Recent lessons have focused strongly on Mount escapes and Mount retention – however, we are also looking at armbars. It’s so important to control someone’s posture before attempting to finish a submission.
The Mount escape techniques we are majoring on are the elbow escape and a modified version of the classic trap and roll. There are so many steps and stages – and we are spending a lot of time drilling slowly and refining our technique.
All of the techniques we teach can be performed wearing a Gi or without – making our Jiu Jitsu very versatile.
If you have ever wanted to learn Gracie Jiu Jitsu – we offer one, two and four lessons a week membership options. We are based just outside Kingston in Long Ditton and there is plenty of parking. You can join the 7-8.15 class or the 8.45-10. The first three lessons are free as a trial so you can get a good appreciation of our teaching methodology and our style of Jiu Jitsu.
Our interest is self-defence and we constantly work from a standing position – also of course, spending a lot of time developing our groundwork.
