Jason and I were talking just last night about this video, in which Ryron discusses trading roles in randori so that you get experience in playful survival grappling as well as submission grappling. One of the things that I especially liked was how his explanation on this video mirrors exactly what I was saying on one of my first blog posts years ago (not that I'm claiming to be years ahead of the Gracies or anything... but... ;-)
I like the coin. It's a cool piece of Gracie paraphernalia, but if you would like to do the same thing with any coin - flip a coin and if it comes up heads, you're in thinking mode and if it comes up tails then you're in butthole mode.
