Jon Thomas breaks down how to do the BJJ hip bump sweep, when to use it, and how to connect it to other attacks. This is an excerpt from The Closed Guard System https://www.grapplearts.com/closedguard
How to actually successfully choke someone out with the cross collar choke from closed guard. Excerpt from https://www.grapplearts.com/closedguard The Closed Guard System, a step-by-step formula for developing a KILLER closed guard by Jon Thomas!
Two of the keys that Jon demonstrates in this video include getting your first grip in at the right angle, and then genuinely attacking with other attacks (sweeps, armbars, triangle chokes, etc) so that he breaks his defensive arm structure and gives you that opening to sink your second grip into position. I think this approach will allow you to finish a LOT more people with this classic choke.
Today’s video is a quick video about how BJJ Black Belts get their stripes and promotions.
So in the video I share the basics of how I’ve been promoted and how the common stripe/belt promotion practice takes place for Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black Belts. Now, I’m sure some systems could be different than the one I outline here. But this is the basic time requirements I’m familiar with and have been exposed to in my training.
Here’s a blog post with the chart that I was going off of: https://www.chewjitsu.net/2021/05/how-do-bjj-black-belts-get-their-stripes-promotions/
In the video I also share how old I’ll be when I can get the Red/Black and the final Red Belt of Jiu-jitsu. Since I was promoted to Black Belt when I was 26, I’ll be eligible for the final rank of BJJ when I am 89 years old.
. . . Let’s see if I even make that.
Anyways, hope the video was useful to you or at the very least maybe slightly entertaining based on how old I’ll be to get a Red Belt.
