Week of 11.13.2017 – 11.19.2017

 

BJJ

Fundamentals

  • Low Level Double-Leg Takedown – The double leg is a fundamental takedown in BJJ, and a movement that every practitioner should understand. From a proper wrestling stance, we will focus on changing our level and shooting on our opponent’s legs.
  • Front Choke and Scissor Sweep from Closed Guard – We will begin this week’s class by attacking the front choke from the closed guard. When our opponent moves to block our choke, we will switch to the scissors sweep.

Intermediate

  • Drills: Guard pull, anaconda guard sweep, smash pass to mount
  • Takedown: Guard pull
  • Ground: Bottom of Closed Guard

Remember, all intermediate classes start with a hard drilling session. Please watch the video below for a detailed look at these drills. On the ground, we are learning how to defend the Amassa Pão from the bottom of the closed guard with an armbar series.

Advanced

  • Drills: Guard pull, anaconda guard sweep, smash pass to mount
  • Ground: Bottom of Closed Guard

Remember, all advanced classes start with a hard 25 minute drilling session. There are no videos yet, so please do your research before teaching class. Everyone teaching advanced curriculum should be familiar with these movements. On the ground, we are studying how to pass the open-guard. Focus on forcing half-guard and passing with the long-step, knee slice, and smash pass.

Kickboxing – Teeps and Push Kicks

This week in kickboxing, we will focus on using the teep, which translates to “foot jab” in Thai. The teep is a versatile weapon that can be used for range finding, disruption, off-balance your opponent, or setting up another attack. We will look at the mechanics of this kick then explore the different uses of the teep!

Muay Thai – Leg Kick Offense and Strategy

This week, we will look at leg kick offense, set ups, and follow ups. Learning how to attack the opponent’s legs is a valuable tool that can slow the opponent down, take steam off their strikes, and set us up for a ton of nice follow ups. A hard leg kick is a staple of every good Thai Boxer’s arsenal, and on the other side, building up your legs to take leg kicks is key as well.
