- groundwork mobility cycle X2 as warmup
- hizaguruma from the deashi bump
- newaza randori. I got Rob twice in various positional things and he ran me to a draw the third time. Good sweaty exertional judo.
- drilled legs-over escape from jujigatame. Rob brought up the point that omoplata might be a threat if you do legs-over from there. In judo you don't have to worry about that but it is something to think about.
- switched to aiki for a cooldown. repped owaza #1-4 many times into a crashpad and then did a handful of reps of owaza 5-10.
