    Indianapolis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu | CGTeam | The Kimura Armlock

    Fri, 2012-03-30 19:50 — jotabravo

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

    One of my favorite submissions and one of the first one that you learn when you begin training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the Kimura armlock.  It is one of the first submissions because of it’s simplicity however just because it is easy to learn doesn’t mean that it isn’t effective.  It is one used at high levels of MMA and BJJ and can be devastatingly successful if applied using the correct mechanics and technique to set it up.

    A big congratulaions to new Yellow Belt Evan Anderson a new addition to the Indianapolis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu scene!  Evan has been training BJJ for longer than most kids his age have even heard of the martial arts.  At 13 years old, Evan trains with the Adult Fundamentals Class 2x a week and has been a hard working, consistent member.  Keep up the good work and remember, a Black Belt is a White Belt that never gave up!

    Indianapolis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Spider Guard Sweep and variation

    Sun, 2012-03-11 06:56 — jotabravo

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

     Here is a fun sweep.  The spider guard is not as popular as it was 10-15 years ago.  Some say that it is an outdated guard because it is so easy to pass.  It is not as competitive as some other sport guard variations but because of the lack of teaching it and because it is not as popular anymore, it can be effective just because newer opponents are not used to seeing it.  Because of it's simplicity to learn, it is still good for newer practitioners that want to compete in sport BJJ.
