Bjj friday

by Peter Marus

In Fridays in BJJ is an Open mat, where you can go roll or work on techniques (though mostly rolling).   This past Friday made me realize the weight loss I experienced has helped.  I was a little quicker and moving better.  I am down to about 220 lbs, which makes me really happy since that puts me in a lower weight class, especially not one where I am outweighed 30 pounds.  To give perspective I was almost 255 when I started BJJ years ago, so slowly I got down in weight.  All and all I am happy about this revelation.  

Another big realization was: when passing someone playing open guard, stand up and do it on your feet.  Makes life easier than from the knees!!!
