Coach Baret Yoshida:
Hey guys. I know the gym’s been closed. Here are a few drills you can do by yourself with just a gi top. This next drill is my favorite one. It’s the spider to arm bar to triangle drill. Start off this drill keeping tension on the sleeves like so. And what I’m going to do here is I’m going to take a foot out, lasso around. I’m going to step on the collar, bring the leg over like in arm bar, pull in the sleeves together. And then from here, I’m going to pull the sleeve outwards, bring my knee in, and my leg’s going to shoot through here like I’m going to do a triangle. I’m going to lock it all the way tight here. From here, I wrap the sleeve around my knee, make some tension. That way I can get my other foot back on the sleeve to push it back up. And then we can start back to the beginning.

So you lasso around, step on the collar, pull the sleeves together, and we bring the leg over like in arm bar. From here, I’m going to push the collar. My leg’s going to come through, lock my triangle nice and deep. And to get tension here, I wrap the sleeve around my knee. Make some space so I can get my heel back on that sleeve. I can match the feet off and we can start from the beginning.

Lasso on the collar, arm bar, leg inside here, triangle, wrap around the knee, step, step, and start from the beginning.

So guys, keep training. We’ll be back to the gym soon. And thank you for all the support.
