World Champion and 5X Pan Am champion Vicente Jr (VJ) is one of my best friends, business partner, and also my BJJ Professor. I started training under him as a Purple belt but, (I might as well have been a white belt) I was not very good and most of what I did know was wrong. Once I stared training under him, he started to fix my bad habits and teach me the proper way to train, learn, teach and compete. I’m very lucky to have a professor that is as good as he is, but I’m even more lucky to have him as friend and mentor.

This was a drill we did last week in our Conquest competition team training. It show the correct way to get from a closed guard to spider guard and ends with a nice triangle choke.

My Tricky Closed Guard Armbar Setup!

If you know me, then you know, I love the closed guard. To me the closed guard is a position that, I feel, everyone needs to master.  (or at least try to) In BJJ your guard is your home, and you need to control who comes in and who gets out.

This is a slick armbar setup that I use all the time and it almost always works! It will take some drilling to get the timing down, but it is worth it.
