Study: Anatomical Breakdown

Going over a passing approach that kills with a friend (on carpet baby!) we examined why it worked anatomically.

In our case it was using total body movement to isolate hip abductors, but the bigger idea is taking the time to understand specific structural mismatches in a given scenario.

  1. Yo Maximus,

    Been working hard on the posture-control aspects of closed guard we were talking about and had a nice revelation yesterday with respect to preventing the opponent from gaining posture. Don’t know that I can articulate it well enough here, but suffice to say that the closed guard has been working better when I get the opponent down and keep them down. Attacks come when the opponent starts trying to deal with the ruined posture. Specifically, straight armlocks have been much easier to time and execute.


    1. This is great, and probably a better approach from a Jiu-Jitsu perspective than rushing into a triangle as suggested.

      Let them compensate and take what they give you. Launch a triangle if they lay there, but wait thirty seconds to see if they give you something easier by overcompensating.
