Steve72, I would consider BJJ Vision Quest 2007 only:
1. I truly am ready to be stationary for a while and
2. 2007 has less than 2 months left.
And Jimmy, I am working on finding ways to make money through BJJ. I've been somewhat successful, but not in a way that will support me in the manner to which I've become accustomed (which is to say, in a manner that affords me all the flip flops, beef jerky, and diet peach Snapple iced tea I can drink).
Not much going on. We worked on a takedown tonight called the leg whip, and we decided that the most important part of it is that when you remove your opponent's hand from your shoulder (s/he will probably be using it for balance because you will have his/her leg off the ground), you have to say, "Get off me!" or "No means no!" It certainly seemed important, if only because it had us cracking up. But I'm convinced that my technique was worse when I forgot to say it.
Johnny and I were rolling a little, and he complained that he had to pass my half guard by getting into my full guard and passing that. My full guard sucks. Not that Johnny can't do whatever he damn well pleases when rolling with me, but I can defend a little better from the half guard. It's kind of this weird clamp I have. I just need to learn what to do with it. And work on my full guard. I keep trying to recompose full guard on the bottom, but when I do, it gets passed pretty quickly. Dammit! Well, something to work on tomorrow.
