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.
Welcome to our second JJOTG online series with Professor Scott Miller. For details on Professor Scott Miller's background please check out the Half Guard Leg Attack series.
In this four part Front Headlock Counter series, Professor Miller will be taking us through a variety of techniques that are sure to result in superior position, connective control and multiple submission opportunities.
In our first segment of Professor Scott Millers "Front Headlock Counter" online series we will be focusing on the sucker drag to counter the Anaconda Choke. The details lie within a wide base, proper head placement and securing the tricep/elbow.
If nothing else, his awesome hair keeps you wan...
You will often be on the receiving end of the basic front head lock, mainly because it is most commonly used...luckily, one of the easier headlocks to defeat and counter as well.
Here we will be looking at the Peak Out counter with options to take your opponents back or secure side control.
Sometimes you will have an opponent who has a very secure front head lock and will prevent you from performing the Peak Out counter. This leaves the door open for an awesome Short Fireman's with the knee tap...clear the elbow and now you have great side control.
Stay connected to your opponent ...
Sometimes we have a tendency to try and Peak Out in the wrong direction...that's ok, "There's an APP for that"...and luckily you are watching it. This is a fun one because it allows you the options of front head lock, wrist lock and kimura.
(Variety is the spice of life)
