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.

Phil Migliarese is a 4th degree Relson Gracie blackbelt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He has been training for over 20 years and currently runs Balance Studios in Philadelphia with his brother Rick. In this video Phil shares some of the tactics he has been using lately to open up attacks from the back, and how he uses his ‘Yoga Hook’ to improve his position.
Marcelo Garcia is the most exciting grappler on the planet. His Jiu-Jitsu game is dynamic, fluid, and at a level most of us will never be able to fully understand. In this episode of Rolling Reflections we did something a little different, Marcelo wanted to roll at 100% and so Pete gave him everything he had. Pete outweighs Marcelo by at least 60lbs, but as you can see that wasn’t a problem for Marcelo.
Not only is Marcelo an amazing grappler, he is an extremely kind and humble person. We had a great time visiting his studio in NYC and if you ever have the chance you should definitely stop in and train.
