Lil Grapplers Self Defense Talk  (6-8 min)

Important for our smallest students to start to understand how to work co-cooperatively with their friends in training Jiu-Jitsu.

Bear Hug Overhook  F.ollow L.isten  (9-14 min)

Make sure when mirroring this to be animated.    The balance part of this is important so that they are prepped not to fall on their partner.  Safety Safety.

Muscle:::Step Left:::Step Right:::Arm:::Push

Bear Hug Overhook  O.n the instructor (15 -20 min)

Suspense line.....they could do this in the air.  Walking behind them asking them "who am I going to grab next?".   Also for mat management make sure they students know that they get a turn if they are "at the attention stance".  Skip over the student if they do not show good discipline,  however at some point they must get a turn.

Bear Hug Over The Arms --- W.ith a partner (21 -26 min)

On command with a partner.  Special safety as they do the last move.  Make sure to warn before they do the last move SLLLLOOOOOWWWWLY!

Suggested ending Breakfall Pad Game(26-30 min)

Do not use one pad per partner, there is a danger of them hitting their heads together.  Make sure you have two pads with at least 6 feet between them.  You say fall, make sure to look for improper technique.  You may even find it useful to call out the students who are doing a great job.
