Thursday Night Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class - CT BJJ


Today during our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu class we went over how to break the posture of somebody on top of you in-order to prevent them from hitting you by controlling the distance. Once we have control over our training partners we no longer have to worry about being hit and can then move on to either sweeping and getting on top or working for a submission. Today in class we worked towards a submission, the Kimora. The kimora is one of the most powerful submissions in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu because there are so many ways to set it up. we then moved onto attacking the strain arm-bar if our training partner escapes our kimora attempt and then transitioned from the straight arm-bar into an omaplata!…and if your not sure what an omaplata is you need to get to class! Jiu-jitsu is all about taking the easiest move possible so chaining submissions is a huge aspect of the Martial art and one of the skills required to move into the upper belts.
