Profs. Tony Lacaprucia and Igor Batista share a trove of BJJ techniques

March 16, 2019

Many thanks to Team Link blackbelts Professor Tony Lacaprucia and Professor Igor Batista for coming to visit our Northampton Academy to share some knowledge and rolls with our Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class.

 

During our Thursday evening training, Professor Tony shared the small details that make all the difference in closed guard, guard passing and sweeps. As Professor Tony says to beginners in the class, "You think it looks like you're doing what I'm doing, but it's not the same at all." Focusing on overlooked details in grips, hip position and base can make a world of difference. 

 

 

During our Saturday training, Professor Igor shared some more advanced series: from half guard to sweep to submission, and from butterfly guard to sweep to submission. Professor Igor reminded us, "Jiu Jitsu is simple. We make it difficult."
