Yeah, it's been fundamentals so far. Starting from takedowns into side control, knee on belly, wrist control from mount, etc....He has spent a lot of time talking and showing these things and explaining why. And he also teaches about the history of the art and what it's about. Then he turns the kids loose and allows them to work on it for a bit. He's really a great teacher. I talked with the main teacher (the guy I used to train with) and I was telling him how much I liked the kids' teacher and he told me that their teacher was the only one he would allow to teach his kid besides him. Pretty big words...

I've been around the whole time. I do a lot of reading and post here and there. I "try" not to get into the bandwagon and nuthugger threads and it seems like many of the threads end up there nowadays....so I lay low for the most part. But I'm still here.
