“The Hills” Actor Spencer Pratt Is A Jiu-Jitsu Beast
There aren’t many serious douchebags who ever turn things around. It’s worth noting so that you can wait pointlessly for every other asshole you know to someday be your best friend.
Spencer Pratt spent most of the previous decade as the butt of many deserved jokes. Whether or not he was playing the part of the toe-head tool for fame beyond The Hills, his part was that of a guy you wanted to punch ever so badly in the face. He married that Barbie Doll chick and ebbed slowly out of reality life by doing successively lower rated shows until poof. Gone. His last appearance on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here left everybody ridiculing his claims about training toward a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu. Only, he actually was.
Completely on the stealth this insane moron became skilled in Jiu-Jitsu, such that this past weekend he won the Gold Medal at the Jiu-Jitsu Federation’s Abu Dhabi Grand Slam tournament at the Los Angeles Convention Center. He’s in the Purple Belt category. I don’t know what means in terms of elite level martial arts performances, but let’s just say it’s far more than I accomplished over the Labor Day weekend.
Pratt also returned to USC where he finished up his last two years of college to earn his degree. He’s drastically limited his public appearances and his Snapchats are primarily self-aware satires on how boring his life is. No shots of his wife’s ginormous tits in the least. He seems square.
Saying nice things about people doesn’t become me, but Spencer Pratt seems like the rare 20-something jackass who became a 30-something alright dude. There’s got to be another shoe ready to drop. A celebrity Octagon battle with a Teen Mom or some shit. This optimistic turn may split the universe.
An Unbelievable New Demian Maia BJJ In MMA Highlight Video!
Demian Maia is a Jiu-Jitsu legend who is using his BJJ to destroy the UFC’s welterweight division. He is arguably the greatest Jiu-Jitsu expert to enter the octagon since Royce Gracie. Check out his amazing highlight video below!
Note** The beginning of this video I talk about teaching and the difficulties of being an instructor. I also talk about a good training partner and how this technique fits into the larger picture of hand placement. If you do not want to hear about the teaching process and this aspect of the technique then you should fast forward to the technique demonstration.
In this video I show a version of the pocket sweep from the Half Guard. This is by far my highest percentage sweep and I use it, and it’s variations as the basis of my Half Guard game.
Hand placement is going to be important as well as arching to clear the arm. This is a peek at part of the series where I show how to get the arm across from a very specific location. There were other lessons that fill in the holes when you can’t get ahold of the hand like it is shown in this video. – Great Grappling

How To Submit Your Opponent Inside Of Their Closed Guard
99 out of 100 times your coach will tell you to break out of the closed guard and not try to submit your opponent from there. However there remains that 1 time out of 100 where you can successfully submit your opponent while inside of their closed guard.
One technique for doing this is the Ezequiel choke.
In the video below our friend Dainis Nguyen demonstrates how to do just that.

Why And How To Incorporate Wrestling Into Your BJJ Training – Firas Zahabi
This video is about How to incorporate Wrestling in BJJ. In my opinion BJJ and Wrestling should all be training in one room just like all the Wrestling programmes across the world. Blending both Jiu-Jitsu and Wrestling together leads to scrambles and sequences that we would others never have a chance to explore. Don’t miss out on adding this very interesting dimension to your game. – Firas Zahabi
