Gracie Barra – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – Martial Arts – Jiu-Jitsu for everyone – Master Carlos Gracie Jr. http://graciebarra.com Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone Tue, 22 Aug 2017 20:39:27 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.1 Advanced Side Control Chokes http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gb-learning/advanced-side-control-chokes-2/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gb-learning/advanced-side-control-chokes-2/#respond Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:34:46 +0000 http://graciebarra.com/?p=28567 This week Gracie Barra looks at advanced choke attacks from the side control position.

Note that most of these attacks are against an opponent with a strong defense in the bottom of side control. When the opponent’s arms are in a solid, defensive frame, it can be very difficult to find an opening to attack.

4 videos by GB instructors teach you some ideas on how to attack the choke.

Speaking Their Language: GBK Teaching Vocabulary and Commands http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gbk-teaching/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gbk-teaching/#respond Sat, 19 Aug 2017 16:49:47 +0000 http://graciebarra.com/?p=27339

Have you ever heard of the phrase, Kids say the darndest things!? The kids in our schools might sometimes seem like they have a language all their own – full of trends, slang, and just their youthful jokes and goofy phrases. And while we might not always understand the phrases they are playfully throwing around, we have to make sure that we choose our words wisely.

The training environment you build for your GBK students must evolve around the essential elements of the GB Method. We have already looked at many of these – the GBK Curriculum, GBK Uniform, and the GBK Belt System and Attendance Cards. These are in a way the physical things of our schools – they represent the things we wear, the coursework we follow, and the tools we use. Sometimes don’t realize just how important our communication is to our training and building of amazing schools.

GBK Teaching Vocabulary and Commands

In order to provide the best possible training environment for our youngest students, it is imperative that we know how to best communicate with them. Our GBK Teaching Vocabulary and Commands include communication strategies and techniques that are essential to building that positive training environment. You have to be able to share your knowledge and reach the minds and hearts of the next generation of Jiu-Jitsu artists. We do this with 3 core strategies for complete communication.

The Positional Hierarchy – Your First Year of Training http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/the-positional-hierarchy/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/the-positional-hierarchy/#respond Sat, 19 Aug 2017 16:11:34 +0000 http://www.graciebarra.com/?p=23253 One of the students at my home academy is a competitor who comes from a striking background.
Well conditioned and coordinated, he is progressing very quickly since he started training bjj in the kimono 4 months ago.

He asked me at the end of class last week if I would recommend that he start to focus on becoming really good at a certain position or submission. Developing his “A game” as bjj guys like to refer to it.

1472824_640136866009760_670438349_nI told him that would likely happen anyway. That he would naturally gravitate towards certain positions that fit his attributes and developing game.

Read also:Top Game or Bottom Game?

Instead I recommended that he concentrate on getting all of his positions down in the “Positional hierarchy”.

The Positional Hierarchy:
Rear Mount
Mount
14735504865_63966541bf_zKnee on Belly
Side Control
Half Mount
Guard Top / Guard Bottom
Turtle Top / Turtle Bottom
Half Guard Bottom
Side Control Bottom
Knee on Belly Bottom
Mount Bottom
Rear Mount Bottom

A list of the major positions in jiu-jitsu organized from worst to best, or maybe more accurately, from least to most dominant.

Looking at the list together with the student I would ask the following questions about each position:

1) Do you know when you are in each position at any point in the match? Can we stop the video of your roll at any point and you identify which of the positions you are in?

1609594_10153732449510710_938452574_n2) If you are in a dominant position:
~ How is your opponent trying to escape?
~ How do you control the position?
~ What are your submissions from there?
~ How do you enter into this dominant position? ex. move from side mount to mount?

3) If you are in an inferior / defensive position:
~ How do you escape?
~ Which submissions do you have to defend / counter?
~ How can you move or progress your bad position to the next higher position? ex. move from half guard to full guard?

1795772_10153875151175710_255238481_nBefore thinking of delving deep into a certain position (ex. learning everything in the spider guard) you need to know what to do in every and all of the major positions in the hierarchy. It does you little good to have 5 techniques from omoplata if you have zero ways to escape the mount!

In order to have a productive roll, you have to have knowledge of what you should do in each position or you will be stuck, not knowing what to do or resorting to using pure strength to try to survive.

The Gracie Barra curriculum is designed to systematically teach students all of the positions (both top and bottom!) for each of the major positions.

CIGB – DIA 1: O LEGADO GB http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/o-legado-gb/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/o-legado-gb/#respond Fri, 11 Aug 2017 05:03:53 +0000 http://graciebarra.com/?p=28520 1˚ dia da CIGB.

Be An Ambassador For Jiu-jitsu http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gb-learning/be-an-ambassador-for-jiu-jitsu/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/gb-learning/be-an-ambassador-for-jiu-jitsu/#respond Wed, 09 Aug 2017 04:41:04 +0000 http://graciebarra.com/?p=28513 Since the early days of Brazilian jiu-jitsu first spreading outside the country of origin Brasil and throughout the world, jiu-jitsu culture has evolved along with the techniques of the art themselves.

The Gracie Barra philosophy of “Jiu-jitsu for everyone” is a significant factor behind the world wide expansion of the art. In the earlier days of jiu-jitsu in North America, BJJ was synonymous with “No Holds Barred”, the “Vale Tudo” fighting roots in Brasil.

The first wave of jiu-jitsu schools were filled with tough guys with cauliflower ears and intensely competition oriented.

While these academies produced legitimately tough guys they were also limited. The GB Instructors course describes this approach as “Jiu-jitsu for a few.” Unfortunately, jiu-jitsu suffered from an image problem in Brasil in the early days as a number of jiu-jitsu fighters were involved in violent street confrontations.

Since those early days and through the efforts of jiu-jitsu’s senior leaders and visionaries, jiu-jitsu has evolved to be the martial art that millions of people are enjoying all over the world. Master Carlos Gracie Jr. boldly expressed his vision to see a Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu academy in every city in the world.

An Important part of this growth of jiu-jitsu is….YOU!

Yes, the individual student of jiu-jitsu is important in terms of being an ambassador for the art of jiu-jitsu. As you meet people in other areas of your social life, you will be the first exposure for them that jiu-jitsu even exists. People will form an impression of jiu-jitsu largely based on how you represent yourself and the art.

Speaking postively about the benefits of training; the health benefits that one enjoys from the jiu-jitsu lifestyle: the satisfaction of meeting the challenges of learning jiu-jitsu all go a long ways to growing interest in jiu-jitsu.

In the back of the mind of many jiu-jitsu students is that they have found an activity that has improved their lives and they wish to share what they have discovered with others.

Your enthusiasm for and positive representation of jiu-jitsu may influence someone to try a class. If they stick to it, you have yet another valuable training partner!

The more new people who become students, the stronger and healthier the academy. The academy is now able to offer more class times, perhaps even expand to a bigger mat space and nicer facility with every amenity.

Grandmaster Carlos Gracie has a list of beliefs that he called the Commandments of Jiu-jitsu. Some of these ideas are important for those students who wish to represent jiu-jitsu in a positive way.

“- Talk to all people about happiness, health, and prosperity
– Think only about the best, work only for the best, and always expect the best.

– Be as just and enthusiastic about others victories as you are with yours.”

How can you be an ambassador for Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu?

GB Techniques: Triangle Choke From The Guard http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/choke-from-the-guard/ http://graciebarra.com/gb-news/choke-from-the-guard/#respond Sat, 05 Aug 2017 04:28:48 +0000 http://graciebarra.com/?p=27539 This week Gracie Barra Techniques brings you some videos on many setups for the triangle choke from the guard. Subscribe to the Gracie Barra YouTube channel to be notified of new video techniques.

A triangle choke from the guard is the way most of us first learn the triangle. There are many creative ways to enter into that same triangle choke. Check out how GB instructors teach how to catch the triangle from the guard.

1) The Triangle from Spider
* Note how the sweep forces the opponent to put his hand on the mat and leaves the opening to attack the triangle.

2) Cross Guard & Triangle Choke
When yoiu opponent counters your armlock from the guard, Prof. Flavio Almeida teaches how to transition to the triangle.

3)Triangle choke set up from closed guard using belt control
Control of the belt halps keep the posture of the opponent broken and easier to catch the triangle.

4)Triangle to counter the guard pass /Triângulo partindo da guarda aberta
This triangle entry counters one fo the most common ways your opponent will try to pass your guard.

5)From back to guard triangle / Triângulo partindo das costas
Technically, this triangle starts on the back and finishes int he guard…but it is so awesome we needed to include it on this list!
