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 πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

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.
