UFC 140: Frank Mir Breaks Nogueira’s Arm! (Gracie Breakdown)

December 11th, 2011

“This episode of the Gracie Breakdown is a little longer than usual, but for a VERY good reason, there were simply too many “breakdownable” moments! Ryron and Rener analyze Frank Mir’s impressive Kimura Armlock that broke Nogueira’s arm, and then they dissect Jones’ slick standing Guillotine that put Lyoto Machida to sleep. They also, give honorable demonstrations of the highlights from the TUF 14 Finale including Ferguson’s rolling Omoplata and Brandao’s beautiful armlock from the guard!”

Noguiera’s Shoulder Lock.

December 7th, 2011

Here’s a variation of one of the moves I showed tonight in class at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Van Nuys. This was originally shown to me by one of my former top students, Eddie “Kim” Lee. He came to me from Paragon Jiu Jitsu, where Jiu Jitsu standout, MMA fighter and black belt, Bill “The Grill” Cooper had shown it to him. He literally submitted all the students in the class, and even some of the instructors with it. It was such a good move, I asked him to show it to the rest of the academy.

S’arm-urai: Samurai to Armbar

May 29th, 2011

Here’s a fun little move to show your friends when they say Jiu Jitsu is boring. Mike Frausto and Mike Venturella show how to take the armbar off the Samurai in transition.

Legend has it, we were drilling armbars when I thought to myself. “Armbar from the Ninja? this move might just work.”
I tried to pull off the armbar from the roll to the Twister, but I couldn’t get enough momentum. I asked Mikey “Lobes,” our resident arm snatcher and all around badass, if he could do it. He bypassed the ninja roll, and went straight to the Samurai instead. Genious!. He locked it down, rolled, and BAM! The S’arm-urai was born!

Have fun!
