Beginner Class Recap

Once again tonight's 6:30 class focused on Self Defense techniques. After some Judo drills Jacare demonstrated an effective takedown when someone throws a looping right hand

In any self defense situation we as Jiu-Jitsu practitioners we try take the fight to the ground.When Daren squares up and throws a right hook Jacare looks to defend by trapping his arm, closing the distance and taking the fight to the ground. As Daren throws the punch Jacare looks to block it by trapping the arm at the bicep.

As Jacare closes the distance he grabs Daren around the waist and brings his head into Daren's chest

Once he is on the inside, Jacare drives forward with his head and pulls in with his arm on Daren's lower back to break Daren's posture. As he drives forward Jacare hooks his right leg behind Daren's left takes him down

As Daren goes down Jacare steps his left leg over and lands in the Mounted Position
