Beginner Class Recap

In tonight's beginners class we started out with some self defense warm ups, where we got to take out some frustrations with up kicks. The technique we focused on today was a sweep from the Open Guard.

Nina is standing in Jenifer's Open Guard

To set up the sweep, Jen switches her grip. She passes Nina's right sleeve to her right hand and grapes Nina's ankle with her left.

To sweep, Jen hooks her right foot behind Nina's left foot (The lower the better), and pushes Nina backwards with her left foot.

Jen keeps control of Nina's sleeve and uses Nina's momentum to bring herself on top

Once she comes on top Jen secures the half guard
