(New Video) How To Be Dynamic From The Closed Guard In BJJ
“In Jiu Jitsu, the possibilities have no ending. Here we show you some options against common reactions from your opponents, for you to drill and get more and more dynamic in training and competition!
Don’t forget that the tips are just as important as the main steps for this quick guide! And also, this technique we showed in a few minutes, is just meant to serve as a guide for people that practice with an instructor who doesn’t only correct the technical mistakes, but also guides the students with concepts that can’t be explained briefly. These moves were executed in training and/or competition and have worked.” – BJJ Project
Jiu Jitsu Competitor Gets Arm Brutally Broken In Tournament (Graphic)
Last weekend, competing at the Gracie invitational, this BJJ competitor neglected to tap when he should have. It is a difficult video to watch. GRAPHIC WARNING! Let this serve as a lesson to all white belts to tap early to avoid serious injuries.
Please be careful on the mats everyone. If you find yourself in a compromising situation, tap quickly! It is not worth the many months of recovery for an injury like this.
4 Fake Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts And How They Were Exposed
“Woe to ye oh false bearer of the blackest of belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu”– The Jiu Jitsu Bible Chapter 1, Verse 10.
I am only kidding about the Jiu Jitsu Bible thing. However it is no joke when someone falsely dons a BJJ Black Belt that they have not earned. The BJJ community is small and tight knit. It is virtually impossible to think that you can get away with being a fake black belt. Literally a million people will know about your falsity within a matter of a day or two.
Below we will share the stories of 4 fake BJJ Black Belts who were outed by the Jiu Jitsu community in 2015.
1. Let’s start with the latest. The BJJ Hour podcast guys outed this fellow just yesterday.His name is Mark McMahon. This gentleman was found to be a Gracie University Online Blue Belt. His Instagram page shewn him wearing his Blue Belt, than weeks later, he is a BJJ Professor.
2. A little over a month ago Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt Mike Palladino exposes a man posing as a Black Belt in Marlboro, NY.His name is Jay Queiroz.
3. Earlier this summer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Ruben Alvarez confronts a person trying to pass as a Black Belt.
4. Early in 2015 Justin Farwell outed a Fake BJJ Black Belt working in a UFC gym.
From Justin Farwell: “I didn’t do any of this to be mean so please don’t think that. I was respectful as you can see. Here’s the deal… I know blackbelts and they all busted their asses for years and years to accomplish the rank of a Jiu Jitsu Black Belt. All my brothers that work so hard in the sport of Jiu Jitsu making sacrifices from there kids and families. I did this for all of you.”
Please, please, please never pretend to be a different belt rank then you are. Live your life with pride, dignity and honor and this will never be an issue! It is simply not worth it to be ostracized by such an active and genuine community!
Hope you enjoyed the post! Now go earn your belts!
Firas Zahabi Teaches How To Setup The Triangle From Closed Guard
“In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the Guard is the heart of the art. Most BJJ battles are won and lost during the Guard battle. If you are on top you need to pass if you are on bottom you need to sweep or submit. The transition to triangle is a key maneuver when it comes to being successful playing from the bottom.
In this video I cover key aspects for successfully transitioning from guard to triangle. Be sure to study this transition carefully and it will serve you well.” – Firas Zahabi
Rafael Lovato Jr Scores Another MMA Win! Full Fight Video!
The most decorated American Jiu Jitsu artist is definitely making a splash in the MMA world. Rafael Lovato Jr. moves to 2-0 after last night’s win over Kevin Holland at Legacy Fighting Championships 46. I don’t want to spoil the fight for you so check out the full video below!
Japanese video game magazine Famitsu has posted images online of Laura performing various moves and grappling with Ryu. Based on the images and the types of strikes and holds she’s using, it appears her fighting style might be some form of Brazilian jiu-jitsu as opposed to the series’ other Brazilian mainstay Blanka, who practices his version of capoeira.
It does appear Laura might share some similarities with Blanka as she also appears to have some lighting-based attacks, including what appears to be some sort of projectile.
Caio Terra Sparring With Narration By Caio And His Opponent
I love these rolling videos with commentary. They really allow you to get into the mind of the practitioner to see what was going through their mind during particular instances.
