Adult Virtual Class – The “Four-Square” Concept

The Four Square Concept can be applied from many positions, but is most easy to see when applied to sweeping your opponent. Visualize a cross on the mat that separates the floor into four squares. When attacking a sweep or takedown, we want to dump our opponent into the square that is unoccupied by a base of support. Just like a table has four legs, if you remove one of the legs the table will collapse.
If we make use of this concept we can increase our ability to take advantage of weaknesses in our opponent’s base of support. We saw how Professor JT makes great use of this concept to repeatedly attack and sweep his opponent into the hole and swiftly pass the guard.

Adult Virtual Class – The “Mirror” Concept

This week in class we did another match analysis with a Super Fight featuring Professor Josh. It was awesome to share the thought process and methodology that goes into a competition match. This was also a great way to see how the techniques and concepts we are learning in class are highly effective and applicable to a competition setting.
In addition, we introduced the Mirror Concept which can accelerate learning by transferring our knowledge of one position to another. When we want to learn Jiu Jitsu most efficiently, we can simplify the process by finding similarities in rules, techniques, and concepts from different positions. The Mirror Concept is a great example of finding consistency between positions that mirror each other on top and bottom. One of the most easily recognizable examples of this comes from the closed guard on bottom mirroring the mount from the top. The attacks from both positions are guided by the same mechanics and principles in a mirrored fashion.
