The snow is falling here on the east coast, so I had to cancel classes tonight at my academy. I shot this video last week, but I was out of town all weekend teaching a seminar in Pennsylvania with my instructor Professor Vicente Junior (VJ). I had a lot of you, ask for a quick follow up video, talking about the grip fighting ideas from my last post, “Are you losing the BJJ grip fight? Most of you aren’t even playing the game.” In this grip fighting video, VJ and I will show you how to start your attacks, and how to react when someone grips you first. One idea I want you to get from this, is a mindset of trying to never let someone grip you first, or have a better grip then you. If you are behind on the grips when you start, its very hard if not impossible, to catch up. What you need to do is, stop your attack and break their grips, then start your attack again with your grips in the correct places. Check out the video below and leave me a comment.
Drilling is the key, so just do it!
