ALL ABOUT ARMBARS! The Armbar is one of the staples of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and this week we will be discussing several different techniques surrounding both the Armbar and Guard Position. Beginning Monday, we will explore things from a strictly offensive standpoint – breaking our opponent’s posture, securing control of their elbow and getting the tap! We’ll finish class with sweeping our opponent and gaining top position if they defend:

On Wednesday, we’ll introduce one more Armbar option, but spend most of our time working on both defending and escaping the submission. Being in class for both lessons will be extremely helpful in learning all of the details on both sides, so make sure you’re in class!
