The Half Guard

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBOxAsFft98

In this video I will teach you a high percentage Half Guard Sweep ! One of the most confusing positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the half Guard and it can be the most frustrating position, or it can become your favorite position. There are many sweeps and submissions from the Half Guard, however, you need to put in a lot of time drilling and working positional training to become proficient at the Half Guard !

Getting a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Is your Goal to get a Black Belt in BJJ ?

 

Hey Zombie’s I was thinking about my journey so far in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and about how long I have been training. One thing that seems to amaze me is that in other Martial Arts such as Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kajukembo etc… they are just so un realistic… You hear about little kids getting black belts and breaking boards and it’s just sad because these kids get a false sense of security thinking that their Black Belt will actually help them a real life situation.

I realize how fortunate enough I am to have been introduced to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu early on and not have waisted my time in other Martial Arts… but I also realize that getting a Black Belt in BJJ is NOT an easy task and that 80% of people who start BJJ NEVER make it there because of the time and effort it takes to get a BJJ Black Belt.

My Goal as an Instructor is to keep all of you motivated and to one day in the future produce MANY BJJ Black Belts … I found a short (7 min) inspiring video I hope that you all watch !

Here it is …. See You on the Mats,

BJ Penn Retires. My favorite BJJ fighter

BJ Penn Retires… My favorite BJJ fighter

One of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters in UFC history fought a good fight tonight against Nick Diaz, but ended up losing a decision to Cesar Gracie fighter Nick Diaz. In the first round BJ Penn looked great and even took the back of Nick Diaz, but unfortunatly could not finish the fight.

The second round of this Mixed Martial Arts fight was all Nick Diaz in what was mainly a stand up fight. BJ Penn looked as if he gassed in this round but was able to survive and come out a little stronger in the third round. Unfortunatly he was not able to fully recover and ended up losing a decision in the main event of UFC 137.

One thing is for sure though and that is BJ Penn will go down in the UFC Hall of Fame as one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters in MMA history. BJ helped put Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on the map and prove that BJJ is one of the most effective Martial Arts Styles in the World. In my opinion BJJ is the elite Martial Art and is light years ahead of everything else if you look at a pure style vs style art.

BJ Penn was an amazing fighter and now gets to be an amazing father to his daughters…Thank You BJ Penn for all the great fights and BJJ matches you gave the World… Osss

Why Zombie BJJ is the #1 MMA School in Abilene, TX

I wanted to write a blog post about why Zombie BJJ is the best place for you to learn MMA in Abilene. Ever since the very first UFC in 1993 it has been proven that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the superior Martial Art if you put each Martial Art up against one another… don’t take my word for it, you can search YouTube and type in BJJ vs Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kajukembo…whatever, and you will see just how effective Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is.

Now with that being said, you still need to learn a good striking base and we have the best Muay Thai program in Abilene, TX as well. As a matter of fact you will NEVER see any pro UFC fighter breaking boards, kicking straight above their heads, or doing forms..IT’S JUST NOT REALISTIC.

But a lot of these Traditional Martial Arts Schools realized this, so they immediately slapp a BJJ sign or “claim” to teach BJJ when in reality they teach a watered down…book taught form of BJJ…it takes years of training every day on the mats with true BJJ Black Belts to get good at Jiu-Jitsu…so please don’t be fooled!

So if you want to learn MMA and REAL Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and live in the Abilene, TX area then you need to train at Zombie BJJ…we are the REAL DEAL.

We also offer a FREE 30 Day Trial, so call us now at 325-864-0434
