How to use open mat

The numbers in the open mat sessions have dipped a little and I think it may be partly due to people not using the sessions as productively as they could. When there is no instruction and you are pretty much left to your own devices a lot of people just fall into sparring.

This is the perfect time just to grab someone and try that new technique you have been thinking about or maybe try to perfect a part of your game that has been lacking a little.

If you combine the open mat sessions with the ideas of drilling it can make for some very productive training.
