to try to get better/stronger. Also any tips to go along with my first lesson would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    You know what, I'd reccomend that you just stick with what your instructor is showing you in class. There is a tendency to try to shorten the learning curve by absorbing information from all sorts of source (books, dvds, you tube videos, web forums) . You end up with information overload, bad information, or stuff that is too advanced to be useful. What you should concentrate on is making attending classes habitual, learning solid fundamentals gradually and staying healthy and uninjured.

    Show up early or stay later with a friend and drill what you previously learned do not spar just drill drill drill.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    The four corners drill is handy for teaching beginner's positional awareness. Ask your instructor to show it to you when you get a chance.

    Also, the term is "upa", rather than "oompah".

    I've got a bunch of videos of drills I have my students do for understanding hip movement and basic positioning drills. I would show you but they are super secret and I'd have to kill you after you've seen them.

    I'd like to see those myself. I seem to recall you mentioning them recently on another thread.
