Class Log: Jan. 19 -- Kata Guruma, Half-Guard Passes


Excellent work on the mats last night! Instructor Scott covered the Kata Guruma (shoulder wheel) and several half-guard passes. Below is one of the variations covered of the throw. Remember with half-guard passes, control the head by applying weight with your shoulder on your opponent's jaw. Reverse the direction of your knee if your foot gets trapped. The knee slide is also an effective way to pass.

We'll review these again in the near future, but, in the meantime, work them into your game plan at open mat.

See you all on the mat -- this Thursday!
