In December, I traveled to Mirco Wendt’s Academy, Monkey Gym Schwerte, to teach a 2 Day Seminar for just the Academy Students.
It was on Pressure & Control: two aspects of grappling and fighting that I feel are not really focused on or understood anymore.
This is how Mirco described it after:
Roy emphasized Jiu Jitsu is the art of control and not the art of Submission.
One of the main tools for control is pressure, so Roy covered the fundamentals for that kind of game, like proper weight placement, body misalignment, air restriction and more…
We were all amazed cause we we had never experienced that kind of pressure before. Great thing about that approach is, the top game player almost never used lots of strength or grips, instead it was absolute effortless to control the bottom person with correct alignment of the own body, misalignment of the opponents body and weight distribution.
What I as a plus 40 year old bjj hobbyist love about that kind of game is, you can play it as young gun, but also as a matured grappler over 40/50, because it doesn’t depend on attributes like strength or flexibility: everybody can do it.
Perfectly in relation to sustainability and longevity, great for self defense, competition or mma.
And, in a personal Message, he told me the immediate success he had with what he learned:
“Hey mate. We played with the “Pressure” game… it is so fantastic.
We rolled for control and I tapped the guys only with pressure and control and without Submissions ?
This happened never before although I am training for almost 10 years now. Thanks a lot for all the gold nuggets.
We really could up our games again after your seminar”
Contact me if you wish to schedule a seminar with me.
I will be putting these details and concepts and techniques and many more into my upcoming Pressure and Control DVD going soon
