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

22/02/2019 - Friday blue belt + class, knee cut pass and follow ups

Class #1117
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 22/02/2019

Today I went through those follow ups Donal taught me, which I have been calling the 'leg squish pass'. You wriggle your hips around their knee if they get it in the way, then sprawl on their legs like a frog. Focus your weight through your hips, pressing into the middle of their thigh. You can then move behind them, either waiting for them to move you, or replacing your hip pressure with your hand and moving behind.

I also got in some training myself, continuing my regular drilling (this time with Kirsty, as either she or Josh have been popping in to drill with me at least once a week). Most useful take away this time was on bringing the legs back in Priit's open guard if they get behind you. Your legs reach back, but your butt stays on the ground. That means they can't stack you on your neck, as you take the weight on your legs, not your neck/shoulders. Very important distinction, I will keep drilling that.
