Second training session at Marcelo Garcia's gym: Recap

Ok well sorry I didnt post this yesterday but here is a very simple and basic recap of an absolutely AWESOME training session. The teacher yesterday was Henrique Rezende,who has been training under Marcelo since he was 14. He is a really nice guy and holy crap he is so damn good at what he does. I got lucky and was paired up with a purple belt who was actually assisting Henrique in the drills so I could not have had a better training partner. He also taught me some cool little tricks that were not part of the lesson and was surprised how quickly I picked up on the moves, which felt good to hear. The first thing we learned was a take down and after we learned two reversals from the half guard. I don't have the time to go into detail about it now but one of the reversals we ended up taking the back leading to a rear naked choke and the other was a sweep into the other guys half guard. I really am hooked and I was so eager to learn and still am! I cannot wait until tomorrows training session because it will be awesome. Keep all tips and advice coming because I want a need it all plus I appreciate it as well. Thanks!
