Pendulum sweep! Armbar! High lock guard!

Fifth time to see the pendulum but this time a slightly different setup. Finally the last piece clicked into place. Pulled it off in sparring with a fully resisting male opponent not 5 minutes later.

Fifty-fifth time to see armbar as a response to the forearm choke inside your guard. Finally the last piece clicked into place. Pulled something much like it off in sparring with a fully resisting male opponent about 10 min later.

High lock guard-- nope, I wish. But it IS the first time I tried it in drilling and it worked. So there's hope yet.

AND... I pulled off a slick ankle lock during sparring with a fully resisting male opponent.. and did it legally (the leg crossing the hip was legal) and not rolling to the inside. Finished it bellydown.

Alleluia.
