Squad training at London Fight Factory!

Yesterday, four teams became one at London Fight Factory; LFF students were joined by fellow warriors from Golders Green gym, New Wave Academy and Checkmat Wimbledon. Everyone on the mats where there for one goal, to help prepare students for battle at the IBJJF London Open in October.

Lots of hard work and sweat was produced, as well as new friends and training partners and with another squad session arranged for New Wave Academy before the big competition, things can only get better for all involved.

Thanks to Luiz Ribeiro for setting up this killer session and a big shout to everyone I met yesterday, look forward to seeing you all again soon :)

Slo mo vid!

Found a couple of slo mo vids, filmed back when I was a brown belt; I decided to embrace modern technology and filmed a few self defence and BJJ vids and promptly lost them all, or so I thought. 

The first one is a self defence sequence I've used many a time at work and I've enjoyed using it every time and I'll post the other videos over the next few weeks.

Caio Terra at London Fight Factory!

Caio Terra was back at LFF last night and delivered a masterclass on the half guard and wrestling coach Jacob Harman was also in the building and took the no gi class, before Caio hit the mats.

How to open a tough closed guard

Here's a video from Stephan Kesting, offering a way of opening a tough closed guard, something that I've been teaching in class the last few weeks, so I thought I would share the video with you lovely readers.
