Last night was an especially fun experience in class. We learned 2 new techniques and drilled them for about 10 minutes a piece and then rolled consecutively with each person in the class for 5 minute rounds until class was over. Total of about 45 minutes of consecutive rolling. It was probably the most fun I've had since I started and believe me I've been having a ball! I did well and didn't gas in this time but every time I was submitted, it was to a gi choke of some kind. I got tapped 6 times in 1 round by a blue belt training partner and 5 of those were gi chokes. I was only submitted one other time by my instructor and it too was a choke with the gi. I'm sure we will eventually go over more and more techniques and defenses in class but I was hoping you keyboard warriors could point me in the right direction of finding some helpful, noob oriented, protect your neck techniques and drills. Thanks!
