Try This Painful Choke To Open Your Opponent’s Closed Guard!

 

A really frustration situation in BJJ is when a long legged person locks up Full Guard, squeezes and doesn’t open.

It can be incredibly hard to open someone’s Guard who has really long legs.

As I’ve expressed in other videos. The full guard was one of my worst positions early on.

In this video our friend Andrea, asks a similar question for her Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training.

She wants to know how to break full guard when the person has long legs and squeezes.

In this video I show a really simple Thrust Choke that can be used in order to get the person on the bottom to open up.

It’s simple, powerful and really uncomfortable for the person on the bottom. And if they don’t respect the submission attempt. It’s possible for them to go unconscious.

And as I explain in the video. From my experience in Brazilian Jiujitsu. When you apply the choke. Guard players will often open up to get out of the position and choke.

So if you’re having trouble breaking full guard in BJJ. Give the choke a try!

How Hard Should You Roll Leading Up To BJJ Competitions

 

How hard should you roll in your gym leading up to a BJJ competition and how often should you roll that way?

This is the question Damon asked after competing in his 1st BJJ competition ever.

His question stems from the fact that the tournament match was so intense.

And he says he typically doesn’t feel that level of intensity during his Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training.

In the video I try to explain my thoughts on BJJ training and rolling in the gym vs a Brazilian Jiujitsu match in a competition.

And it’s my belief that while sometimes your training partners will exceed the skill level of your opponents in a competition, making a match easy.

You probably won’t be able to replicate the same level of intensity from a BJJ competition inside your gym.

Watch the video and see what you think.

Enjoy the video.

Can The Gi Make Your No Gi BJJ Better?

 

Is Gi training beneficial for No Gi training? That’s the BJJ related question I received from Ariana who is fairly new to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

She has been doing No Gi thus far and has asked around if she should do some training in the gi. And the general consensus that she gets is that the Gi is not beneficial or is useless.

In this video I touch on my experience about whether or not the Gi can be useful for No Gi BJJ.

But I also touch on the dogmatic approach many people in Brazilian Jiujitsu tend to take. Especially when it comes to this Gi vs No Gi debate.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is art and it’s hard to nail down exacts in an art form.

Think of music and painting. How trends will come and go. Things that used to be considered garbage are now the exact things that are praised for their artistic creativity.

So if you’re wondering this same question, then I hope this helps! And try and keep an open mind for your BJJ training.

Is Training Just Two Days Per Week A Waste Of Time?

 

Can you get better at BJJ training only 2 days a week, or are you wasting your time?

This is a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu question I received from Instagram.

The person asking this question is training No Gi BJJ and has a ton of other interests. In general he’s just a fitness fanatic.

Because of all of these other things on his plate. He’s wondering if he’s wasting his time training 2 times a week of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

In this video I talk about how people mimic the extremes of BJJ like high level competitors. And it’s not in alignment for their goals.

BJJ competitions and grappling competitors are fascinating. And their performances inspire us.

And in turn, we enjoy emulating this style of training. Regardless of whether or not we intend to follow that same path.

And in the the case of the person who asked the question. He has a ton of other goals and interests. So it only makes sense that he would not be as invested into BJJ.

And I try to explain why training twice a week is not a waste of time and how it can even be beneficial for your training because it can create better focus.

If you’re in this situation with you’re training. I hope this video is helpful! Thanks for watching.

And don’t let competitions and the excitement of it shame you or make you feel guilty.

Easy And Effective Butterfly Sweep For White Belts!

 

Jake and I did a great Butterfly Guard setup from Full Guard. This video was recorded while in Costa Rica during the Pura Vida BJJ and Surfing Retreat.

This video was for Jake’s daughter Sage who trains Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and has been wanting to work on sweeps.

So I went through one of my favorite no gi sweeps in BJJ as a White Belt. This is the same setup that helped me ease into doing Butterfly Guard Sweeps and attacks as a White and Blue Belt.

The setup that I show can also be used as an effective posture breaking option. Especially in no gi grappling where people will just tuck their body on top very tight and prevent someone moving inside the Guard.

I hope this Full Guard setup to a Butterfly Guard sweep helps you with your Brazilian Jiujitsu.

Thanks for watching!

Why Do Some People Get Better At BJJ Faster

 

What makes some people in BJJ progress faster than others? This is a loaded question I received recently.

I say loaded because there are so many things that can factor into progression in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Everything from pure genetic potential, to eating habits, sleep habits, level of responsibility outside of the gym and so on.

But our friend left the idea of mindset on the table in his question. So I imagine he thinks your mindset in BJJ has something to do with skill progression. And it does!

So I stuck with that as a focus as to a factor of faster BJJ progression.

Assuming all things are equal. Mindset is one of the biggest factors to progression in Brazilian Jiujitsu.

I know from personal experience. Simply changing my mindset literally make my game completely change and jump, in a positive way, in around a year.

It wasnโ€™t the easiest thing, as it required me to relax and let go of some of my personal baggage. And only came after a tough conversation that transpired with my coaches. But boy did it make a difference.

While this video may not be applicable to you. Because maybe you already represent “Student Bโ€ on the mats. You can use the idea of staying relaxed and being more open to information for just about anything.

thanks for watching!
