We are very excited about the upcoming release of the Headhunter Instructional series.  This has been two years in the making and really more like a lifetime in it’s creation.  The Headhunter is a video instructional series to be released by the Jiu-Jitsu Brotherhood this Fall.  It will be around three hours of detailed instruction on my choking system.  We show triangle chokes from every possible position / the Kraken Choke / the Head Lopper Choke / Baseball chokes /Ninja chokes / Cryangles and all kinds of great ninja moves!  This instructional will be chocked to the brim with great content.  We also show every move at multiple angles / with close ups / slow motion / and with detailed onscreen instructions.  The editing is off the hook! We’ve even included a segment with supporting stretches and details to develop the skills to maximize the techniques.  Get ready Ninja the Headhunter is coming soon!

The Four Main Positions of BJJ


The four main positions:  Guard, Side Mount, Mount and Back serve as your “sign posts” when you’re grappling.  They act as a hierarchy, with each position improving your chances of a submission.  A good rule of thumb is, “position before submission.”  In other words, your probability of getting a submission from a “bad position” is very low. You’re always seeking the guard, side, mount or back.  These positions offer a safety net (your pretty safe in your 4-main positions) and they expose your partners limbs / or neck.  Think of it this way (by the way this is how we teach it to kids), if you were in the open ocean swimming you would at risk for a shark attack.   Your 4-main positions are your islands.  If you get to an island you are safe from an attack.   The video below shows examples of the four main positions.  Now stay away from those sharks!

Animal Movement Workout for Grapplers


In this video we take you through a complete movement based routine for grapplers. We start with a light warm up and move into mat drills and then animal movements. These are all functional movements specifically for BJJ / grapplers. All you need is just a little mat space or outside on the sand or grass. Have fun and happy training ninjas!
