GJ Outside vs. Inside

Inside versus outsideMy simple thoughts on "outside" and "inside". The outside (line) region is the two areas lateral to your partner's shoulders. Inside region is the area medial to your partner's shoulders. Outside control is hands controlling from the outside region and inside control is hands controlling from the inside region. Outside control is slipping to body hook/head hook, a thai side clinch, whizzer position, or side mount while inside control is the straight blast, plum position, double underhook position, or full mount.

Only a few of us at practice today...so we had a nice light workout.

Warm-up: 2 min rounds of the prison riot drill, jump squat sprawl pyramid push-ups to 5 then pummeling, shadowboxing, side rolls using the wall followed by forward rolls.

Thai pads: 2 min rounds x 2 using the "punch mitts"

6 rounds of the "Pinnochio Stance" lead hand is extended while rear hand cover in order to clinch head. Partner throws punches and clinch off this position.

Everyone did tag-team knee play!

Arm bar vs. taking the back set-up:

Depending on how deeply the arm is secured control can be inside or outside. Now we can transition from one region of control to the other, alternating between the arm bar and taking the back. A flower sweep can be added for kicks. Thus after getting the grip, we can keep going in that direction to take the back, grabbing the opposite lat and opening the guard. The cross hand arm can be used to slice under the same side thigh and be used to lift for the sweep. Alternatively, after securing the grip, we can move in the opposite direction and secure the arm bar or if opponent resists we can go back to the sweep.
