Leticia Ribeiro Series 2 - Self Defense Technical Stand Up when Attacker is in Your Guard

Add to Favorites Remove From Favorites 509 50 days ago

Leticia combines two of the most basic and important movements in Jiu-Jitsu, the hip escape and technical stand up, and uses them in a self defense situation common for women in particular. Her attacker is in her guard and choking her. Leticia first creates space by posting her feet on the mat and escaping her hips until she can place her feet on her opponent's hips. She pushes away some more and sits up, posting on her elbow. She places her opposite foot on the mat and pushes off the hip with her other foot, to stand up into base, protecting her face with her free arm. Finally, she runs away to escape her attacker.

The first chapter of the White Belt University will cover the basic floor drill movements such as break falls, rolling, hip mobility movements, and proper stand-up. In this lesson, Xande explains the purpose of floor drills and how we often practice them every training session to get our bodies warm but also to ingrain the movements into our muscle memory to keep us safe. These movements are found in various sweeps, passes, and defenses throughout jiu jitsu and are recognized as the core movements in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

White Belt University 1.2 Breakfalls - The Proper Way to Fall Forward, Backward, and Sideways

Add to Favorites 1913 Remove From Favorites 1392 days ago

One of the first lessons that you may receive at a Judo or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school is how to fall properly. In this lesson we learn how to fall properly in a forward, backward, and sideways breakfall. This is an important lesson to have early on because it can dramatically reduce unnecessary injuries from falling or being thrown. It is a common instinct for people who have not trained in a grappling sport to stiff arm the floor to try to catch themselves when falling. In this lesson we learn to practice our breakfalls to condition ourselves to breakfall instinctively rather than posting out with a straight arm. When being tossed or falling, stiff arming the ground is a good way to break your elbow or wrist. By slapping the mat in a proper breakfall, we disperse the energy of the impact throughout our body to reduce the damage done to one area of our body and effectively remove any concentrated trauma that may cause broken bones or joints.

Our next lesson brings us to a mobility drill that is very important in your journey as a jiu jitsu practitioner. Learning to do a proper front roll or back roll early on can help any unnecessary injuries to our neck through improper form. Many gyms start their warm ups with front, back, and side rolls to ingrain these movements into our muscle memory so that we can roll instinctively even during the heat of a jiu jitsu fight.

In this lesson Xande teaches us our first lesson in the hip mobility series of our floor drills. The bridge is used in almost every match and primarily involves lifting the pelvis off the ground so that our body is supported by our feet and shoulders. The movement conditions our neck and back during our warm ups and is often used as a defensive movement during a match to create space between ourselves and our opponents when they have you pinned or have you mounted.

This core movement is used to train ourselves to pivot our hips in a way to increase mobility and create space in sticky situations. It's often used to create distance between fighters or to escape from bad positions. Hip movement is very important for bottom guard players in grappling. It can also be used to create leverage, get back to standing, or finish submissions. This movement is practiced daily at most grappling gyms to ingrain it into muscle memory.

In this lesson we combine the movement from the previous lesson and hip escape to swing our hips to a belly down situation to get back up to our knees or feet. This movement is commonly used by grapplers who are pinned on bottom and are looking to escape from side control to recover their guard or get back to a standing position.
