New Kurt Osiander’s Move Of The Week – Longstep Pass From Reverse De La Riva
10 BJJ Solo Drills W/ Heavy Bag (Top Pressure And Movement)
In this video I show 10 BJJ solo drills you can do with an old heavy bag you might have.
I shared in a recent video that I think grappling dummies are a waste of time. Not because they’re not a good tool. But because most people lack the discipline and drive to do use them much at home.
After I made the video a bunch of you sent me messages saying that you have grappling dummies or do solo drills a great deal from your home. Either because it’s supplemental training or because there isn’t a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu school close by.
So to help out with your BJJ training I did another set of BJJ solo drills you can do. Many of these are similar to the various drills I’ve done before. But the purpose isn’t just the drills themselves but getting you to think about how you can use a old heavy bag you might have.
When you do the drills, if you’re looking for a good workout. Do each drill for 30-45 seconds a piece. Then transition to the next drill with no rest. Do this for a full pass through and repeat for 2-3 rounds.
In our gym we use old heavy bags that have broken for MMA fighters to beat on and punch like ground and pound. But you can also use them for your Brazilian Jiu jitsu training in the form of solo drills.
So if you’re looking for solo drills you can do from home. Check out the video and I hope it helps!

All Hell Breaks Loose Between Diaz And McGregor At Latest Press Conference
All hell broke loose at the latest UFC Press conference. At first the press conference goes live, yet Conor McGregor is nowhere to be found. A lackluster press conference ensues as Glover Teixera try to hold things together while Diaz brushes off the question in normal Nate fashion. Finally McGregor shows. When the normal trash-talking begins to happen, Diaz leaves the stage and mayhem ensus as both camps launch cans and water bottles at each!
Check out this angle here that Nick Diaz shared from a social media account!!
Shortly afterward Nick Diaz criticizes Conor for hitting children with water bottles.

Kayla Harrison And The Armbar That Won Her Olympic Gold In Rio
Born in Middletown, Ohio, Harrison took up judo at the age of six, having been introduced to the sport by her mother, who was a black belt. She graduated from Middletown High School (Ohio) in the west side of town.
She began training under coach Daniel Doyle, and won two national championships by the age of 15. However, during that period Doyle was abusing Harrison, who reported it to another judoka, who in turn told Harrison’s mother. She subsequently reported this to the police. Doyle was convicted and sentenced to a ten-year prison term. A month after the abuse was revealed, she moved away from her home in Ohio to move to Boston to train with Jimmy Pedro and his father.
