We spend sometime discussing the goal of the 5-day camp, what to expect, and what we expect from you.
We discuss the role of situational awareness, how best to present oneself to a threat, and other pre-conflict considerations.
There is no jiu-jitsu at a distance. While making space and exiting is always favorable, what if you have to go hands on? We explore how to ride the storm of incoming attacks, closing or controlling distance, and gaining immediate control of the attacker.
Jiu-Jitsu isn’t just about being on the ground. Fights can be won standing up too. Taking environment into account, sometimes this is the best option. We look at high percentage standing based submissions.
We look closer at the core top control for the Street-Jits program the pavement knee ride. Topics covered are: how to gain, control, and exit to safety while using it.
While you want control of the top position, you don’t want to be taken down on the street. We look at the best ways to defeat a takedown, to keep the fight standing, either to end the attacker with a standing submission or to find an exit.
Maybe the attacker knows Jiu-Jitsu, maybe it’s just luck, but just like you want to, he to is seeking to end the altercation. If you get caught in a knee-ride and the attacker is striking at you, what do you do? We show you how to escape.
Remember the old Gracie in Action tapes? Being mounted while someone can strike you can mean the end. It happens all the time in MMA. We look at the best way to escape the striking mount from a self-defense perspective.
Having someone on your back and striking you can be a terrifying experience. We look at the best way to survive and neutrlise this position.
Working from the pavement knee-ride we look at the primary submissions that best work in self-preservation. For example, a straight arm-bar is a great submission, but not so great if the opponent decides to take a bite out of your leg.
We cover what your students need to know about their fight/flight response when faced with danger and what can they do to manage those moments more effectively.
We look at how to apply effective submissions from your back, while someone is trying to strike you.
We continue to look at how to apply effective submissions from your back, while someone is trying to strike you.
We spend the morning looking at Jiu-Jitsu versus the blade.
We continue to look at the blade, as well as dealing with firearms, and other weapons.
On day 4 you would have drawn a topic from a hat. You know have ten minutes to present that topic to the group. You can do it as you like, a lecture, presentation, as an interactive experience etc.
We address the ‘Elephant in the Room’ look at the best way to use Jiu-Jitsu to deal with multiple assailants.
