It’s been roughly two weeks since my last update from the mats of EKBJJ, many things have been going on which has reduced my ability to be prompt with my learning updates in the art of Gracie Jiu-jitsu. However, i still made some notes along the way.
We have been looking at more head lock escapes, which enabled us to move into positions to potentially take the back and execute a rear naked choke.
Details here were partly recap of previously taught lessons and details of improving your positioning on someones back as to not fall off when they try to get you off.
Professor also went over the details of executing a rear naked choke, a criticism the Professor picked up on when observing the class.
Professor concluded that week with other variations on escaping the head lock and ending the sequence of moves with an armlock submission.
The following week’s lessons were around guillotine chokes, I unfortunately missed the opening lesson at the start of the week, but was able to get a good consolidation lesson in via the Professor’s talented Brown belts.
During that lesson, we did a good amount of work on standing and exploring different entry points of guillotine chokes mixed in with some strike defence. One particular detail we looked at which was very, very nice was being in the seated rear naked choke position and guiding their escape towards being guillotined!
My thoughts, even though i engaged in reduced lessons over the last two weeks, the details were excellent which now adds to my ever increasing knowledge of Jiu-Jitsu. With the seminar looming, I hunger for more details about Jiu-jitsu!
