Hello, and welcome to Jiu-Jitsu On the Go. I have the profound privilege of being able to offer and share the gift of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I am a stand that everyone in the world gets this Martial Art in their life. It is truly transformational and brings about a higher quality of life for everyone. Here is a little about me!
I began training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997, while stationed in Hawaii, under Grand Master Relson Gracie (ranked white-black) and was awarded my black belt in 2009. I met Master Caique Elias, as a blue belt, and would eventually seek tutelage under him when I became a second degree black belt. As a practitioner who was primarily exposed to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my game is simple and effective. After 22 years of training (11 years as a competitor, 9 years as a head instructor and academy owner), my teaching style is concept-based, this allows for the student to experience noticeable results immediately. My goal is to impact your game and help you on your journey.

In this segment of the Armlock series we will be looking at different methods of applying pressure to finish the Americana. Remember, it's not about burning yourself out using strength, but using slight adjustments in your grip techniques to twist, lift and drag your opponent into submission.
We have looked at the basic set ups for the Americana and Crunch Armbar, now let's look at a more advanced set up. Using the head to block the arm, we can create the outside arm trap during the pass or when your opponent is trying to escape. This is a great transitional set up!
In the last installment of our side control armlock series, we are going to revisit the concept of using full body mass versus strength to capture the arm of a stronger opponent. Here we focus on using shoulder pressure to peel your opponents arm away from their body.
This is a great way to b...
