How it Goes?

I have been gone for a while and I am sorry about that. Life has a way of pulling us in many different directions. Fall of 2014 and the start of 2015 were full of ups and downs for me and my family. Because of that, I was not on the mats as much as I wanted to be. I had a few injuries, I put a lot of time into the business side of Conquest Academy, and my wife and I had a new beautiful daughter (MYA).

I was going through some old files and found the first Best BJJ Drills videos that Kail (when he was still a brown belt) and I shot. We thought we need to do voice overs and slow motion. LOL I don’t like these at all! The content is great they are just overproduced.

We have learn a lot over the past year. Now we just let the camera roll no edits and however they end up, we put them out. What do you think? Do you like the raw videos we do now, or these oldies but goodies.

Did you get the latest BJJ DVD, with 2000 techniques?

I wrote a post back in December talking about the over consumption of information. Here’s a link to that post “Thanks, But Too Much Information”.  Everyone loves buying the new DVD sets showing 5 hours of techniques; the problem is, you won’t ever be able to consume all that information. Even if you’re one of those photographic memory, genius types, you may consume it, but you’ll never really learn it that way.

stress

How many times have you bought one of these sets for hundreds of dollars? If you even watch the whole dvd, which you probably won’t, you’ll only remember a handful of techniques, and be able to apply even less when you’re rolling. That’s right, you just spent all that money to learn two or three techniques. These big box sets don’t teach you Jiu Jitsu, they just bombard you with techniques so you feel you got your money’s worth. So if your goal is to see as many moves as possible without ever really learning the concepts, keep buying these mega set’s.

I have found the best way to learn BJJ is through repetition and concepts. You need to work one or two ideas until you can do them in your sleep. Whenever I have had a problem or see a student having a problem, I teach and follow these 5 steps so I’m always training BJJ, even outside of class.

 Reflect:

After almost every training session, I try to sit and think about the things that worked and the things that didn’t work. I use reflection as a tool to keep track of my good and bad days. When I say reflect, I don’t mean think about it for 5 – 10 minutes, I mean run each match back through your head and actually write down what went well and what you need work on. Keeping all of this information in one book or training journal is the key. It will allow you to watch for any patterns, and address them immediately when they’re found.

 Research:

Now, when I say research I don’t mean go watch 2 hrs of Youtube videos. Research, to me, is thinking about a position, breaking down each step, and identifying the missing link. You should also ask instructors, fellow students, or even me (shoot me an email with a quick question or video and I’ll try to help bestbjjdrills@gmail.com) where you are messing up. Depending on your school, and how cool your instructor is, this can be an easy way, or a painful way to get answers to your questions. You need to intelligently assess the situation, and constantly re-evaluate your efforts.

 Solution:

Now that we’ve identified the problem with the technique, we need to address the solution. How will I insert a movement or mindset in order to stop a particular submission or make a technique work better? Questions and answers is the process. BJJ teaches you there’s an intelligent solution for every problem. Sometimes that solution is tapping out, sometimes it’s turning a failing submission into a sweep, and sometimes it is following this 5 step process.

 Concept:

Asking questions and getting answers is always the best way to overcome any issue you are having in Jiu Jitsu. Anytime I’m trying to learn something new, or correct a mistake, I follow this exact system. Once I get to step 4 I review steps 1-3 and try to find any concepts that will help me understand BJJ from a higher level. A simple conceptual example is if I’m going to sweep someone I need to control an arm and a leg on one side, their base. If I can remember that, I don’t need to memorize and exact sweep. I can sweep from various positions by applying the larger concept of controlling my opponent’s base on one side.

 Drill:

The last step of the system is drilling. If you want to improve you have to put the work in outside of class. We have done the mental preparation, reflected on the problem, broke down how to fix it, and have looked for any overall concepts. Now we need to drill until the techniques become second nature. We want to work this one position with 2-3 variations for a few weeks, or longer. Remember, Bruce Lee once said “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

  Basically here’s my philosophy toward learning BJJ outside of the school. Take it slow and work one idea at a time. Don’t overload your brain with hundreds of ideas that you will never understand or even remember. Learning from a system, with concepts, will always beat learning from over consumption.

Still getting smashed in side-control?

DSC_0286

Some of you are still having trouble with the dreaded side-control. Trust me, I know how bad this position can be. When I get my guard passed and my face is getting crushed, I always think to myself, I need to fix my guard because this position SUCKS!!!

If you are new to this site and have not tried my FREE Side-Control Survival Guide please try it. It just might save your face one day.

Everyone gets their guard passed so don’t think you suck or its only you. If someone does pass and they will, you need to get out. On the video this week I Kail Bosque and I show how we like to escape side-control.

I you like the info I put up please spread the word about Best BJJ Drills.

If your sick you need a pill. If you suck you need to DRILL!!

Great Scissor Sweep with escape Drill

I had to spend countless hours, above and beyond the basic time, to try and perfect the fundamentals.

Just as Julius Erving shot thousands of basket balls, you will need to drill this basic sweep thousands of times to master it . The scissor sweep and technical escape are two very basic but also very effective techniques.

In this video we will link both techniques together to work a sweet partner drill. Professor Kail Bosque and I will show the way we like to teach both of these movements and how we put them together to drill in a very effective way.

Time is always an issue for us. By linking two or three techniques together like we did here and in the triple guard attack, we are not only drilling, but we are drilling with no wasted movements.

Drilling is the key, so just do it.

Talk to you soon, and please share this.

Professor, Lance Trippett

BJJ Back attacks

Bow and arrow choke

“Never lose their back!” is something you will hear a lot at my academy. The back is one of the hardest positions to get to in BJJ, so when you get there don’t ever lose that position. It doesn’t matter if you are in a street fight, BJJ match, or an MMA fight. When you make it to your opponents back you have them beat. It’s the safest place to be and you should be able to ride the position until you get the submission. ( not always but 9 out of 10 times)

I have put together a back control and transition video that shows some of my favorite and most successful BJJ back take ideas. Before you watch the video make sure to get on the email list (located on the side bar) where I will be sending out some of my best chokes from the back ( ONLY IF YOUR ON MY LIST ) Once you sign up for the list you will also get my to try my 14 day “Never Get Smashed In Side-Control Again” program FREE.

As a follow up to my post a few weeks back, “Call Me the Head Hunter” , I was asked to post some examples of how to control my opponents head and how it helps. With so many questions, I asked my training partner Kail Bosque to help me shoot a quick video of some of the drills we use. In this we will show how to Stop someone from passing your guard and how by using the correct head control you can get one of my favorite passes.

By the way, I love getting feed back, so shoot me an email or leave me a comment, if you have and questions or just to say HELLO.
