Okay, if you didn’t know who Ryan Hall was before then this season of The Ultimate Fighter should’ve definitely made you pay attention. This is a video he posted on his Instagram (I suggest following him). Ryan’s ground work is absolutely incredible. Watching these transitions is getting me hyped to train this week. Enjoy!
Hey guys, this month at 10thPVN we’re going over Deep Half Guard!
Now, we got a bunch of killers from the DHG at our gym..unfortunately I am not one of them…
It’s okay though, through the teachings at the gym and researching vids like this one, I’ve been able to step my game up from this unique position quite a bit. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Incredible! If you haven’t seen some the Stuart Cooper Films you are definitely missing out. Go check him out. This video is about Braulio Estima in his new Youtube Video called “Tune My Game.” As the title suggests, he works with some grapplers to help them improve on different parts of their game including the Darce, Half Guard, etc. Personally, I loved this video and hope to see much more to this series. Braulio is a world class grappler and amazing teacher, you can really feel his passion when he speaks about techniques and philosophies on the game. As previously mentioned, Stuart Cooper made this video and as usual, it is absolutely on point. I just posted an article on his video “The Spirit of Jiu Jitsu” and that is one of my favorites as well. Check it out and get your game tuned!
Hey guys, just a quick post here!
Jason Scully has an extremely popular YouTube channel amongst the Jiu Jitsu community. While the majority of his videos are a quick reference guide of techniques or movements, this one is a bit longer and more detailed about one of his key concepts to passing the guard, stapling.
“Stapling,” is a great idea to implement into your passing game. It can increase your passing percentage by quite a bit to simply apply this stapling technique and control the leg on the side you are passing to.
The beautiful thing about passing the Guard in Jiu Jitsu is that the concepts apply towards all different kinds of guards and just need to be adjusted accordingly. So, everything from Open Guard, Half Guard, etc. all have similar concepts to being passed, you just need to put the concepts into play to be successful. For example, controlling the hips and knees or keeping your opponent flat are all concepts that are essential for any kind of guard you find yourself attempting to pass.
Anyway, if you guys are having some trouble passing, this is a great video that explains this concept and you should all try it out no matter where you are having trouble passing from!
Also, last month at 10th Planet Van Nuys we worked quite a bit on our Full Guard Passing. Now, we are focusing on finishing the year strong with some Half Guard passing techniques. So, if you need some help with your passing game, come down to 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Van Nuys and we’ll be more than happy to help you guys out!
Hey guys, just poppin in real quick before I head out to drop this video for you. This is a link to a video called “The Art of Sparring” with Rener Gracie.
