Helpful Tip for the TGU
As mentioned in an earlier post, MRKC Jeff O'Connor recently came to Condition and taught an Advanced Basics workshops covering the swing and Get-up in-depth. The piece of information I came away with that was the most beneficial is the following: I never knew you could pivot on the heel of the planted foot. Duh! It only makes sense because you want your toes and your knee pointing in the same direction. I was trying to come out into the bridge on the way down with my foot planted when I needed to pivot on my heel. It makes a HUGE difference. You may already be doing that, but if not it really helps.
