This week during our Jiu Jitsu Classes at the Cage JSA for Gi and No Gi training, we will look at 2 major Jiu Jitsu techniques, and explore variations / combinations from these techniques.

The first Jiu Jitsu technique is a Japanese Jujitsu or Judo technique that you will find in our white belt charts in Kokubai Jujitsu: Kosoto Gake.  It is sometimes called “major outside hook” or outside leg trip; but it is one of the first and most effective takedowns you can learn in Jiu Jitsu.  It is effective for Gi, No Gi Grappling or MMA.

From the Kosoto Gake, we’ll also explore passing the guard with the over under guard pass principles, as well as fighting from the bottom to recover half guard, then to deep half guard.

In our Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes, Diogo “Moreno” Araujo will showing Spider Guard sweep and submissions.  The spider guard is a powerful guard position that gives you a lot of control over your opponent’s posture and arms.  Having a good grip, with a “push-pull” feel is important for dominating from the spider guard position.  Moreno loves the spider guard, and has a lot of great details on how to finish.

You’ll learn these 2 jiu jitsu techniques in our classes in Cromwell, CT at the Cage JSA.  If you are new to Jiu Jitsu, don’t worry!  In our BJJ and No Gi Classes, we start slow and introduce Jiu Jitsu to our students the right way. Many students worry that they won’t know what they are doing their first jiu jitsu class – that’s ok!  ALLLL of our students had to start from the beginning.  That is why we pride ourselves for helping new students learn the incredible art of Jiu Jitsu.
