Creating the Rock Solid Grappling Stance: Solo Cycle

This volume is all devil-in-the-details, anal-retentive, nit-picky work on building rock-solid base both on your feet and on the mat.

We will use the Square Stance as a reference point and discuss how to adapt the drill-set to the Staggered & MMA stances.

We then run it through an 18-Step Solo Drill that will build mat stamina, base out of chaos, and good scramble sense.
Drills Include:
•    The Stance Breakdown: Geta position of the feet, the plane of glass, the concave lumbar position, and the facing T-Rex.
•    Next we discuss how to turn the hips--the motion must start from the knee-dip or you are killing your speed and power.
•    We then scramble the stance through 5 Scramble Rolls--we're not playing bad gymnastics here but building facility with never opening wedges (Underhook opportunities), or leaving  the neck open.
•    We drill how to "stomp into your stance" and not step to recovery.
•    We run 3 Deep Sprawl Drills (no weak shallow-sprawls allowed).
•    We detail how to drive from the getaposition to get up from the sprawl and not step-up or push-up from the sprawl.
•    Next we take it to the mat and detail how to dip the shoulder out of a bridge to a get-up.
•    How to use a half-heist to step-out.
•    Drill a full Hip-Heist to get-up.
•    Use a 50/50 pressure Stand-Up to ease get-up load from underneath.
•    Next we'll knee dip to a Standing tall Sit-Out to reduce snap-backs or neck exposure.
•    We'll follow that up with the Long Sit-Out for those mad scrambles.
Again, this solo drill is 18 moves deep to build that stance. You can use it to educate your stance as a pre-roll warm-up or a sport-specific cardio grinder (run it thru it's paces 5 times up to speed and you'll be huffing and puffing). However you use it, if you stick to the details your stance will be the more solid for it.
This volume (as with all volumes of RAW) comes with a printed syllabus for inclusion in your training notebook.
