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

22/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | de la Riva sweeps (Lilo Asensi)

Class #883
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Lilo Asensi, Heidelberg, Germany, 22/08/2017

Lilo is one of Ana Yagues' training partners in Hamburg: both of them are cool Spanish black belts teaching in Germany. Lilo also taught a similar position as Ana did back at the Bournemouth Camp, focusing on de la Riva. I always make a beeline for classes taught by female black belts, as they are invariably smaller than the men teaching. That means they are closer to my body type, so their games tend to fit better for me. Lilo proved that to be true once again, especially as she was an excellent teacher. Even though her English is still developing, she got her points across clearly and memorably.

Beginning with the usual sweep where you pull their arm under their leg and then grab their shoulder to roll them over, Lilo continued to build. If they post with their arm to prevent the roll, grip their other arm and shift over, kicking up into a triangle. If they free both arms, you can go behind them, reach for their leg and kick into the back. If you can't reach that other leg when you move behind them, push into the back of the first leg, then grip their far leg and roll over (this is known as a 'baby bolo', apparently).
