Nice they did look tired.

I think this group just didn't want to do throws. They were yellow (high blue) belts coming in fresh and the two guys just got done with a nearly two hour work out. We've had test where guys were being slammed left and right.

I saw a good makikomi counter attempt by the larger guy...
Which throws do you teach them to counter with a makikomi technique? A coach of mine advised me to work on that.
