This Past June Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu had the pleasure of hosting Braulio Estima for a two day seminar. Braulio not only brings 17 years of BJJ experience but also the techniques and mindset of a 5-time World Champion, Multiple time ADCC champion, and 5-Time European Champion. Beyond titles, Braulio was able to demonstrate the mentality of a true Martial Artist.
Day 1 Braulio broke down the concepts behind the choke,while focusing on the Triangle Choke. He covered the three different types of chokes, and what you are looking to finish each one. While covering triangles he went over what angles you need to find to be an effective finisher from the position. The seminar also covered reverse triangles, inverted triangles and reverted triangles.
Day 2 Braulio worked on guard passing and working to side control. In this seminar he covered what he refers to as “the Checkpoint”. Braulio went into great depth, showing what angles were needed and where to apply pressure to make ‘the Checkpoint” a great addition to every bodies skill set. It was great to see everybody working these concepts and being able to implement them over the 2 and a half hour seminar.
We have uploaded pictures from both days on the Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Flickr page.
