If you’ve been wanting to get your hands on the Hayabusa Shinju 2 Pearl Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi because of the rave reviews but you couldn’t afford it, here’s your chance. BJJ Warehouse ( A dept of MMA warehouse) has dropped the price massively from $179.99 to $99.99.

BJJ is a game of inches. Small changes can make a massive difference.

jiujitsu-is-a-game-of-inchesAre you battling to pull off a technique that you see other people use with great success? This may be why. In this video, renowned instructor Stephen Kesting discusses the impact that small changes in grips, positioning etc can have. Tiny adjustments can have a huge impact on what works and what doesn’t. It’s the reason you see one person use a technique very succesfully and another person can do what looks like the same technique with little success. The devil as they say, is in the details.

Stephen has some great instructionals available from Amazon here.

Caio Terra shows us how to take the back from Half guard top

caio-terra-half-guard-to-backBJJ world champion Caio Terra has a great half guard game. In this video, he shows us an excellent way to take the back from the half guard top position. It’s amazing how often I find my self in half guard so it’s important to have a good way to get to a dominant position from there.

You can buy Caio Terra’s DVD on half guard techniques from Amazon here.

Back take and mount from closed guard with Buchecha

back take from closed guard buchechaThis video is a perfect storm of sick techniques. BJJ Wizard, Marcus Almeida aka ‘Buchecha’ shows us how to take the back from closed guard and transition to the mount at will from there.

The reason I like this video so much is that there’s nothing complex here, just good solid technique. Closed guard is an iconic position of BJJ. The back take and the mount are arguably the two most dominant positions. In this video, you learn how to go from one to the other to the other in a simple and almost unstoppable sequence. The best part is that you can rely on the fact that it’s rock solid technique, because the instructor is Buchecha himself. It doesn’t come much better than this, so go drill it.
