Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Club and blog located in Auckland / Epsom / New Zealand run by IBJJF Black belts Stuart Mitchell and Serge Morel.
We teach Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at 6 Woodhall Road, Epsom, Auckland, New Zealand.
Cold nights in Auckland. Stu taught Ouchi Gari which is nice follow up from the Tai Otoshi throw that we covered for the past 4 weeks. The topic of the week is half guard which scored 3 points .Next weeks, we will cover half guard passes. See you on the mats.
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.
Serge taught the arm bar and arm bar defense to the beginners while Igor took the rest of the classes and taught Judo for BJJ competition.
