Puppet Master Part 3 and 4

Here’s part 3 and 4 of the Pupper Master Advanced Guard series from Jeff “The Wolverine” Barney. Any Rubber Guard Cops have any problems with this or is Jeff a law abiding citizen? YOU BE THE JUDGE.


Part 3 of our Puppet Master series. We go over a bunch of different set ups for the Rubix Cube including the Golden Arm that I picked up from Jason at www.no-gi-grappling.com. Then we show two new chokes off of the Puppet Master, The Apple Crusher, and the Wolverine-otine. Jeff “The Wolverine” Barney and Felipe Soto from 8th Street Gym in Grand Junction, Colorado.


“In our 4th Puppet Master video we show a new transition from back control to the Puppet Master we call the Riddler. We also show another choke called the Unforgiven, a peruvian necktie variation. Jeff “The Wolverine” Barney, Felipe Soto 8th Street Gym, Grand Junction Colorado.”

    This dude is fucking awesome. His facial hair is fucking awesome, and The Unforgiven is fucking awesome. I’m going to invite him into my community of guys posting weirdo Peruvian variations on YouTube.

  2. Hmmmm…I’m never one to deny legitimacy to a sub or position but, like Eddie says to the rest of us. Put in some serious numbers and TAP guys with what you have come up with (and not day 1 whitebelts). Make sure there is no holes in the game. This Wolverine guy seems cool and I respect that he has knowledge of the system.
    I also believe that it is far fetched moves that deter people from using the 10PJJ system. Even though some of the moves can appear advanced in 10PJJ. All are pretty much cut and dry techniques.

    After watching the puppet master series I think I’m going to try it out sparring. I seem to end up in a lot of these positions where it’s available pyramid, four corners top et cetera. They seem cool to me, and definitely have open minds.

    My brother is a good wrestler who has very good submission defense. The last time I rolled with him I was able to use the Riddler set up to get him in the Puppet Master. He wouldn’t tap to the Face Vice, but the Wolverine-otine got the tap.

    Wolverine: When is going to be ready the Puppet Master 5?

  7. Wolverine says:

    I’m out of town but will be home monday night. Going to be pretty busy when I get home, but I will try to get all of the new stuff videoed as soon as possible. Part 5 will be a couple more new set ups. Parts 6 and 7 will be dealing with opponents who counter all of the set ups or manage to start to escape the Puppet Master.

  8. i think wolverine should roll with jerome and puppet master him!!

  9. Wolverine says:

    I don’t think I’m anywhere near Jerome’s level jiu jitsu wise, but I would love to to train with him.

  10. Wolverine says:

    I’d love to train with any of the 10th Planet guys, hopefully when we get our gym moved into our new location we can start having some of you guys our for seminars.

    Seriously cool shit. Can’t wait to start playing with it. One dimension to add to this; I often get a move I learned called Threading the Needle from the back which is very similar to this series. Essentially you extend the foot that is hooked in your opponent’s elbow and pull his wrist tight effectively executing an arm crush. Should work from alot of these positions. Worth messing around with.

    Ya dude.I love the puppet master moves. Can’t wait for 5,6, and 7. At first it was easy to catch the people I roll with, now they are catching on to some of the set ups. Good thing that the Sanitarium is close by. Keep them guessing. Can’t wait for the ones.


  13. Wolverine says:

    Some of the new setups are a little bit sneakier like the Riddler. I find that when doing the other old set ups on someone who knows the Rubix Cube is comming they will often throw themselves into something else when defending, Sanitarium, a Triangle, Gogoplata or omaplata.
