Hip Tilt. John Wayne. Crowbar Sweep. All those names are used to identify one of my favorite sweeps, but in my mind, I think of it simply as the precursor to destruction. Wonder why? It&rsqu&hell…Read More

About two years ago, I had the opportunity to train for several weeks with Fabricio Bicudo. He’s one of those old skool jiu-jitsu players. In fact, when I met him, he had already spent… Read More

More than once in the past, I’ve yapped about how important the cross collar grip is for maintaining control in the omoplata. (No other grip effortlessly kills almost all escape attemp… Read More

In the heavier divisions, more than once, I’ve seen a certain tactic. A guy will feed his arm inside the legs… Yup. One arm in, one arm out. It’s the breaking of a fundame… Read More

Recently, I started re-reading Mindset by Carol Dweck. It’s one of my favorite books in the world, and I consider it to be required reading for anyone who is serious about excelling in… Read More

I LOATHE being stacked. It’s not even because I’m uncomfortable. No. I can hang out there all day. But if I get stacked, it means that I done fugked up. I made some small error s… Read More

Not that many years ago, the most common methodology for finishing the triangle required that you lift your hips, pass the arm across, and pull down on the head. It was gospel. Hell, you can… Read More

Since its inception, I’ve made radical changes to the micro adjustments course. The last being the restriction of content to just 15 lessons at any one time. It’s not something t… Read More

Lemme tell you about the perils of soul crushing shoulder pressure. Back when I was coming up, there was a black belt (and he’s still around) who was infamous for his ability to put pe… Read More

Following up from yesterday: I’ve had the opportunity now to test out the double palm down cross choke, and it works. Yes, yes indeed, it does. In fact, it took almost no strength at a… Read More
