I really enjoyed being the demonstration partner in these videos about escaping from side mount! http://blog.infighting.ca/ultimate-system-escaping-bottom-cross-side/
Hey everybody, Richie Yip here. We are talking about probably the #1 problem in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, how to escape bottom cross side. I’m going to show you the system that I use and that my students use to “dominate” from this super tough bottom position. You’re going to learn how timing is everything. And …

Did you catch this interview? It was fun to do and a lot of people seem to have liked it too...
I've just released the latest podcast (episode 35), featuring an interview with Mr Kurt Osiander. Kurt is an old-school BJJ black belt under Ralph Gracie. He's known for his no BS communication style, his informative Youtube instructional videos, and his swearing (this interview is definitely not for the ears of little children or the overly sensitive). The topics we cover include... Old school Ralph Gracie training tactics The attributes that m...

The concept of disrupting alignment before you go for your real attack...
When you first learn an sweep or a submission from the guard you usually learn the steps in a 1, 2, 3 manner. 'First grab the sleeve and lapel like this... Then open your legs and escape your hips... Now put your foot on the hip and pull him forward....' And so on Then you go ahead, learn all the steps, and get your repetitions in. You do all the prep work. But then, when you try to use it against your sparring partner, it all goes to hell. He s...

Terrible. Price gouging combined with high pressure sales tactics. First these pirates come and charge me $550 to switch out a $10 thermocouple and install a $20 thermostat (which took about 30 minutes). Then as soon as their service guy leaves their salesman comes by and tries to give me a scare-tactic high-pressure close on buying a new furnace from them right away. Threatens to shut off my furnace and report me to the authorities unless I pay them to do more work on my furnace. I'd rather heat my house with my electric stove for the whole winter than call these guys again.
