Week 10 Mastery: Headlocks, Throws, and Mount

Greetings, Gracie Barra Team!

We’re excited to kick off Week 10 of our dynamic Gracie Barra curriculum, focusing on mastering fundamental self-defense techniques to elevate your Jiu-Jitsu prowess. Let’s delve into the exciting lineup for each class:

GBK Kids Classes:
This week, our little champions will focus on essential self-defense skills. They’ll learn the Outside Hook Takedown and master a Bear Hug Escape. Additional challenges include exploring an Outside Hook Variation and a self-defense Bear Hug escape. Specific training exercises will further enhance their skills, with instructors demonstrating an attack from the Mount position.

GB1 Fundamentals (Adults & Teens):
Designed to build a strong foundation in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, this class introduces the standing Guillotine technique, seamlessly transitioning into the armbar from Mount. Technical mount finishes, standing escapes from side headlocks, and submissions like the Straight Armbar and Key Lock Submission will be covered. Emphasis will be placed on opening the guard, passing to the Mount position, and executing a submission. Specific training exercises will highlight the Knee on Belly position.

All-Levels:
Open to participants of all experience levels, this class offers a diverse range of techniques, including the Kata Guruma throw, X-Choke from mount, and Bow & Arrow submission from Technical Mount. This week presents an excellent opportunity to expand your skill set and refine existing techniques.

GB2 Advanced:
Tailored for our advanced practitioners, this class covers high-level techniques, starting with a Hand Throw and transitioning to ground techniques like escaping from the Knee on Belly position and executing a Mount Escape to Single Leg X. The class concludes with 5-minute rolls, providing the chance to apply your skills in live training situations.

Word of the Week: Patience

In Jiu-Jitsu, patience is a virtue that plays a crucial role. It teaches us to stay calm, assess situations, and wait for the right moment to execute our moves. Patience in training leads to better decision-making and a deeper understanding of the art. Embrace the journey, and let patience guide you on the mats.

Get ready for a week of intense learning and skill development! See you on the mats, ready to elevate your Jiu-Jitsu game to new heights. Let’s roll!
