During the weekend 14-15 of July, Choke Århus hosted a two-day Master Class with our instructor Joao Pedro Santos. There were almost eight hours of training with a lot of drills and plenty of sparring so everyone got a chance to roll with each other so they could put their new techniques to practice.
On Saturday the class focused on self-defense and nogi grappling. JP taught a sequence of moves involving defenses against a standing opponent, as well as counter attacks with kicks, punches and footlocks. The grappling part had a takedown followed by two half guard passes and one sneaky armlock submission.
At the end of the day, JP awarded stripes to the two men in charge of running our hub in Jylland. Alexander Rasmussen received two, Lasse Bager got his first. Congrats!
