On Tap This Week In Jiu-Jitsu ~ 3/24/13 – 3/30/13

Beginners Six Month and Under

Last week we worked side headlock escape 1 & 2 when an opponent traps us on the ground. This week we turn the focus to standing. Upon establishing a clinch on the opponent, it is highly likely they will become desperate and lock you in a headlock. Without the proper escape, the standing headlock can be a very painful and demoralizing place to find yourself, however with the right techniques you can turn their hold to your gain!

Intermediate Six Months to One Year

~ Monday Through Thursday 6pm
