This video is an in depth look into the Basic Stacking Pass.
This is a very common pass that is taught to a lot of white belts. The reason this come so early in the curriculum is because it requires very little (if any) base whereas standing passing can make the students feel like wheebles.
Keep in mind that it is very important to have good posture in the Closed Guard. If you look at the positioning of my arms they are both straight with one hand dominating the chest and one dominating the
In this video I show how to do a Reverse Armbar from Closed Guard. This is a pretty common move that you see attempted throughout the ranks but finished with very little frequency. This is due to the fact that the setup is tedious and the hip movement required to dominate the shoulder is difficult.
This is a great move to attempt on someone who has no posture and will allow you to get a "1 under one over" grip. Take note of how my hand grip is. This is a VERY important detail. The arm th watch video >>
This video looks at the basic Omoplata. There are ton of different setups that can be used but in this video we look at using the Omoplata if your opponent is in your guard and doesn't have any posture. This can be a very frustrating situation especially late in a grappling match when your opponent is trying to stall or get a breather.
It is important to get that initial hip movement. If you reference the vide you will see that I move my hips out before I try to bring that leg in front of watch video >>
In this video I show the important concepts surrounding the Lapel Punch Pass.
If you watch the video you will notice that I do a couple of things differently. One of the things that I do differently involves staggering my hand grips with the lapels. This allows you to stuff the choking hand and have more success with the pass/submission.
Take note at how my hands are positioned. It is very important to have your thumbs facing your chest when taking these grips. This is contrary to the watch video >>
An in depth look at the very basic Pendulum Sweep.
This is a very common sweep that is taught to many practitioners in their first few months but requires a lot of good hip movement to truly master.
I personally chose to teach this as early as possible because it focuses on those strong fundamentals that will transfer to other moves. Please reference the video to see how mobile and "open" your hips should be.
If you find yourself having a lot of trouble with this hip movement I suggest watch video >>
This video is an instruction into how to do the Two on One standing pass. This is one of my favorite passes because it is very dominate and eliminates a lot of your opponents sweep options. There are a lot of steps to this pass but when done correctly is highly effective. Notice that I use the hand that was controlling the hip to dominate the arm. There will be a moment where you have minimal control of the hips because of this. Make sure you pay attention and watch out for the armbar. Onc watch video >>
This video shows how I perform the Hip Bump Sweep. This is a very basic sweep and a very high percentage sweep all through the ranks of BJJ and even into MMA. There are many different schools that show how to do this and there are a lot of acceptable variations. In this video I show a way to swing your arms up around your head and come up off of your ribs, elbow and hand. When you come at this angle it is very difficult for your opponent to stuff the sweep while also being very comfortable t watch video >>
This video is a closer look at the Basic Armbar from Closed Guard. Although the title has the word "basic" in it you will see that there are a lot of steps involved. Being honest there are a lot of other armbar variations that are easier than this armbar but teaching this at an early stage focuses on a lot of fundamental BJJ movements like staying tight, elevation of the hips, rotation of the body, domination of the arm, squeezing the knees and not crossing your feet. I find that although the watch video >>
In this video I show a very basic yet effective Butterfly Guard Pass, The Egg Cracker. I really love teaching this pass to beginners because it focuses on the spatial control and good base. The first thing that needs to be stressed in Butterfly Guard is creating distance between you and your opponent, dominating their legs by squeezing your knees and flattening out your opponent. All of these are present in this pass! The first thing part of this pass is making sure that you have a strong ba watch video >>
In this video I show a basic Butterfly Guard Pass called Control The Ankle and Flatten Out. I learned this when I was a white belt and I still use the concepts a lot in my passing game. The idea of controlling your opponents legs with one arm by gripping the far pant leg and then flattening out will be an invaluable skill to have at the higher levels. The first, and most overlooked piece, is to bring your opponents ankles close to their butt and then to squeeze with your knees. I will almost watch video >>
