Adult Virtual Class – “Position Over Submission”

This week in class we watched a match from Professor Guto Campos at the 2017 Master Worlds and understood the importance of prioritizing Position over Submission. Specifically, how we can use the submission as a way to secure our current position or even advance to a greater one.

When we focus on the position, we are able to advance without losing ground gained in the match. This week we saw Professor Guto make use of the Kimura as a way to lock his opponent and fore a reaction to advance to the guard pass. However, If we are quick to always go for the submission in a match then, we risk losing all the positional ground we have gained.

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.

Adult Virtual Class – Triangle Concepts

Dive into a recap from this week’s instruction where we covered a few key details for finishing the triangle submission. The triangle choke attack is one of the most popular and effective submissions in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It is a very powerful submission that utilizes the strength of your legs to squeeze your opponent and causes them to tap from pressure on their neck. Using these tips will increase the success of your attacks and ensure your opponent doesn’t get out:
  1. Trap the shoulder
  2. Don’t “break the glass
  3. Flex your feet

Adult Virtual Class – Taking the Back

This week we covered the details for taking the back and establishing control from several positions. As with any other type of control, our primary objective is focus on the GAP. In order to control the GAP from the back we apply three rules to control the position:
  1. Hooks in: You want to ensure you have both feet hooking over your opponents legs with your heels clamped down tight
  2. Chest on back: Place your chest squarely against your opponent’s back so there is no space and your opponent is unable to get their back free
  3. Ear on ear: With your hooks in place and chest on your opponents back, you want to put your ear against your opponent’s ensuring your head is adjacent to your opponent’s head

Adult Virtual Class – Opening the Guard

We’ve all felt the frustration of being trapped in the closed guard against someone who has great control in their guard game. Trying to break open their guard can be exhausting, time consuming, and leaves you vulnerable to several types of submission attacks. Without the proper tools, it can feel near impossible to get out!

In class this week, we addressed the problem of opening your opponent’s guard and boiled it down to a 3 step process:
  1. Keep the GAP
  2. Focus on their feet
  3. Get your knee up
Check out the video recap for all of the in-depth details for each step. When you understand these 3 basics principles, you can apply it to several different guard passing options.
