Move of the Week for 7/9 – Parrying and Basic Frame
Move of the Week for 7/9/12 – This week, Professor Easton demonstrates some great technique with his key to striking as well as an excellent explanation of the basic frame and pummel.
Parrying and Covering Jab/Crosses/and Round Punches
The power in a strike comes from the body, not the arm. As you watch Professor Easton demonstrate the strikes, notice how on every one his hips moves. The only strike where he isn’t turning his foot is the jab, but even then, you’ll see he extends his shoulder to put more power into it. When you put your whole body into a strike, it’s that much more powerful.
Blocking the arm closest to your head is paramount. If you fail to do so, you’ll be in sorry shape, and it’ll make your life much more difficult. You should also try to make the part where you come out from under your opponent as smooth as possible to keep him from having time to react.
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.
