Monday Nights Combatives at FVGJJ

Tonights combatives and rolling included:
Side control. Postitional control.
Head lock counters.
Also did several different variations of fight simulations including:
Take down
Side Control, Mount, Remount, Take the back
Punch-block stages 1 through 4
Head lock counter to Modified (Seated) mount to arm bar or to back.

The curriculum from Gracie University is a step-wised curriculum. Lots of detail in each lesson. And each lesson connects to previous lessons in sequences that are the most common progression from one situation to the next. The reflex development and fight simulations are the methods that Gracie U employs to teach that progression and ingrain the lessons.

Here's a video from one of the black belts at Lagrange BJJ in Indiana. Chet Schemahorn is the head black belt there. Fox Valley Gracie JJ has been working a ton with Chet and LaGrange to continue on our journey of learning the Gracie Combatives and Master Cycle techniques. In the video there are some of the transitions that we practice from side control to mount to modified mount.

Note to myself from my combatives lessons tonight.
Triangle - at set up, chill out. Establish and maintain position. Utilize hips to help isolate and control arm. Control head. Shoulder walk and re-engage/chop leg. Lock up triangle - hand to foot, foot behind knee. Head control.

Head lock counter - utilize blade of hand. Don't push/force upward, instead rock forward.
