Video - Some Top Game BJJ Concepts
What's up everyone,
New video (actually a bit older, that's why the quality isn't that great but wanted to share anyway.)
This video discusses important aspects that one should pay attention to in order to have an effective top game with good control. These concepts apply gi and no-gi.
- Blocking and controlling the hips right off the pass
- Different ways to block the hips
- With your hips
- With your knee
- With your arm
- The importance of not just relying on holding your opponent down in just one position such as side control.
- The importance of how knowing when and how to move on top will lead to you having better top control and will lead to more opening.
Thanks for watching,
I may have added the video wrong or something, but I am unable to edit it for some reason...The quick edit feature isn't working for me and I can't go to "advanced" editing. Check with firefox and safari.
I just sent a "report" to the Staff to have them look at it.
In the meantime do you have a youtube, google, etc or other web link you can post?
Thank you...Sorry for not thinking of that in advance...here you go:

Been trying to improve my top game lately. I'm going to N-S a lot. That hugging the hips tip is a good one. I've done something like that before but not so committed. I gotta try it real deep like you showed.
What do you think of taking the back from the top of North south? I've been having fun doing that lately.
Are you talking about using double-unders gripping the arm pit or lapels and pulling the guy back into you to take the back from N/S?

I'll use it every no and again but it is pretty low on my option pole from the N/S position.
We just upgraded the software the site runs on and things are a bit weird now. We're working on it as fast as we can. Sorry for the hassle.
