My purpose is to lay down all the foundational techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so that you can catch up on them at home. We often don't have enough class time to hit these concepts as much as we should in regular class.
So far, the vides are:
1) Guard Top Position: What to do before you actually start moving. Most guys jump right into a pass attempt without setting themselves up for it first.
2) Hip Heist Sweep: A simple, one-move sweep from closed guard that relies heavily on timing.
3) Side Mount Top: What to do once you're there, how to hold it, and what to do before you start trying to submit them.
4) Side Mount Bottom and Hip Escape: What to do if someone passes your guard, and the most critical escape from that position.
5) "Umpa" or Bridge Escape from Mount: What to do if you're mounted, and then how to start escaping. I believe there are only two major mount escapes you need to know, and if you're good at both, they're enough to keep you safe almost always. This is one of them.
6) Stack Passes: Two very tight, conservative, and high percentage guard passes to improve your position, as well as a few important "Dont's!"
And more to come!
