    I will preface this message by saying I'm horrible with names, especially ones that aren't in the language I speak.

    The gripfighting has made a pretty big difference. The mindset of "can't touch this" has helped, and the aggressive grip fighting scares most of my sparring partners, because it looks like I know what I'm doing. They usually pull guard, but it's a pretty cool feeling to make them pull guard just from grip fighting.

    I've been drilling the elbow across into my subconcious, and I have success with the axe chopping takedown. The axe chopper is just golden.

    Your talking about kouchigake. Yes good grip fighting will make you more dangerous but to pull guard for it seems pretty weak, lol. No one else is doing anything with the techniques I am ashamed :(

    If it makes you feel better, all my tai-otoshi's have been leading straight into brabos lately!

    I separated my shoulder that Monday in class so I haven't had a chance to use much of what we went over other than the grip fighting.

    Dam Justin sorry to hear that. Did you get a chance to edit the video I would live to see it? MBD is a lot funnier on the net than in person.

    Now, see, I'd like to think I'm funny in person too. It's just that on the mat, MBG is business. Especially when he's getting his learn on.

    Next time I won't hold back on my comedy.

    Today I worked the footsweeps you showed us during the randori portion of no-gi class. It was not pretty, but that simply proves that I need to work on them more.

    In no-gi, is the over/under greco clinch an acceptable grip for proper entry to a footsweep? Alternatively, what is the best grip to set up footsweeps in no-gi?

    jnp if you start owning footsweeps I don't think I will stand up with you anymore.

    That clinch you can do an okuri ashi harai, sasae tsuri komi ashi and a kouchigari
    Okuri is when you sweep the feet together
    Sasae is when you block the foot and roll them over
    Kouchi is when you go between the legs and sweep the foot.


    Mun great work with the harai
