Work Smarter Not Harder

Wrestled with one of the newer (but enthusiastic) guys and had several nice rolls with him. He's learned the value of rolling at 50% so he can learn some technique, rather than going all out and trying to power through things.

While cooling down at the end of class I learned a couple things from watching.

* when escaping a cross body, focus more on the shrimp onto side than shoving the knee in. The space made by shrimping should provide plenty of space for knee
* when passing guard, try placing farthest knee across their thigh and turning hips to slide into side control
* position before submission

Had a short chat with coach, he said I've improved a lot and he thinks I'll be good once I get my subs down. I need to look at it from a glass half full perspective, seeing how far I've came rather than how far I still need to go.
