I helped a girl and I liked it

One of the girls in our group is really fun to roll with because I can usually dominate her :). Okay, what I mean is–from side guard I can hop over her legs into full mount because they’re generally very flat, and I can actually work moves on her. I feel somewhat advanced when I roll with her ๐Ÿ™‚

But today things finally clicked and I had that AHA moment and when we finished sparring I showed her about putting her knees up high to block my legs, and showed her a sweep from under full mount that someone else had shown me earlier.

I’m a helper! Woo hoo! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also sparred with “pink gi girl” today. I had sparred with her once before about 2 months ago. She has an adamantium core, I swear. She completely dominated me when we first sparred. This time I actually scored moves against her and it actually felt a bit more evenly matched. She’s still MUCH better than me, but I could tell my improvement, which was really exciting.

  1. Fabio is always telling us that it actually works to our advantage to help our teammates get better. As they progress, they challenge us more and force us to adapt and grow ourselves. Great job! ๐Ÿ™‚
