Anderson Silva Seminar

Today I got to train with a legend in the UFC. Anderson "The Spider" Silva taught a seminar at ATOS. He taught a sequence that started from standing to a submission in guard. Here's what I remember.
  1. Distance Management
  2. Clinching to intercepting a punch. (The key is to clinch behind their head at their ears.)
  3. "Wrapping" their arms while in a clinch to throw forward or trip backwards. (The key is to grab their wrist while it's above your arm.)
  4. Dodging their punches behind the elbow then finish with a triangle or armbar.
Guest instructor move: picking up heels then jumping to armbar. 

Vince K. was my training partner. I have known Vince since I was a white belt.

I like to close my eyes when I take pictures.
