Review of the seminar with Jen "the rev" Jesen
Leg locks are frown upon in BJJ and there is a great need to learn leg submissions.
After all, they could easily represent 50% of the possible submissions if you look at the human body in such.
Why do we neglect them when we specialise in submissions?
First impression did not disappoint.
As I walk in, I get greeted by the tall rev as he is wearing his black rash guard which happened to have the clerical collar that priests usually wear.
That was it. I was in the zone and knew it was going to be an unique experience.
It just felt as walk in and met the person that will perform an exorcism on my fear of the dreaded leg lock game.
Another great touch.
Lot of instructors would not allow videos however for many reasons.
It refreshed my mind and help me moving into the next topic.
This is how the rev lets his students finish their heel hooks that way.
As I conclude my review, I will attend his next seminar and cannot wait for another 2 years.
Thank you Jen and Auckland MMA for the seminar.
Now I think about it. Jen just reminds me of watching one of my favorite TV program with Anthony Bourdain,
I am still not certain why?
Is it because just like a good chef, Jen enjoys the offals of Jiu Jitsu: the leg locks and neck crancks that everyone frowned up.
Just like food, the nasty bits are the best and it takes an expert to show you how to enjoy them.
