The open guard is typically used to perform various joint locks and chokeholds. The legs can be used to move the opponent, and to create leverage. The open guard allows the opponent to stand up or try to pass the guard, so this position is often used temporarily to set up sweeps or other techniques.
Coach Sam Coutts shows how to properly break fall for BJJ or MMA.
A breakfall or ukemi is a movement preformed to prevent one from injuring themselves when landing. Breakfalls are necessary in martial arts that utilize grappling, takedowns and/or throwing techniques (such as Aikido, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hapkido, or Judo) in order to prevent injury from a fall.
“This is a special Veterans Day bonus technique we shot along with the Jocko Willink article.
Not long ago, I had the pleasure to link up with Jocko and my old buddy Echo Charles, who happens to be the producer and co-host of the Jocko Podcast. We spent an afternoon at his Victory MMA academy in San Diego and they were gracious enough to show some technique as well have a sit-down and talk a little about Jocko’s service and interest in jiu-jitsu. As an added bonus Dean Lister was in the house and he also provided some gems. We all know Dean Lister as “the Boogey Man” on the mats, but he is also the proud son of a U.S. Marine veteran.” – JiuJitsuMagazine
