This website is about Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ). I'm a purple belt who started in 2006, teaching and training at Artemis BJJ in Bristol, UK. All content ©2004-2016 Can Sönmez

12/04/2016 - Open Mat | Leglocks

Class #712
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 12/04/2016

The 50/50 guard break wasn't working for me, as Simon just rotated rather than his guard opening. Am I missing a bit? Perhaps grabbing the gi in a certain way or something? On the nasty calf leglock, that needs to be in the middle of their calf, plenty of meat. You can't get enough calf muscle if you go too low on the leg.

I also got to have a play with technical mount as Mike wanted to work on holding it. Underneath I was either pushing the leg or rotating under for deep half. On top, I kept going for the arm, always trying to attack. I think that might be part of why Mike was having some trouble maintaining it on top, it was a little static and I wasn't under threat, which gives me time to work my defence.
