Jiu-jitsu doesn’t always need to be complicated. In fact, sometimes the best solution is also the simplest, most direct solution.
Consider a situation where your opponent is in your guard but is refusing to engage you in any meaningful way. Maybe he’s ahead on points and is trying to coast for the rest of the match, or maybe he just wants the satisfaction of being able to say that you didn’t catch him in anything.
Anyway, in this situation he’s sitting back on his heels and defensively gripfighting like crazy any time you try to lay hands on him.
But in this video (from the brand new Grapplearts BJJ instructional Non-Stop Jiu-Jitsu) Brandon Mullins shares a super-effective technique you can use anytime your opponent is defensively stalling from inside your butterfly guard.
This move is simple, direct, and easy to learn. And it also gave Brandon the win in his quarter finals match at the 2009 No Gi World Championships. And allowed him to take a dirty-fighting member of the Yakuza down a notch or two.
Watch the video below to get the whole story of what happened, and also learn a great technique you can get results with on the mat right away.
