We’re spending a huge amount of time developing our closed guard – working hard at killing our opponent’s posture. For us, ultimate BJJ self-defence starts and ends with the closed guard – educating our bodies to deflect power, finding angles, removing defences, shifting our opponents around with clever use of body mechanics. Re-directing, neutralising our opponent’s strength. Destroying our opponent’s posture gives us our submissions – but we go beyond that, making our attacks tough to defend.
The team’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training is presently focused on both the closed guard and sweeps. The sweeps that really work under pressure. Come along to our fundamentals class on Mondays to learn how to keep someone in closed guard – learn the triangle, arm bar and Kimura. We’ll teach you how to defend yourself – come and meet the team in Kingston – get fit, healthy and learn a new skill.
