First class of the new year! Today Diego 2 taught and I rolled with Mike Guadamuz, who is a fierce Muay Thai fighter and a BJJ Blue Belt from Ralph Gracie. He's also tremendously strong and one time nearly got out from Side Control just by sitting up. Anyhow, it was a rough but good class. Felt like an old man, which I am, compared to these kids. We did mostly basics again, Armbar from Guard and then drilled from various positions: Back Control, Side Control, Full Mount. I pretty much got submitted all over the place, but I did manage to get him in an Ezekiel from Mount! I'll take it! Was very good but very exhausting. But here's to a new year.
