Topic for the next 2 weeks

We are now entering the half guard game for the next 2 weeks.
This week is half guard pass (because it scores 3 points). Next week is half guard sweep because it only scores 2 points.
Half guard was known as the transition position before that inevitable guard pass before getting smashed.
Now days, due to guys like Gordo, half guard is know as active, effective and aggressive as any other guards.
See you on the mats.

Federation in New Zealand

The latest story is that a NZ Federation is trying to attract the BJJ community to join their Federation.

While, I like some of the standards that they have created for their federation.

I can see some problems lurking in the future.

All the dodgy BJJ instructors will gladly join them as long as their new membership makes them look legit.

Also, they will be certifying black belts as well!!

That could possibly open the flood gates of trouble in such small communities.







Good thing, I am certified by the IBJJF and just renewed my annual membership card.

http://www.aucklandbjj.com/p/international-brazilian-jiu-jitsu-black.html






Your instructor needs to certified and member of the IBJJF if you want to compete in IBJJF events and also being a member of the IBJJF.

Otherwise, IBJJF would not recognise any other federations.


Training topics for the week


For the 3 weeks, the beginner program will be centered around the guard

This week topic is guard subs.

Next week, guard passes etc..

For the next 3 classes, Igor will also teach Judo strategies for our competitors and intermediates students.

See you on the mats.
