Attack the Back!

Olliekids BJJ

This week the kids have been looking at ways to attack their opponent’s back. Once back control is gained, it is very hard for the opponent to escape and the chances of being able to submit them is high. It is often seen as the best position in jiu-jitsu and one we often try to work towards. With these points in mind it is important to know how to get there, how to control the position and how to finish once we find ourselves there. It’s been great seeing the kids working hard to understand these concepts and they have made fantastic progress in their learning – keep up the great work!

Kids Entering the Half Guard

Olliekids BJJ

This week our kids have been working hard to get to grips with a new guard: the half guard. It is a position that will often happen during sparring so it is important to understand how to get back to closed guard or perhaps pass to side control from this position.  Despite it being a new guard to learn I was very impressed with all the kids effort – well done all!

I’ve promoted Ollie a brown belt in CDLDN cup last weekend.
As you guys already know he got 2nd place at World Masters in Las Vegas. Unfortunately he lost in the final, but he won 3 tough matches to get to the final which was amazing. He’s also been working and doing very good job with me in this 2 years. I just wanna thank to him helping and believing in me.
It’s time go to the next level for him.
Keep your eyes on him.
