BJJ Conceptual Basics – Affecting Structure By Using Chokes

 

We can always attack the head/neck to create an advantage from full mount. If you are having a hard time moving your opponent’s arms, then make them do it for you. Create the dilemma of 1) Keep your neck undefended and get submitted, or 2) Move your hands up to defend the choke but risk giving up further position or submission threats. Our opponent has to take the second choice in order to fight another battle, that’s when we capitalize.

Alignment in BJJ is defined for us as “Our body’s ability to generate and absorb force.” The goal in any fighting context to to maximize our body’s potential by being in proper alignment, and create vulnerability in our opponent by breaking theirs.

Alignment is comprised of 3 aspects:
1) Posture – The integrity of our spinal column
2) Structure – The efficient and effective positioning of our limbs relative to our goals.
3) Base – A platform from which to apply and absorb force, and relative to our goals.

The Easiest Half Guard Sweep For BJJ White Belts

 

Half guard can be a difficult position for the new BJJ practitioner. I think I was 6 months into BJJ before I even knew their was a half guard. I either had you in my closed guard, or you passed my guard.

One of the greatest half guard players ever, Lucas Leite, teams up with Bernardo Faria to show a simple half guard sweep for white belts.

How To Turn Their Kimura Into A Kimura Of Your Own!

 

In this video I show an important move in both Gi and No Gi, the Reverse Kimura. This is a high percentage move that can really catch some people off guard. It is however important to note that you should never let anyone lock a Kimura grip on you as that is dangerous and missing this defense would leave you in a very bad place.

With that being said, if you use this as a defense, or in conjunction with other defenses, then this can be a fantastic move!

The pressure on this is INTENSE and you should make sure that you drill it out before attempting it in rolling. Each partner’s shoulder flexibility is different and it’s important to note those differences when applying this move because it comes on very quickly and can catch people off guard.

Things to remember include pressure forward into the back of the shoulder. When this move fails it’s typically because the driving pressure wasn’t done correctly. Also make sure that your knees don’t touch the floor and all of your weight is on your partners shoulder.

If you mess this up and fall off the side then the option will be there to take the back (which I’ll show in the next video)

thanks for watching

Have You Ever Heard Of The “Choi Bar”? | No Gi Technique

 

In a recent match between Tim Spriggs and Craig Jones, Craig attempted an armbar technique two times that I (in my limited knowledge) had never seen before. After some investigation I learned that the movie is called the “Choi Bar”.

Check out the match here:

So naturally I went to YouTube to see if I can find this move explained. And lo and behold…
