John B. Will is considered by many to be a pioneer in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The first Aussie to earn his black belt, he is one of BJJ's "Dirty Dozen" along with David Meyer. He is also one of the most prolific teachers scouring the globe teaching seminars and workshops literally the world over! His technical prowess is trumped solely by his pedagogy, which has earned him the official, unofficial nickname "The Coaches coach."
Here is an awesome example of John's teaching prowess. A very short clip on setting up the kimura, but watch it a few times as I have and you will notice the insane amount of detail packed into a couple of minutes! Essentially the three caveats of combat:
- Gain the superior angle
- Isolate and dominate
John will be visiting the Emerald City once again in July (his only US stop by the way kids), but if you cannot wait that long check out his latest project "Mastering Sweeps." I have yet to see it, but I hope to get a copy to review for my readers in the near future.
