Slo mo scissor sweep video

Was playing around last night with the slo mo feature on one of my student's smart phones and we filmed the three techniques we have trained in class this week; namely the regular scissor sweep, an option when the person defends the sweep and an arm bar option from the scissor sweep attack.

I think the slo mo vids are a great teaching tool you can give to your students, so they can see where they need to be in relation to their opponent, as important things can be missed when teaching in normal speed, even when things are broken down into stages.

Huge congrats to two of my London Fight Factory black belt buddies Enrique Villasenor and Tiago Valente, as they open the doors to their new gym on Monday June 25th...

Training tonight...

It's time once again to stop making excuses not to train, give up the fight with the couch/TV/social media and get down onto the mats at Checkmat Wimbledon, where you can interact with real human people and get to twist them up at the same time. What's not to love?

The Surrey Open looms on the horizon in August, so it's all hands to the deck as we work as a team and get those that are competing ready for action....

GCP Episode 296 - Kristian Woodmansee

Last night's class...

Had a very good turnout last night in spite of the England match being on the TV, sometimes it's hard to compete against things like the National Game, but last night was a very pleasant surprise indeed.

In addition to a good turn out, we had the pleasure of a purple belt by the name of Ryan, all the way from Oz, who was over in the UK visiting one of my students, who used to live out there and train with Ryan back in the day.

Lots of hard work and sweat last night as per usual, as we get ready for the Surrey Open, competition we haven't attended before, so I am looking forward to this event and seeing my lads and ladies do battle the mats...
