Twister submission fun….

I’m not that good with any of the 10th planet stuff, mainly because I’m old and not that flexible so I stick with the old stuff, but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying a good old fashion 10th planet submission.  Here is Josh Hinger pulling off the twister at Grappler’s Quest.  I think I’ve only pulled this off three times ever in training and onc of those times was a complete accident lol….


Naudi Aguilar is a great personal trainer and his functional strength routines are really unique….Check out this great movement routine.  You should definitely look up his channel on youtube, there is a lot of great stuff for the BJJ guys out there…



Parallettes Fun for BJJ….

I definitely have to get me a set of parallettes and this video shows why. Like Ive said a million times before, Im always on the look out for better kdrills and workouts to help my sorry old ass stay competitive in BJJ and this routine is another great routine to add to any BJJ guys aresenal.

I Love how he incorporates passing drills into the routine using the parallette bars…


Cobrinha Warm Ups..

I am always on the lookout for better ways to drill and warmup.  Well in this video from Cobrinhabjj.com I think I hit the jack pot. Here are some unique drills that are a definite must-add to your jiu jitsu workouts.  I especially like how Cobrinha adds some capoeira into the routine plus the heavy drilling for the inverted guard…


Great match here between two guys who have similar styles and are both great finishers…


Keeping the moment going with chaining moves comes Emily Kwok with some great combos from cross-sides position.

Her knee catch from the fore arm attack is a fantastic variation that I’m definitely adding into my arsenal.  So many times I’ve lost the arm bar because of this type of escape attempt……


Once again Robson Moura shows us how its done with his version of the Omopalata/Triangle combo……..



This is the basic arm bar/triangle combo from the guard.  What makes this a little different than the basic set up is his use of the far  arm to make the angle to tighten the choke.   A lot of times I’ll lose the triangle because I’m too busy trying to force my legs into the position. Using the farm arm adds a lot of control and gives you a little more time to set up the triangle………



Sticking with this weeks theme of getting and escaping the triangle comes Robson Moura’s version of escaping the triangle.  I’ve been taught a lot of good escapes from the triangle over the years, but I have to say that this a fantastic version.

How Robson uses the legs is great because it alleviates a lot of the pressure on the neck and makes it impossible for your opponent to break your posture.  It goes without saying that the best way to get out of a triangle is to not get into one, but having this option will make you that much harder to submit.

Drill this escape, I know I’m going to…………..



This is a great set up to a triangle from an attempted sweep from the closed guard.  If I had a third of Robson’s ability I’d be a very happy  man…..lol
