In this daily dose of bullshido we have an Aikido master vs a BJJ Blue Belt. I suspect that this is an online blue belt because this would just not happen in real life. The Aikido guy has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to defeating BJJ practitioners.

How Do I Stop Bigger, Stronger Opponents From Beating Me?

How Do I Stop Bigger, Stronger Opponents From Beating Me?

 

The short answer: Jiu-Jitsu.

 

Sorry, that’s not very helpful, but what you probably mean is “Which Jiu-Jitsu techniques can I use to beat a bigger, stronger opponent?” Again, the trouble is that’s still too broad. The answer is “all of them” or “any of them” or “the right ones.” I don’t mean to get all Mr. Miyagi on you, so I’ll explain.

 

Jiu-Jitsu was developed to give a smaller, weaker person a chance to defend against and even subdue a large aggressive attacker. Good Jiu-Jitsu techniques achieve this through positioning and leverage, and they should work on a bigger, stronger opponent. That means you have the entire breadth of Jiu-Jitsu to look to for answers.

 

There isn’t a single move, or even a specific series of moves, that will let you easily defeat a monster. I could show you my favorites moves, and another instructor could show you theirs, and that might help you. That’s the basis for Stephan Kesting’s DVD sets that are specifically dedicated to “How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent,” like his most recent one with fellow black belt Brandon Mullins. Those DVDs, or any like them, will give you techniques and ideas that will help.

 

So learning new techniques is helpful, especially if you don’t know very many yet, but it only goes so far. Eventually, you know enough techniques–maybe even too many–but you could still be having problems. That’s when it becomes a matter of gaining more experience (mostly through sparring), increasing your skill, and deepening your knowledge. How well do you know what you know?

 

Let’s be honest, being big and strong is its own advantage. That’s why we’re having this talk. Beginners struggle with this problem, and given a big and strong enough opponent, even experienced guys do. They want solutions now. The trouble is that it simply takes a long time to learn Jiu-Jitsu, which is frustrating if in the meantime you’re getting smashed by big guys.

 

My advice is the same as if you asked “How do I learn Jiu-Jitsu?” It’s simple and straightforward:

 

Go to class regularly

 

Pay attention to your instructor

 

Spar a lot (especially with big guys, if they are the problem)

 

Stick with BJJ for at least 6-12 months, even if you don’t feel like you’re getting better. It may even take longer. But one day, you’ll know enough techniques and do them well enough that you won’t be worrying about this any more.

 

You probably wanted something quicker and easier, and believe me, if I had that secret, I’d be selling it for millions! – Written by Aesopian

 


 

A New Guard Emerges – The Krab Guard

A New Guard Emerges – The Krab Guard

 

“Coming straight from my laboratory deep in the atos headquarters, I give you KRAB GUARD. A tasty little morsel of what I know will become quite a extensive guard system. Ideal for people who don’t like open guard, think of KRAB GUARD as secondary half guard, just backwards and better. And with less shoulder pressure in your face. The more the push, the tighter it becomes , like a Chinese finger trap, once the krab guard gets a hold of you there is no letting go. I started working on this a few days ago but I was so excited about it I had to share it. Remember to go sign up at https://keenanonline.com/ to keep learning my original techniques and methods.” – Keenan Cornelius

 

 


 

Ralek Gracie Heading To Bellator. His Brothers Rener And Ryron Break Ties.

Ralek Gracie Heading To Bellator. His Brothers Rener And Ryron Break Ties.

 

Ralek Gracie, of the famed Gracie jiu-jitsu family, has signed a contract to compete in Bellator MMA.

Gracie, 31, confirmed the signing to ESPN.com. His debut is currently targeted for a televised event on Jan. 21 in Inglewood, California, against an opponent yet to be determined. He plans to fight at middleweight.

Son of iconic jiu-jitsu practitioner Rorion Gracie and nephew of UFC legend Royce Gracie, Ralek Gracie (3-0) hasn’t competed in MMA since 2010. All of his pro fights occurred in Japan. His most recent was a decision win against Kazushi Sakuraba in May 2010.

“I’m ready to get myself back out there,” Gracie said. “I competed in a Metamoris jiu-jitsu match [in July], and I felt like I got in amazing shape but wasn’t able to focus like I wanted, because I was running my own show.

“I’ve always fought MMA. I never really competed in jiu-jitsu. I was always attracted to more of a real fight. I think people still want to know what this original style of jiu-jitsu can do in modern MMA. I’m into that, and I’m into being a catalyst in that story.”

Gracie jiu-jitsu has served an integral role in the evolution of mixed martial arts. The sport was born in many ways at UFC 1 in November 1993, when Royce Gracie submitted three men on the same night to win the first UFC tournament.

Ralek Gracie’s involvement in professional MMA has been limited thus far. He said injuries and the responsibilities of fatherhood contributed to his decision to step away from competition years ago.

“Life got in the way a little bit,” Gracie said. “For me, it was always the goal [to compete in MMA], but I didn’t get paid for my last fight against Sakuraba. [Japanese promotion] DREAM was in a position where they were going down, and it was bad timing for me. At that time, I needed something more stable. I had kids. I needed to be more responsible for their future and think differently, but in the meantime, I always watched the growth of the sport.”

In 2014, Gracie founded Brazilian jiu-jitsu promotion Metamoris, which got off to a strong start but has since fallen under controversy.

The submission-only promotion has featured the likes of several Gracie family members, decorated grapplers and MMA stars in Chael Sonnen and Rory MacDonald, among others. Along the way, however, the promotion faced accusations of false charges on stored consumer credit cards and failure to pay its competitors.

Earlier this week, Flograppling.com reported Gracie’s brothers, Ryron and Rener, issued an internal email cautioning Gracie academies from conducting business with Ralek and Metamoris. Ralek Gracie expressed optimism about Metamoris and his relationship with his brothers, while reiterating his excitement about MMA.

“I really want to focus on this right now, but I definitely would say [Metamoris] is doing everything it can to move forward in the most honorable way possible,” Gracie said. “It’s tough, man. We went through a hard time, and I think people took for granted what we were bringing to the table — something that was revolutionary for the sport. We were really young, really green and didn’t have the business experience.

“It’s a surreal thing, to answer questions about my brothers — and even trying to defend yourself is dishonorable in this kind of situation. We’re just doing the best we can, and I think there are some stuff behind the scenes that people don’t know about and shouldn’t know about. I really don’t like avoiding questions, but at the end of the day, I really don’t think it’s important or relevant in this circumstance. This [Bellator signing] is very exciting and I’m excited to compete.”
