GB Technique: Advanced Submissions with Prof. Reginaldo Almeida

This week on GB Technique we are learning some advanced submissions from GB Spring Hill head instructor Prof. Reginaldo Almeida.
As your opponent’s gain experience, it becomes increasingly difficult to catch a submission. The more experienced opponents are not likely to make simple mistakes that expose a submission and they also know the counters to the most common threats.
In a closely contested match, having a lesser known submission could be the difference. These advanced submission variations might give you the advantage in catching your opponent by surprise.
