This Shoulder Crunch Sweep is So Effortless You Might Giggle

What's up guys, Today I'm going to show you guys a sweep in BJJ that I'm really enjoying and have been working on recently. Many of you guys have watched my Giggler Sweep video, and many people love using the Shoulder Crunch to sweep your opponent and get on top. In this video, I'll show you how I use one to set up the other in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Then, show you how to off-balance your opponent constantly and transition from both sweeping positions. This is one of my favorite half-guard attacks, and if you like either sweep in isolation, then I think you'll like the ideas in this video when they're used in conjunction with each other. Thanks for watching! Below are the resources and videos mentioned during the technical demonstration.

The Best BJJ Style for Big Guys with Bad Takedowns & Wrestling

Today's video comes from a guy who has a match coming up against someone with better takedowns than him who has beaten him once before. He's looking on some ideas on how to get the win against the competitor in their upcoming BJJ superfight. In the video I'll talk about the challenge he faces, which many big people in BJJ face. Which is, he likes playing top game but has bad takedowns. His gym also doesn't do much standing work either. The video will outline one of the best competition styles for Jiu-jitsu for someone with these sorts of issues. Below are the resources talked about in the video.

16 Year Old Wants his 1st MMA Fight (Mom Won’t Let Him)

What's up guys, today we've got a question from a 16-year-old boy who wants to do his first MMA fight. He's been training kickboxing for about 10 years and recently started BJJ. The young man says he needs to prove something to himself, so he wants to try a Mixed Martial Arts fight out. He passes this idea by his mom and she is not too keen on the idea. She does not want him to fight and this clearly does not make the young man happy. He sends a message asking what he can do to convince his mother to allow it. Honestly, there's probably nothing you're going to do to convince a mother to allow you to fight. It's natural. Even my own mother hated watching my MMA fights, let alone my Wrestling or Jiu-Jitsu matches. Now, what I would say is this: It's not the time for you to fight yet. There are pros and cons to doing it, but there will always be time to do it. Take that time. Develop your skills, get older/stronger, get more competition experience in Kick Boxing and Jiu-Jitsu, etc. I'll dive deeper into why you should take your time a bit more in the video above and give you a couple ideas to chew on. Hopefully, you found this video helpful.

Black Belt Injures Black Belt with a "Safe" Submission

Today we've got a question from a BJJ Black Belt in his late 30s, Bob, who was training with another Black Belt, who was in his early 20s. While they were rolling at Jiu-Jitsu practice the Young, competitive, Black Belt caught Bob in an Arm Bar. As Bob was working to defend, the Young Black Belt tried his hardest to break the grip with 20 seconds left, and all of a sudden Bob tore his peck. Now, Bob needs surgery & it will be 8-12 months before he's back on the mats. He wants to know what my perspective on the situation is, if he should be pissed at the young Black Belt, etc. In this video, I'll address this "safe submission" in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that got Bob injured & dive into why I would not call it "safe". I'll also give you guys a training tip that will make you a better finisher in competition & help you keep your training partners healthy when you finish submissions.

Do We "Coddle" Women Too Much in BJJ ?

Do We "Coddle" Women Too Much in BJJ ?

Today we've got a question from a female grappler who says she's been training for a while & recently saw a post by a male black belt saying: "Women don't need to be coddled in Jiu-jitsu. Train with men and learn to beat them with hard work & discipline." She sends the message & asks what I think about it. The post made her feel weird and alienated to a degree. She's not sure if she's taking it to heart, or just looking at it the wrong way. First off, I'd say that it's best to take any social media post with a grain of salt. This is coming from me, a guy whose job is in social media. As far as this idea of coddling women in BJJ, be warned this is going to piss someone off, I'll dive deep into it in this video. I'll be coming from the standpoint of training in general, with a male or female, and how you should (in my opinion) treat your rolls in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Hopefully, you found this video & my answer helpful.

All The Greatest in BJJ, Wrestling & Judo Do This. . .

So, recently I posted a video where I was talking about the Meta in Jiu- Jitsu (Here: https://youtu.be/amAv2DVbrTs) where I answered questions from a few younger guys at ADCC Trials. A fella commented to the video (and I'm paraphrasing here): "Hey, love the videos, been watching you for years. I think I have to slightly disagree on you with this one. I agree that being lean, fit, and strong will help you in Jiu-Jitsu and this can be taken for granted in all Martial Arts. If we're looking to analyze trends in the technical game in modern Jiu-Jitsu, then that's a different question in general. I would argue that the technical meta in martial arts, including BJJ, is niche specialization. Becoming a master of lesser-known positions and force your opponents to play where they're really weak or inexperienced." I totally agree with everything this viewer says. This has been an early Idea that I've been talking about forever, in regard to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It's super important to have a narrowly focused area of Jiu-Jitsu, where you're extremely competent and maybe even master level at. In this video I'll talk about how some of the best guys in Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, or Wrestling who get known for a set few techniques. Anyways, I'll dive deep into the topic of specialization of this video and what I mean by "Meta" in this video.
