    Lizard Walk

    In my last BJJ class we did something called the "Lizard Walk".
    I totally don't get what I am supposed to be doing (elbows down, legs based.....what???).
    Does anyone know where I can see photos with an explanation of what body parts do what motion?

    Ok, this is the movement where you start with one arm forward, one back and the opposite legs forward and back? If so then I believe the idea is start with your forward arm bent like you're down in press up position and then as you straighten your arm, you move forward a step and then bend the other arm to go back down into pressup position.

    Re-reading that, my explanation wasn't very clear. Hopefully someone will have pictures or a video?

    Is this for real? Why would you want to walk like a lizard?

    It's just for exercise, we don't have secret animal style kata or anything.

    It's an exercise/drill mate. It's not Gecko style BJJ or anything like that :)
