BJJ Scout: Ronda Rousey - Judo In MMA

While the IJF is busy trying to differentiate itself by limiting what its members can train / participate / compete in, Ronda Rousey continues her tear through every opponent out there by simply perfecting an amazingly successful hand full of techniques into one comprehensive strategy.  The result is nothing short of beautiful:



Thanks to BJJ Scout for yet another awesome breakdown!

Positional Studies with BJJ Scout - Bicep Ride

Scout has been down and out with an injury, but he is back with a vengeance including his latest venture... a series of breakdowns on Positional Studies, the most recent being 'Bicep Ride.'  As always BJJ Scout breaks down grappling into bite sized morsels that are easy for us to chew regardless of rank and experience.  The more experience one has the more they can digest.

You will also notice a nice little shout out at the beginning (10 second mark) of the video for Brian Johnson's "B-12 BJJ Curriculum" so please do us a favor and help spread the word via Scout's video. Not so coincidentally many of the principles Scout is breaking down are taught in Brian's fundamental curriculum!

Ronda Rousey Takedown Study w/ BJJ Scout

Hot off the cusp of last nights UFC (thanks Russ & Brett for hooking a brother up!) event in Seattle, WA. where Ronda Rousey garnered tons of attention, BJJ Scout has created a new breakdown video on her takedown game in MMA.  Rousey is by far the biggest name in MMA right now being the poster child for female MMA in the UFC, but we should not forget that she is an Olympic Judoka and one of the best grapplers in MMA period.

From the poll to your right it looks like more grappling such as Sambo is wanted here (you got one more day to cast your vote), and while this is not strictly Sambo, a great grappling analysis none the less:

10 Year Old Guard Passing, Alberto Crane's Crazy Omoplata's, and Rodolfo Viera's Takedown Breakdown... Video Wednesday Is Here!

Wanted to share a few "must see" videos with you guys.  Regardless of what styles you train I think there is something in all of these of value.

Fair warning... this first vid will make any father breakdown with tears of joy as this 10 year old girl teaches two of the best guard passes by two of the best guard passers in BJJ (Rommulo Barral & Leo Lo) in awesome detail!  Too cute:



Alberto Crane is a friend and coach of our academy here in Seattle, as well as being one of the most dominant tournament fighters of the 1990's!  A student of Draculino, Alberto is known for his aggressive style and shows a couple follow ups to the omoplata here:



Lastly but certainly not least we have BJJ Scout's latest video breakdown where he analyzes Rodolfo Viera's awesome Judo game.  What he is referring to as "planes" is exactly what my teacher Tim Cartmell termed "dead angles" and this video is arguably one of the best explanations of this fundamental principle of throwing!  To read the entire takedown - breakdown click here to be redirected!



Study Hard.  Train Hard.  Party Hard!
