Matt Thornton @ SBG Toronto (Feb 5, 6 & 7)

February 8, 2010 Posted by School of Thought

What a great start to 2010 for TPTM/SBG Toronto!

Everyone had a solid workout, got in lots of rolling, and made immediate improvements to their game while Matt Thornton (SBGi President & BJJ Black Belt) led us through a packed weekend of BJJ focusing on positional posture. Friday night began with open rolling, a look at half guard postures followed by Q & A. More open rolling on Saturday, where we then worked proper posture and hand fighting from inside the closed guard, then on to the same for butterfly guard. Sunday kicked off with more open rolling, some crushing from cross-sides & 10/2 positions, followed by more rolling and Q & A.

Many thanks to all who could attend, especially those who made the drive from the St.Catharines & Kingston. Stay tuned for more info on future training opportunities again this year with Matt, BJJ Phenom John Kavanagh, as well as our good friends Mike & Rebecca Sweeney.
