if yes, what is the training like?
i.e. drill, free sparring, positional sparring, etc.
Sort of. I run pretty intense drilling sessions that incorporate high speed drilling of moves with no resistance and lot of 100% positional sparring focusing mostly on competition (i.e. lots of open and half guard). It's mostly competitors that attend and the pace is designed to get you in shape for competition. Our regular classes are fairly high paced with lots of reps though of course you work on whatever the lesson of the day is rather than whatever you want. We're a very sport oriented school.
All the competitors train two times a day usually the classes MG teaches. We do have a specific class on Monday nights which is Purple, Brown, Black only and usually has all the heavy hitters and good visitors come thru. As far as drilling everyone does that before or after class on their own time if they like that kind of regime. Competition training is just alot of sparring
Yes both for Grappling competition and MMA competition. Both are highly focused and positional oriented with 100% sparring mixed in with some flowing and trouble shooting.
Yup. We do high speed drills, positional sparring, full sparring. High intensity for the duration of the classes. I think it's pretty much the same format for most gyms.
Friday night for 2 hours, it's a lot of conditioning and then positional sparring.
one person will be in the middle of a circle of everyone else, and will for example get into spider guard with another person on top. they then spar until the bottom person sweeps or the top person passes. if the bottom person sweeps, he stays in the middle and the next top player rotates in. if he gets passed, then the passer now starts on bottom with spider guard and so on. we'll do 10 minute rounds of this
