Week 2: Mastering Headlocks, Throws, and Side Control Escapes

As we dive into another exciting week of training, let’s explore what’s in store for our students in the Gracie Barra Curriculum:

Tiny Champions (3-4 years old) and Little Champions 1:

  • In Class A, our youngest warriors will focus on building a solid base and learning self-defense techniques to defend themselves.
  • In Class B, they’ll delve into the art of outside hook takedowns or Osoto Gari. On the ground, they’ll work on recovering closed guard from bottom side control.

Little Champions 2 and Juniors:

  • Both classes will emphasize the importance of maintaining a good base and what to do when pushed to the ground in Class A.
  • In Class B, students will refine their outside hook takedown skills. Additionally, they’ll learn basic escapes from bottom side control to bolster their ground game.

Fundamentals Class for Adults:

  • Class A will focus on essential self-defense techniques, including escaping from a side standing headlock. On the ground, students will learn the intricacies of recovering closed guard from side mount.
  • In Class B, participants will hone their skills in escaping a rear headlock with a takedown and exploring various methods of escaping side control.

All Levels and Advanced Classes:

  • Students in both classes will delve into the art of hip or hand throws, mastering the intricacies of these dynamic techniques. On the ground, they’ll explore various ground techniques handpicked by our knowledgeable professors.
  • Each class will conclude with specific training drills, providing opportunities for focused practice and skill refinement.

We’re thrilled to embark on this week’s journey of learning and growth with all of you. Let’s step onto the mats with determination and enthusiasm, ready to elevate our skills and deepen our understanding of the art of Jiu-Jitsu!
