This is the 15th app in the How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent. It expands upon the strategies and techniques taught by Emily Kwok in previous apps but is also designed as a standalone product.
This very popular series of apps give you the techniques and strategies you need to defend yourself against, and defeat, opponents much larger than yourself using the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The focus of this particular app is giving you the techniques, strategies and mindsets that take you from the initial tie-up right through to finally tapping your opponent out with a match-ending submission.
Volume 15, Submission Pathways, was filmed during a semi-private seminar in which Emily worked on no gi grappling with white, blue, brown and blackbelts.
In the app Emily starts by introducing the concept of training techniques in pathways. Pathways allow your techniques to flow smoothly from one to another, and makes sure that you have appropriate reactions to whatever form of resistance your opponent gives you. Training this way also makes a lot easier to actually retain and remember the techniques that you learn.
She then goes takes you through many of her favourite techniques in an easy to follow step-by-step manner. These are the techniques she has used to win world titles in both gi and no gi competition.
A highlight of this section is watching Emily trouble-shoot and fine-tune the techniques.You’ll appreciate her detail-oriented approach towards technical problems, giving seminar participants tips and details that you can include in your game almost immediately.
By being a fly on the wall during this Q&A process, when it comes time for you to use these same techniques on the mat, most of your questions will already have been answered!
