Advanced Hip Bump (Upa) Sweep Details I Bet You’ve Never Seen

 

The hip bump sweep is usually one of the first sweeps that someone learns in Jiu-Jitsu. That being said one may be under the impression that this beginner move loses efficacy at the higher levels.

This could not be further from the truth.

Coach Keith Cebula of Crazy 88 MMA gives some details (part of his 2-on-1 drag series) that will keep this sweep working for you all the way through black belt and beyond.

What To Expect Your First Few Weeks Of Training BJJ

 

A lot of people are apprehensive about starting Jiu-Jitsu even though they would really like to give it a try. For obvious reasons the art can seem intimidating to say the least. Most of the people they see practicing are mostly in shape or well on their way top getting there. They may see some tattoo’d folks and some others with deranged cauliflower ear.

This is mostly perception. Most times when you walk into an academy you will be received with smiles and a welcoming warmth.

Instead of speculating over the fear and anxiety of what could go wrong for you at a BJJ class, sit down and check out these videos from others who explain just what to expect.

I guarantee it will take the edge off of your anxiety to start.

BJJ Fundamentals | Focus on Fundamentals, NOT Escapes

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art that is structured around attaining dominant position in a fight, and then having multiple options to finish the fight if the need arises.

If you find yourself needing to escape too often, it could be that you are doing something fundamentally wrong that is putting you too frequently into bad position.

In the video below, Coach John Frankl continues his lesson on BJJ fundamentals; teaching what a grappler should focus on when the roll goes south.

BJ Penn – “My Whole Game Is Basics”

 

bjpennbasics

 

BJ “The Prodigy” Penn is a true BJJ and Mixed Martial Arts Legend. His list of achievements is too long to list and most of us already know of them anyway.

 

In this video series BJ explains that the secret to his meteoric rise was Brazilian Jiu Jitsu basics. In the video below he goes so far as to say that his entire game is basics.

 

For a fledgling white belt (and blue belts like myself), it is tremendously easy to get caught up in the flash of today’s BJJ. There is so much dynamic maneuvering going on and the advent of new and exciting guards, that it makes it difficult for a white belt to simply focus on the armbar from closed guard.

 

However white belt, this is a game of patience. There will plenty of time down the road to get as flashy as you would like. Take it from BJ Penn, fundamentals are your best friend!

 

I highly recommend reading his book Why I Fight: The Belt Is Just an Accessory

 

It is an incredible story if you are a Jiu Jitsu lover. BJ tells all about rising up from his struggles growing up in Hilo, Hawaii to going on to becoming the first American BJJ Black Belt to ever win the World Championship (Mundials). Check out that match here.
