Move of the week for 9/11 professor easton demonstrates

Fundamentals Ground: Maintaining 100k and two ways to mount

Maintaining side control is done by resting your weight on your partner with good balance, while you block their escape paths. Sometimes you block their escape routes by carefully placing your hand or knee by their hip, and sometimes you thwart their escape by re-positioning your body as they attempt to get out. Neither method involve trying to forcibly hold your partner down. Side control isn’t just about controlling your opponent, it is about allowing them to tire themselves out while you stay safe and slowly advance your position. If you are practicing this correctly, your partner will be exhausted afterwards while you will be relatively ready to go.

You don’t want to get into the habit of hanging out in guard waiting for something to happen. The set up for fan sweep gives you the space and energy needed to start attacking. Sometimes you will get the initial sweep. Often times it will take a little work going back and forth between the sweep and the kimura before you get one or the other. Make sure you are not forcing either one. Your partners response will dictate which technique is going to work.
 WORD OF CAUTION FOR BOTH PARTNERS: BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN EITHER YOU ARE UP ON YOUR ARM OR YOUR PARTNER IS. Be aware of the people practicing next to you as well. It takes at least two people not paying attention to get injured
Every week, we post our jiu jitsu technique videos that demonstrate the maneuver and skills you would learn while studying jiu jitsu at Easton BJJ. If you would like to learn jiu jitsu in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Denver or any of our other locations, contact us today.
