    Grappling reminders

    I keep getting frustrated, because I go to my rolling sessions and immediately afterwards I get one of those really obvious epiphanies, which aren't really epiphanies because I've had them before (just after a rolling session, of course). What I need is a list of things to remember so that I can pin it to my bedroom door and look it over before I go to the jits. I've had two revelations today, and I'd love to add more from you guys:

    1) It's not competition night, dumbass
    2) Stop spazzing out and do something productive

    1) Tap when the heel hook is locked , no need to fight it once they are already torquing it.
    2) Tuck in your chin when going for leg takedowns.

    i suck at takedowns, but i recall an instructor say something in the line of "when striking, keep your chin down. when just doing grappling and going for a takedown, keep your head straight"

    what to wrestlers do when shooting for leg takedowns?

    Can't say I agree. I've always been taught that keeping your head UP is the way to avoid guillotines when shooting for a double, and it's worked for me (as long as I keep good posture, of course). Sounds counterintuitive, I know, but there it is.

    When you keep your head up its really hard to get guillotined too. When I shoot for doubles and forget to do any of those things I get caught in a guillotine. Most of the time I get out though... Also , gotta remember to not let them pull guard when they catch you in the guillotine.

    If someone throws a guillotine into my takedown, I usually just step outside and that ends that.
