Saturday Afternoon Team Training - CT BJJ


Today during Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Team Training we continued working from the butterfly guard adding a fourth way to control the arm in order to prevent our training partners from basing out and blocking our sweep attempt. After everybody understood how to control the arm, we continued by adding specific resistance. The people on top were given specific ways people will counter or block the technique. For the butterfly guard people will defend by trying to counter the under hook and with out proper body positioning this can be easily done. We also discussed how to keep your base in the position to make the person practicing the sweep make sure they are implementing all of the details correctly. After the technical portion of class we finished class with Team Training Drills starting from the butterfly guard position we were working during techniques. Everybody pushed themselves and worked to practice the new technical details.
