Choked Out

Yesterday we were working on an escape where your opponent has the grips in for the lapel choke. The escape is to grab their forearm, behind their bicep, slip out, and turn into them. We were doing a live drill where my partner had my back and his grips in. I was working my escape and as I was about to slip out and turn...

I woke up to him at my legs...

My first question was:

"Where am I?"

"What was happening before this?"

"I'm in BJJ? Is this a dream?"

My partner told me that I went to "sleep" for about 4 seconds. This is the first time I have chocked out. I have had tunnel vision before but never went unconscious like this.

Wow... it feels weird...

Things I Need To Work On

Yesterday was my first time rolling with Professor Dominic. I could tell he was going easy on me. He kicked my ass twice and after the roll he said, "Good hip movement though."

I got caught in a Triangle and Armbar while trying to escape from guard. So I need to work on the following:
  1. Triangle Escapes
  2. Armbar Escapes
