Totowa MMA: A look inside NJ United Mixed Martial Arts Academy

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 101, 9/3/15

Tonight, we had a great Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 101 class in which we drilled some self-defense headlock escapes based on your opponent’s positioning. Remember that it’s essential to have backup escapes; after all, there’s no one escape that’ll enable you to escape everything! Always obey the philosophy of “Right time, right technique, right opponent.”

We also drilled the Von Flue choke – a counter to the guillotine choke. You can see this sneaky move in action for yourself here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rL3vVPGPVlQ

Remember to keep your basics sharp, and try to stay a while after class for open-mat drilling and sparring. See you next time!
