Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Redondo Beach- Safety Tips

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Redondo Beach  – Safety Tips


When I started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I just turned 16 years old and was around 130 lbs.  I was the smallest student on the mat and thus that was how I got the nickname, “little” Tony!  Over the years, I’d like to teach some safety tips to my training partners so I didn’t get hurt learning with them.

Today when training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Redondo Beach, there are number to things you can not do while training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Redondo such as slamming your partner on the mat, bending his or she fingers or heel hook leg locks.  However below are some nice tips to keep in mind when training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Redondo Beach:

* Please keep you hands off my the face- I don’t need you to be push on it and taking your palm into eye.

*Also you don’t need to be squeezing a sloppy choke across my face or head- this is the gentle art, so please change your technique or improve it while training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Redondo Beach.

*When you try to armlock me, you don’t have to yank it too hard, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is about self-control and leverage.

* When we are training, it is not the world jiu-jitsu championships and you don’t have to resist too much.  If you resist to much on my armlock when you should be tapping out, I am going to let it go and move on to something else.  You shouldn’t be in an armlock and you made many mistakes or one big one to lead yourself there.

*We are not wrestling in the high school gym and with more experience you will not need to explode to escape from me.  When you explode all the time, you are often forcing escapes and again made some mistakes.  You are going to get tired!

* When we train, please keep in mind that you are 60 lbs heavier than me and you are very strong.  Many times until you learn how to use your “Jiu-Jitsu Control, ” you size difference matters.

* See Tip 5- excessive aggressiveness

*And lastly stop moving too fast…hehe
