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.
From survival to escape...strong frame=strong game!
Bottom Side Control is by far the most frustrating position to be caught in. When I teach seminars or private lessons, the most asked question is... How do you escape side control bottom? In this online series I shed some light on this by utilizing a grip fighting system that makes it hard for your opponent to control you.

So you're in bottom side control and now your opponent has wrapped your head...what to do, what to do.
It's ok, take a breath. Control the head or shoulder (re-establish those grips) and frame out on your opponents hip to create the space for your escape.
Remember to keep your head on the mat when in bottom side control to increase the strength in your frame. Then utilize wrist control to allow your opponent to wear themselves out and move into position for you.
