Via Black Belt Coach in the video, Mark Hopkins:
Here’s a video of me rolling with one of my blue belts. Alvin is 135 lbs and I am 170 lbs. Every know and then I will get caught by one of my students. It happens even though most instructors won’t admit it. Well, it may not happen if your instructor goes 100% everytime they roll with you. But what is the purpose of going 100% and beating up your students? In my opinion smaller and weaker opponents won’t develop as well if you go 100% on them. anyway, in this situation I get sloppy when going for a ankle lock. I normally don’t go for ankle locks, especially when wearing a gi. Why? The pants sometimes get in the way like they did in this video. But instead of giving up on the ankle I kept trying to get my hand in and that’s what leads up to me getting submitted with a heel hook.
Anyway, keep on training and I hope you learn something from this video.
