Week 6! Headlocks, hip throws and back!

We are excited to present this week’s training curriculum for our dedicated GBK Students. This week, we will delve into the intricacies of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, focusing on fundamental techniques that will enhance your grappling skills. Let’s take a detailed look at the training schedule:

To begin, our instructors will emphasize the importance of the grappler’s stance and posture. You will learn the foundations of a solid stance, which will enable you to maintain balance and control during your engagements on the mats. Developing a strong and balanced posture is crucial for executing effective techniques.

Building upon the groundwork laid with the body lock takedown, our focus will shift towards mastering the art of back escapes. Escaping from the back is an essential skill in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and our experienced instructors will guide you through various techniques to effectively regain control and neutralize your opponent’s advantage.

To further enhance your skills, we have incorporated specific training sessions revolving around the back and Turtle positions. Kids will gain a deeper understanding of how to maintain control, attack, and defend in these strategic situations.

Moving on to our GB1 Fundamentals classes, we will kick off the curriculum by focusing on escaping headlocks. Headlocks can be quite restrictive and limiting, but with the right techniques and strategies, you can free yourself from these compromising positions. Our instructors will demonstrate effective escapes, empowering you with the tools to neutralize headlocks and regain control.

Continuing with the GB1 Fundamentals program, we will explore the art of the armbar. You will learn the proper grips, angles, and leverage needed to apply the armbar successfully. Additionally, our instructors will guide you through the necessary transitions to seamlessly navigate from one position to another.

As we progress throughout the week, our focus will shift towards recovering the guard position from the turtle. Our instructors will provide you with the necessary tools to reestablish a dominant guard position from the turtle, enabling you to launch effective attacks or defend against your opponent’s advances.

Finally, in our GB2 Advanced classes, we will take your skills to the next level. Students will be introduced to the intricacies of executing a hip throw, a dynamic technique that involves sweeping both legs. In the GB2 Advanced program, we will also explore various chokeholds from the turtle position. Chokes are highly effective submissions that can swiftly end a match. You will learn different gripping variations and the correct application of pressure to secure a successful submission from the turtle position.

We are confident that this comprehensive and diverse training curriculum will help you progress in your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey. We encourage you to embrace the challenges, practice diligently, and make the most of each training session.
