    It seems a lot of practice rolling videos up here are from white belts. I thought I'd throw up a blue belt video from class. All critiques welcome. I have the shaved head.

    If someone could embed that would be cool...

    You could have taken his back several times in the first minute or so. You had his right arm but did not do anything with it (pin it to the ground or pull it across his body)

    guy with the brown hair needs to work on his guard passing. controlling the legs, dropping his hips. looks like he almost passed your guard. had he rotated his hips in and stayed tight on your hip then he may have passed. he also needs to stay off his back in half-guard.

    i feel like you could have been heavier on top. flattened him out, and maintained a tight side control before going to mount. (3 points!) also, what were you going for when you rolled him at 3:40?

    Yes, I could have tried for the back take early...

    After North/South, I could have secured a tighter side mount, in competition I would have.

    At 3:40 it's a roll-under from Saulo's DVD. I just didn't keep the tight grips after the roll like I should have. I let him spin through too easily.

    The guy with hair was begging to be loop choked for the first couple minutes

    Cool.

    From what I can see:

    The bad
    -Both of your guards need some work. Yours is better though. Your partner is way too flat in his guard. And the only he time he passed your guard you turned the wrong way. You need to keep him in front of you especially if you like to play rubber guard.

    -Guard passing, I dont know if you guys were just going light or what but it didn't even look like you made an attempt. It looks like the only reason you passed his half guard is he opened his leg and tried to buck you off. You had no posture in his guard.

    The good
    -You did a good job in the scrambles and you attacked quickly to everything he did. Seems to me that you're doing more than just reacting.

    -Nice transition from NS to mount to side control to back.

    -Nice controlled, pace but you're blue belts I wouldn't expect you guys to be spazzing :)
