Week 11! Ground strike, leg grabs and top guard!

Get ready for an action-packed Week 11 of training! This week promises to be filled with excitement as we dive into some crucial techniques that will take your skills on the mat to the next level.

In this week’s session, we will be focusing on refining our striking abilities by delving into the intricacies of “clocking a punch.” By mastering the art of timing and precision, you’ll learn how to deliver a powerful punch while minimizing your opponent’s opportunities for effective counters. Additionally, we’ll explore the art of countering with a Hip Throw.

Shifting our attention to the sport aspect of the class, we will explore the fascinating world of guard passing. Our primary focus will be on perfecting the “guard opening” technique, a fundamental skill necessary to overcome your opponent’s defensive posture. Moreover, we’ll delve into the nuances of knee slide passing, an advanced maneuver that enables you to smoothly transition past your opponent’s guard and secure a dominant position.

To reinforce these newly acquired techniques, we’ve designed an engaging drill for this week. This drill involves executing an escape from the mount position using a choke and bridge. This exercise will help you sharpen your reflexes, improve your timing, and elevate your overall grappling abilities.

In the GB All-Levels class, get ready to add another potent takedown to your arsenal—the high-crotch double leg takedown. Following the takedown, we will explore a Half-guard pass with the cross face. Finally, we will introduce you to the intricacies of the Kata Gatame, also known as the arm-triangle choke, from side control.

Over at GB2 Advanced class, our focus will be on two essential components: Leg Grabs and the Guard Top Position. We will delve into the Guard Top Position, teaching you how to effectively maintain control and unleash your attacks while on top of your opponent’s guard.

For our young champions in the Tiny Champs class, prepare to master the BullFighter Pass. This technique will enable you to swiftly navigate past your opponent’s guard and establish a dominant position, showcasing your evolving skills and technique.

In the Little Champs and Juniors classes, our focus will be on essential self-defense maneuvers. This week, we will be teaching a Hair Pull Defense technique, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to effectively counter and neutralize an assailant attempting to gain control through a hair pull. Additionally, you will learn a pull-back defense, a crucial maneuver that empowers you to break free from an assailant’s grip and create distance for your safety.

As always, come prepared, bring your enthusiasm, and let’s make the most of our time on the mats!
