OK, I come into the office this morning and I see a new instructional video from Oli Geddes.
I watch it and it’s pretty good – he’s using the sitting / hook guard thing that I have been using lately, but turning it into overhook X guard / Lagarto guard, and then going for a footlock. I often get stuck trying to sweep from there so I decide to try it next time I train.
Then I checked out facebook to see Oli had shared a link to Graciemag, where he got great coverage of his fights from the Toronoto open. He got beaten by a guy in the weight finals, then beat him in the open weight.
So I watch the match, and he busts out the exact move I’d just seen him instructionalising. Superb.
Here’s the instructional:
