Yesterday's trip to Marc's

It was a long day but a fun one.

Dave picked us up at 6am and we were on our way to London. Dave's new Sat Nav got a major road testing and, apart from telling us we were driving in a field near Leeds, passed with flying colours.

The class at Marc's was as busy as ours with 2 purples, about 12 blues and 8 whites on the mat. We ran through an excellent group of techniques from the guard linking armbars, triangles and omoplata.

The sparring was good and I got to roll with 2 purple belts and 2 blues. For everyone who wants to know what Tyrone will be like in 5 years you need to roll with Adam Edwards - he does all the crazy, experimental, bendy BJJ that Ty does but with a man's strength behind it.

Following the training Dave and Marc did some photos for a project Marc is working on and Neil, Ty and myself chilled out.

Next time Dave is going to Marc's try and get yourself there.
