    Congrats to New Jiu JItsu Blue Belt in Indianapolis

    Thu, 2014-02-27 14:28 — jotabravo

    A big congratulations to Brandt Basaran for earning his Blue Belt. Brandt has trained hard and consistently for the past 2 years and has begun to develop a very dangerous game. At 16 years old he is minimum age to receive a Blue Belt. So this is a very big achievement!

    The Blue Belt is the first belt awarded for the adults in BJJ. The criteria to achieve this ranks varies widely from school to school. Here at Stockman Jiu Jitsu we run off of a curiculum in our Fundamentals Classes. The curriculum consists of the basic pieces needed to build the foundation of your game. We focus mostly on Jiu Jitsu as a self-defense or fight vs. sport or point fighting. "I always want to be sure that #1 anyone that I promote to Blue Belt will be able to defend themselves using Jiu Jitsu if a situation would arise." says Stockman. We also do a lot of sport Jiu Jitsu but we don't feel that sport Jiu Jitsu should be the foundation of your game.

    If you are looking to train BJJ in the area, contact us about how you can come in for a free week of classes! We welcome anybody from any affiliation.

    See you on the mats!

    Indy Jiu Jitsu | Carlson Gracie Team | Armlock from Side Control to Reverse Triangle

    Tue, 2013-01-01 13:26 — jotabravo

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

    This is a technique that we were working on in December in our Advanced Class.
    Simple, easy, and no fancy movements.  It may not always be a position that you get the first time setting up, but if you get used to looking for it you will find it when attacking an armbar from side control or mount. It is a counter to certain escapes.  So learn it, drill it, then when sparring look for it.
    Good luck and See you on the mats!

    Indianapolis Jiu Jitsu | Carlson Gracie Team - Brabo Choke from the Closed Guard

    Sun, 2012-08-26 11:44 — jotabravo

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

    Closed guard is one of my favorite places to attack from.  Of course, I would rather be on top in a fight, but when practicing or playing sport jiu jitsu, I really enjoy the closed guard.  There are a lot of attacks that you can do.  Some are very simple and can be used playing gi or no gi and some are more gi reliant or more sport jiu jitsu.
