    Great compliment to the first episode. I actually liked it a little more than the first episode

    Only thing I didn't love was the rolling session seemed really short compared to most of the other episodes. Was it even 5 minutes?

    Yeah, it did seem short. His roll with Glover, for instance, seemed much longer.

    Definitely!

    I enjoyed it though. One thing I thought was really cool was Drysdale using the Americana from bottom side to reverse his way back to the top. I remember seeing that on a super old Karo Parisyan dvd. I Didn't think that was something I'd ever see someone go for.

    Awesome to see Drysdale administer a beat-down. Jake keeps getting better and better, but it is never enough.

    That was my go-to escape for the longest time. I'm glad I finally learned some other side control escapes since then...lol. But I still pepper that one in here and there just to catch guys off guard. If I don't get the sweep I can at least get a knee in and get back to guard...or some guys just tap right away because they are not used to an americana coming on quick from that position. That and the upa armbar from under side control are my "play around" moves when I'm not feeling in too much danger and want to hit something cool. I'm not brave enough to try them on the beastly partners.

    That sneaky pass to mount at 51:20 or so...I've always wanted to get that but never remember to try it in the moment.

    There's something mesmerizing about the way these high level black belts school Jake while going at half speed. That said Jake threw up a nice gogo there that looked like it caught Drysdale offguard
