Trapping the Arm From the Back. Gracie Style!

May 21st, 2011 In Techniques | Comments Off

This video goes right into what we’ve been learning at 10th Planet Jiu JItsu Van Nuys lately. My strategy as of late is so basic, it gets me sick. It’s to get on to the chest to the back, get the hooks, maintain and recover my positioning if necessary, trap an arm, get under the chin, and finish the RNC! You’d think it was just that easy, but it seems like most people want to immediately get the choke. Position + Patients is usually the key for me.

I always love watching the new generation Gracie boys. They’re passion and enthusiastic about the sport. It is a refreshing change from some of the dry, super serious instructors out there. It’s Jiu Jitsu, have some fun!

Here, Ryron and Rener are teaching an awesome way to chain two (3 if you count the lapel choke) common attacks. IMHO, repping moves like this over and over lead to a high rate of success. I’m all about efficiency.
