Spider Guard with Spiral Hook Set Up From Closed Guard!   Leave a comment

I love playing open guard.  One of my favorite positions is spider guard with a spiral/lasso hook.  It is a lot of fun and there are a TON of attacks.

But before we get to the attacks, I just want to break down the basics of how to set it up from the closed guard.  Hope this video helps you guys out.

Be sure to stay tuned for the next one in the spider guard with spiral/lasso hook series. I will go over a few subtle details based on this video like more detailed grip, how to defend this position if you are the guy on top and a couple other tips that will have you dominating your opponents in no time!

I’m a Brazilian Jiu JItsu Black Belt Now! Where does the time go? ….   Leave a comment

Hey all!  Just wanted to touch base here, its been a while and I apologize.

I got so busy with private lessons and teaching at a couple of different schools that trying to keep up with every thing like social media and blogs has been difficult.  Besides having a passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu I also have a passion for real estate and marketing and have started a couple new ventures since my last blog entry.   One of those being a Loan Officer under my own brand, SoCal Loan Man.  The other is Hits the Spot Media which focuses on REALTOR marketing and lead generation.  I also had  reunion shows with my old band, Simplex, and was playing quite a few shows around the SoCal area.  That said, I am starting to get caught back up and am able to make a little more time for teaching brazilian jiu jitsu private lessons and blogging.

In 2013,  I am happy to say I finally received my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt. I had a little drama at a school I was at and the instructor was hanging the black belt  over my head as well as others who were due promised promotions.  I had to make the decision to suck it up and leave  the school and instructor who I will not even dignify with naming.  Some people are black belts in jiu jitsu, but not black belts in fairness, loyalty and being decent human beings.  Best decision I ever made.  So, I had to wait an additional year to get my black belt from Master Joe Moreira who welcomed me back with open arms.  For those of you who know, Joe was my first real instructor back in the 90’s.  I started with Rickson Gracie and trained under him for a few months, but the drive to Los Angeles was too far. After only a couple months with Rickson, Master Pete Loncarevich suggested I try Master Joe Moreira and I have been with him or have trained under one of his black belts ever since.

Its been an amazing journey to this point.  The funny thing is the more I learn jiu jitsu, the more I realize I still have a lifetime of learning to go.  I am excited for the journey to continue and look forward to training and sharing what I have learned along the way with you all!
