I was fortunate enough to catch up with one of the greatest minds in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Kid Peligro, at a Team Hopkins seminar. Any time you have the opportunity to chat with a Black Belt that’s under Royler Gracie, who just happens to be the author of pretty much every Gracie Jiu-Jitsu book on the market, you have to jump on it! The seminar was excellent and we covered a ton of material. Here’s just a taste:
Butterfly Sweep (drill and technique)
Butterfly Guard Pass (opponent sitting up) to Cross Body Position
Butterfly Guard Pass (opponent on back) to Double-Leg Lock; to Cross Body Position
Take the Back (drill)
Take the Back (technique)
Escape from Cross Body with Shrimp
Counter to Scarf Hold (side headlock)
Counter Arm lock to Counter Arm Lock
BJ Penn Arm and/or Shoulder Lock from Seated Open Guard or Butterfly Guard
I wish I had taken more notes… We covered more material than I can remember. After the seminar I chatted him up. He’s releasing another app and ebook which are going to work hand in hand. I’m looking forward to that. This man is a genius!! He was also kind enough to show us a new technique off of his upcoming app, Counter to the Omoplata.
I did the Omoplata wrong. If you’re going to screw something up, be like me and make sure you get it on camera, in front of your peers, while practicing with a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu master. Go big or go home, right?! Dammit… Here’s the interview. Check it out on my YouTube page.
