Lance Trippett hanging out with Master De La Riva

About a week ago Master De La Riva came to Conquest (my school) to hang out with us and teach a seminar. He is not only a legend in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ( he has his owe position), he is an amazing person. DLR is one of those guys that is aways smiling and he lights up the room when he comes in. 

 The day after the seminar my instructor Vicente Jr, who is very close with DLR, set up an extra training session for me and a few of my training partners. We rolled and talked about a few different positions. I was like a kid in a candy store. I pick up a few new tricks that has already helped my game. 

Before we stopped for the day, I asked Masted De La Riva to show me one of his favorite techniques. He decided to show a sweet DLR guard to back take / sweep option.

Let me know how you like it!!

Are you looking for a 3 in 1 open guard passing drill?

Vicente Jr and I are always working on new drills and this is one of our NEW favorites. We love the way it flows, and the idea, of working 3 different passes from the same starting position. When you approach a technique this way, it gives your mind and body a few different options, but you will always gravitate toward the one that woks the best for the situation, and your body.

Take a look and let me know what you think!

If you ever have a question or want to see a drill or technique for something please send me an email with your request to info@bestbjjdrills.com

Leandro Lo Spider Guard Drill

Now that I’m back and have been posting weekly. I have had a lot of questions coming in. (BTW, I love questions please keep sending them)

One question I have had a lot is about showing a good Spider Guard drill. I was going to shoot a video showing some one the ones that I do. Then I remembered about a year ago my professor and training partner Vicente Jr was training with Leandro Lo and they recorded one of my favorite drills. I sent this drill to my email subscribers around a year ago so I thought I should remind them and show everyone else.

In this Spider Guard drill Leandro shows how to set up the one legged X-guard (one of my favorites) or you can use it to take the back, which is always a great idea.

After you watch please leave me a comment and share this with your friends.

Never lose their back!

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.
