Hey thanks. The guy I was sparring with is usually pretty tough about things, but I will try not to CRAAAANNNKKK on it right away and just ease into the lock next time.

I'll try to steer clear of that then, I really don't want to piss people off or break my own arm, heh. Thank you.

You seem to be pretty athletic, I would say for 6 classes or even 6 weeks its was pretty good...
Dont slam your partners though, I think you got potential...
6 weeks at one class a week, I'll stay away from slams for sure after the responses in this thread : ) --Thank you for the compliments, much appreciated!!

2.) Should I just focus on breaking out of it for the most part?
3.) I'll break that habit real quick!
4.) Yeah, as I was watching I noticed that it seemed the grapevine was the reason he got into my half guard.
6.) I'll try to stay out of them
Thank you for the helpful critiques everyone, I'll try putting it to work and check back in with another video in a couple weeks.
