Carrying on with the fundamentals from the Gracie University BBS1 syllabus, this drill begins in the mount and ends with offence from the full guard. Firstly, we look at the guard recovery from the full mount. Then, we work the cross choke and armbar from guard as an attack by combination. Lastly, we add in the triangle as well as triple threat position from guard.
To confirm, please note that these video shorts do not purport to offer thorough instruction, nor are they intended to replace proper online or in-person training. However, if, like me, you are looking for inspiration for you personal at-home training maybe these drills can encourage your own practice. If so, great. If not, thanks for watching anyhow!
And now, before you go any further, couple things to bear in mind. Firstly, I’d recommend doing each drill for 2-3 days, perhaps a couple times a day – for example, as a warm-up to strength and conditioning. Consistency is key, rather than binging and burning out. Lastly, of course, you’re doing these drills at your own risk.
