Robson recently shot a very nice technique for us. He addresses the reverse De La Riva position, a position being widely used right now in sport jiu-jitsu. This setup will make your opponent feel like they can pass but as you load their weight the sweep happens fast and the finish happens even faster. Check it out!
In this segment, Augusto ‘Tanquinho’ Mendes shares the technique he’s been using lately in competition to defeat the 50/50 guard. It’s really important to keep your trapped leg straight so that you keep your opponent from getting underneath you. Once you have a good base and the trapped leg is straight you can stand to break the legs open and then work the pass. There is a lot of subtle movements in this technique so work it with your training partner for a while in drilling before trying it live.

All Jiu-Jitsu matches start from standing, but at a lot of schools rolling starts from the knees. Some traditional Judo throws and take downs can be extremely effective and put you in a better position than pulling guard if completed successfully. In this episode of Judo for Jiu-Jitsu Jimmy Pedro, 4x Olympian and coach of the US Olympic Judo team shares a really nice technique that you can put to work in your game.
