45 Min of Video of Dealing with and Breaking Grips
**I usually post any of my content or videos directly in the post
however this content is too large and is hosted on my server so
I had to add a link to the content instead**
I filmed these videos 2 1/2 years ago when I was a brown
belt but everything still applies. It is over 45 Min of dealing with
and breaking gi grips.
There are many different scenarios covered. From standing, in the
guard, having guard, etc..
If you utilize these concept it will definitely help you.
I'm going to be adding so much more about gripping and grip
fighting that I've added to my game since then. From more grip
breaking, getting your grips, and grip fighting from all positions.
This is a great topic because guess what I'm focusing on right now
in my training? That's right GRIPPING AND GRIP FIGHTING.
My goal right now is to have solid gripping systems for everything.
Hopefully you enjoy the videos and they help you out. I'll have
much more to share and in detail over at the Grapplers Guide very
Here's the video (Over 45 Min of Grip Fighting): http://tinyurl.com/breakinggrips
Thanks for reading and watching,
Really? 45 minutes? Damn.
Since we're on the topic of grips, what are other recommended grip-specific resources? I've only really seen grips discussed in detail in Judo tachi waza. It's nice to see some materials on ne waza.
The standing material in the original video above is very basic, however.
Neil Adams' "Grips" book from the Judo masterclass set is good and I've been studying that. Any reviews of Rhadi Ferguson and Jimmy Pedro's gripping DVD? Other materials?
And here's an old BS thread on Judo gripping. Judo Gripping - Overall Strategy - No BS MMA and Martial Arts
Neil Adams' "Grips" book from the Judo masterclass set is good and I've been studying that. Any reviews of Rhadi Ferguson and Jimmy Pedro's gripping DVD? Other materials?/QUOTE]
I think Adam's book is good for beginners, but is quickly outgrown.
I haven't seen any of Ferguson's or Pedro's material, but Inoue's, Koga's and Jeon's dvds from fighting films all contain their grip fighting approaches. As you would probably expect from his style Jeon's is the most comprehensive and shows some really useful methods of evading dominating grips and also what I like to call 'negative grip fighting', forcing your opponent to incur penalties and generally negating their Judo.
Thanks for the comments. I filmed this video over 2 1/2 years ago and now I have a lot more things that I do and right now my main training goal is gripping, gripping, gripping. Maybe I'll have a chance to share more in the future.

last night when doing some newaza i got caught in the other guys closed guard. I was trying to pass when they gripped onto both of my sleeves with both of his hands, his right hand on my left sleeve and his left hand on my right sleeve and i couldnt break their grip. How can i break their grip if both of my sleeves are caught like this? I couldnt break their grip using my head because they forced my hands down by my sides.
Thanks in advance
First off I should say I have never received training in grip breaking on the ground or in a guard situation. However I have developed one method for this situation.

My method is to take one of my hands and grip uke's belt or the top of their trousers then, with whichever side of your body is the same as the hand you haven't gripped uke with, you lift up your knee into the 'kyoshi' position
I then bring the my arm around the top of my knee and use the knee to create tension in the sleeve and give me some leveage to break the grip on my sleeve, which I do by jerking sharply backwards and downwards with my arm.
thank you very much...by the way, its really hard to find any gripping videos on theinternet...know any other link that could be useful?
