     Hey guys!!
     
    This is Nathan Mendelsohn back with the ninth Technique of the Week. This week's technique works in together with the techniques from weeks 1-5, all playing a part in my series of attacks from the back. This one is for when you want to get the bow and arrow choke but your leg is stuck underneath your opponent. Hope you can work it into your game and get it work for you like it does for me!! Enjoy! Ossssssss

     Hey guys!!
     
    This is Nathan Mendelsohn back with the eighth technique of the week, this is a good technique for guys with guards that are really tough to pass. Sometimes if the time's running out and you can't pass the guy's guard you can put him in this position and finish him anyway!! Hope you enjoy the technique and are able to put it in your game and make it work for you like it does for me!!

     Hey guys!
     
    Back with a new Technique, this one is a video featuring myself that a friend of mine Ashoka McCormick made as a part of a technique series he does called Journal of A BJJ Player. I'm putting it up here in case you haven't got a chance to check it out yet!! This pass is one that has worked for me many a time in competition and you can find a couple examples in this highlight from the US Open 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9xLZwUJA_M at 1:15 and 2:42.

     Hey guys!!
     
    Back with another Technique of The Week, this one being a little trick for those of you who like the deep half guard but sometimes get stuck against guys who have a really tough base! If you can't get your normal deep half guard sweeps to work for whatever reason then you can use this to transition to the x guard and sweep the guy from there! Hope you can put it in your game and get it work for you like it does for me!

    Hey guys!!
     
    This is Nathan Mendelsohn back with my fourth technique of the week!! This is a technique you can get from the same position as the previous two techniques if your opponent won't let you make the grip the others require!! I've had a lot of competition success with this technique, and I added two examples from the 2007 Us Open as a blue belt!!
     
    Hope it works for you!!
     
    Stay tuned!

     Hey guys!!
     
    This is Nathan Mendelsohn back with the third installment in my weekly "Technique of the Week" series. This is a continuation of last weeks technique, showing you how you can get the choke from the back in a similar fashion but from a different angle. If you can put both these technique into your game then any time you see the patch on the back of your opponent's gi they're gonna be in deep trouble.
