**** Nogi worm guard sweep from straight foot lock trap *****

Really easy adaptation from the famous worm guard but in this case is nogi. Requires really good hips mobility and flexibilty so if you are allready a guard player you will be allright.

Good luck and let me know what u guys think about this position!


[08/07/14]   Hey, I'll be there at 6:09. Senior belt start warmups.

[08/05/14]   Nogi class today 6-7pm. If you think you are the nogi badass you def should stop by. Osssssa

This is a good one!

***** Mind Controled Takedown *****

Score two points without touching your opponent or you can just end the match depending how much energy you use. Make sure you keep one eye in your mana bar so you dont run out when you need.
