Saturday refresh and new technique

Today we did a quick review of our armbar from the mounted position.  I was impressed to see that everyone remember all the details of the submission.  It's looking like our team have fallen in love with the armbar from mount. 

The next technique we introduced today was the armbar from the closed guard position.  We started by doing a drill to get the swing motion working and move our body into the right position for the attack.  After everyone had a basic idea of how the drill worked we moved onto learn the armbar.  I expect we will be polishing this submission for a while to get it fully programmed into our students tool box.  Today was an excellent start.  Well done team.

Every armbar our students learn for the sport aspect of BJJ can also be used in a self defense situation.  This attack has many variations and can be applied form nearly every position in our game.

Graduation 29-06-2019

Another fantastic graduation for Auckland Kids BJJ!

For those that weren't able to attend don't worry.  We will catch everyone up when they return from holiday or illness.  It was a tough term with everyone getting sick including myself.

Jamie, Oliver's dad, was our photographer again for our graduation.  He took another set of fantastic photos of the team.  Thanks so much for volunteering your time to help us out.

Thanks to Serge and Stuart for coming out on a Saturday morning. Their support is crucial in making our development.  Stuart recently received his 2nd degree for his black belt.  This means he's now able to award the black belt to those in our adult school that are ready.  It's very important that we have a level of competency with our students that progress to a higher belt. Serge, Stuart and I are members of the IBJJF.  The IBJJF holds their members to a very high standard.  You are welcome to visit the site and have a read about the organisation.

In New Zealand the competitions use the SJJIF rules.  I've added a page to our site that has a video and pdf of the rules for those who wish to compete.

Now for the fun part.
