MERRY CHRISTMAS! With the Christmas holiday being this week, the Academy will be closed for ALL classes Friday-Sunday (December 24-26) and we will only be having Adults Open Mat at 12:00pm on Monday, December 27th.
Although it’s a short week, we’ve still got work to do! Our Lesson Plans for this week cover both the offensive and defensive aspects of opening the Closed Guard – how to do it, and also how to react if your opponent attempts to stand and do it to you!

From here, Wednesday and Thursday will focus on the Catucada sweep. Utilizing this technique when our opponent stands allows us to attack with several different options. We’ll be covering sweeps to mount, back-takes, kneebars and more!

We’re still going to be able to have our Competition Class on Wednesday at 7:30, and this week it’s No-Gi! We’ve got a long weekend ahead, so let’s make sure we earn that extra time off!
