Because I have work to do for my day job for the rest of the day, I thought now would be a nice time to lazily through together an installment in the Grappling Links series. Some of the links contain interesting articles, while others contain cool techniques I would like to experiment with (if only I wasn't on the shelf with a lingering elbow injury). Hopefully, you find some of this stuff illuminating or useful (or both)!
- Here is a sneaky reverse americana.
- Here is a similarly sneaky reverse americana being called the "mexicana."
- As a reminder, I posted a variant of these techniques from CACC recently as well--which can be found here.
- Andrew Smith has treasure trove of instructionals posted on his page.
- White Belt BJJ has an interesting post entitled, "5 Difficult Concepts for BJJ Beginners to Grasp."
- Be Water, My Friend has a really nice piece entitled, "Guard Passing: Nullifying Control Elements.
- There is a post over at Jiu Jitsu Magazine called, "Why People Quit BJJ."
- If you like leg locks as much as I do, you should spend some time on the Youtube page for Eddie Cummings. I will be posting some videos about his techniques soon. So, go get a head's start!
- 2x World Champ Sebastian Brosche talks about the importance of incorporating yoga into your BJJ training here.
- Finally, Nic Gregoriades has a helpful piece over at his blog called, "Tips for Grappling After 30." I am especially curious what others think concerning his suggestions about supplementation, TRT, HGH, etc.
That's it for now. Happy reading!
