2/26/07 Lesson Plan

We'll be covering escapes from the North/South position this week. North/South can be a very hard position to escape if you don't have the tools, hence our lesson plan this week!


  • North South Escape #1 (Pendulum to guard)
  • North South Escape #2 (Arm across body/bridge)
  • North South Escape #3 (Arm outside of head to guard)

2/19/07 Lesson Plan


I've been keeping a watchful eye out as to what the majority of you guys are having trouble with, and I've come up with this week's lesson plan. This week.... Wait for it...... Mount escapes!


  • Mount escape basics (hip movement, arm placement, etc)
  • Basic escape to full guard
  • Basic escape to open guard

That should be enough to keep us busy all week!


P.S. Yes I do realize that we worked on mount escape related techniques back in December! Why are we working on them again? We only scratched the surface last time, and the main reason is that many of you are still making some BIG mistakes :)

2/12/07 Lesson Plan

This weeks lesson plan is......... Triangle choke setups and defense!


  • Triangle setup #1 (knee contour)
  • Triangle prevention (posture)
  • Triangle defense (moving towards trapped arm)

Each of these will bring up other details which we will go over and expand upon.
