Saturday's noon class was very laid back. I had the students drill some basic half guard stuff to warm up, then we did a guard recovery drill from butterfly half.
I rolled with each of the students on the ground - Chrissy, MikeByrd, Brian Maltby, Big Jus, and Russ "Meat Blanket" Helm, one of our brown belts. After 5 six-minute rounds, we started on the feet for another set of rounds.
Chrissy also got a bunch of good photos for the U.S. Grappling rules (illegal techniques and point scoring). These pics will be used to illustrate the written rules on our site, something no other major tournament organizations do.
