RGPD: Erik Paulson Breaks The Lockdown

February 28th, 2009 In 10th planet police | 12 Comments

“The “Lockdown”, known more generically as the “Scorpion Lock” has become a very popular and effective base of operations from the Half Guard. On three separate occasions I asked Sensei Paulson how he would counter this style of half guard and this was perhaps his most thorough, set of options.

In the future, Dr. Sick will revisit Breaking the Lockdown and try to consolidate a couple of the other options shown during other sessions with Sensei Paulson.”

Im a hapkido practitioner but very interested in MMA.
Im a fan of eddie bravo and im using the eddie bravo half guard game as much as possible.

In the second match you can see me using the rubberguard with a terrible flexibillity on my side, ending up in an omoplata! 5:14″

My New Card

November 14th, 2008 In News | 7 Comments

Here’s my new card. I had my good friend Jo-S hook up the graphic design. He’s an art director at a firm that does all the DVD covers and Movie posters. I thought that it was pretty special. What do you guys think?

Here’s the deal… You pay me money, I teach you 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu. Seems like a fair trade to me right? I know what I’m doing, I have experience, I’m talented and I’m fun to hang out with.

Eddie Bravo: The Electric Chair Half Guard Sweep/Submission

This is probably my best half guard sweep. I hit this more than anything. There are a lot of options if one chooses to go to Stoner Control from it; I’m partial to the calf crank.
