Indianapolis BJJ | Half Guard Sweep with Back Attack

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    This is a great technique demonstrated by our good friend Travis at Carlson Gracie Indianapolis Jiu Jitsu.  He came up on the 11th for a 2 hour workshop and then hung out for a couple days of training and fun.  Travis is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and currently trains in Columbus, Ohio.

    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and groundfighting.  It utilizes natural body leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and, as a result, provides greater position for striking or submission holds.
    BJJ has been proven, when used properly, to be an effective method for dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in MMA.  It can be trained for self defense, sport grappling (gi and no gi) and mixed martial arts competition and has found its way into the training regiment of nearly every sucessful martial artist worldwide.

    Translated as "the gentle art", Brazilian jiu-jitsu focuses on using strength and technique in the most efficient way possible to control and overcome opponents of greater size, strength and aggression.
