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.
So your early stages of defense did not work out so well and your opponent now has knee on belly...this is not an "oh crap" moment, trust me. Using your inside hand grip the ankle, frame out, create space and recover position.
If you find yourself caught in a "deep" knee on belly and there is no space to grip that ankle, you will want to frame out on that knee using the same inside arm. From here you will be able to frame out on the knee creating directional disruption and make the space to backside shrimp and recover.
