    So what concepts were covered and what drills did y'all work on?

    I am always looking for new material (drills) to keep things interesting.

    I just went over common mistakes to because they're counter intuitive. How to breakdown mistakes in throws without having another person watch.

    1. If you roll back on your heels you probably made about 4 other mistakes.
    2. Proper torquing into turning throws
    3. Proper hand placement and understanding about control points on the body.
    4. When to bail out on a throw.
    And then we managed to get to the straight inside ankle lock.

    Good stuff, thanks for that.

    When do you personally bail out on a throw? Where is your "this **** isn't working, time to move on" point?

    Completely dependent upon the throw. Like submissions throws have a flow sequence.

    Thanks Sifu Mike, Jonathon and Sensei for a great seminar.

    You covered a lot of material in a short amount of time without making us feeling rushed. I particularly liked that bail-out throw and the ankle lock. Sometimes it's easy to focus on the fancy stuff and forget that some of us survive on the second or third choice and it's the bail-out that can save us.

    Take care guys.
