Focus of the Week – Martial Arts Curriculum

Week of  3.26.2018 – 3.32.2018

Maintaining Mount

BJJ

Fundamentals – undefined

  • Front Bear Hug Defense – This week we will focus on defending a bear hug from the front by fighting for double underhooks and then moving to the low back clinch position.
  • Maintaining Mount and Attacks – This week we are focusing on how to attack from the top of the mount. First, we must understand how to maintain the mount, and then we will look at a basic cross choke and armbar.

Intermediate

  • Drills: Push/pull stance drill, russian drill, arm drag drill, post drill, and De la Riva to anaconda guard to 1 leg X-guard sweep
  • Takedown: Side clinch trip backwards
  • Ground: Passing Closed Guard

Remember, all intermediate classes start with a hard drilling session. This week focus on setting up the russian tie, the push/pull wrestling stance drill, the arm drag drill, post drill to the side clinch and tripping our opponent backwards, and transitioning from DLR to anaconda guard to 1 leg X-guard. Please watch the video below for a detailed look at these drills. On the ground, we are studying passing the closed guard. Students will stand in the closed guard controlling the sleeve, break the guard, and pass by forcing half guard and hugging the head of their opponent. Finish class with positional training from closed guard.

Advanced

  • Drills: Guard pull to sleeve and collar guard, triangle, armbar and omoplata drills
  • Ground: Attacking from the open 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 attack using the spider guard, the De La Riva gaurd and the inverted DLR. Make sure there is at least 45 minutes of training in every advanced class.

Kickboxing – Boxing

This week in Kickboxing L1, we will be focusing on the “Sweet Science!” We will examine the similarities and the differences between traditional boxing and boxing for Kickboxing/Muay Thai. Let’s work on getting a mean jab this week!

Muay Thai – Clinch and Grappling

This week is a continuation of clinch from last week’s classes. We will review and drill the techniques from last week as a warm up into live rounds! As a friendly reminder, please no jewelry in class, especially during clinch week! Also, don’t forget to have a mint before class, we will be getting close to our teammates this week!

Thoughts

On the Importance of Taking Action

“Take action. Every story you’ve ever been connected with, every leader you have ever admired, every puny little thing that you have ever accomplished is the result of taking action. You have a choice: you can either be a passive victim of circumstance, or the active hero of your own life.” – Bradley Whitford
