Week 9 – Standing Strikes, Transitions to Guard, Sacrifice Throws

Thank you to everyone who joined our Women’s Self-Defense Seminar at Gracie Barra Chino this weekend! We enjoyed seeing all of you strive to learn new important skills and hope you enjoyed the instruction! If you have friends or family in Colorado let them know we are holding another Seminar on the 24th at the GB Saddle Rock location!

In our fundamentals class, we will be working on blocking punches in the turtle position and recovering guard position. We will also show the Pendulum Sweep and Straight Arm Bar from closed guard. In Class B we will teach how to recover to closed guard when an opponent has the knee on belly position.

In the Gracie Barra Kids program, we are working on an escape, and a hip throw. Later in the week, we will also work on the compass step as well as a foot sweep. Students will finish with specific training.

In our advanced class, students will work on nuanced transitions to the guard position, guard submissions, and ground technique. Students will work on X Guard sweep controlling the pants, and pulling to single leg X.
