Week 3 Curriculum: Enhancing Your Ground Game

Greetings, Gracie Barra Lake Orion community! As we delve into another week of training, we’re excited to focus on honing our skills in defending ground strikes, mastering leg grabs, and refining our guard positions. This week promises to be an engaging and enlightening journey on the mats.

Defending Ground Strikes

One of the fundamental aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the ability to defend oneself effectively, even from disadvantageous positions. This week, we’ll be delving into techniques and strategies for defending against ground strikes, ensuring that we’re well-prepared to handle any situation that arises during sparring or competition.

Mastering Leg Grabs

Leg grabs are a crucial component of both offensive and defensive Jiu-Jitsu techniques. By mastering leg grabs, we not only enhance our takedown game but also gain greater control over our opponents on the ground. Throughout this week’s classes, we’ll explore various leg grab techniques and drills to help us become more proficient grapplers.

Refining Guard Positions

The guard position is one of the most versatile and strategic positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This week, we’ll be focusing on refining our guard game, whether it’s the closed guard, open guard, or half guard. By honing our guard positions, we’ll be better equipped to launch attacks, sweep opponents, and defend against their advances.

Word of the Week: Integrity

As we immerse ourselves in training this week, let’s remember the importance of integrity both on and off the mats. Integrity is the foundation of our martial arts journey, guiding us to always uphold honesty, respect, and moral principles in everything we do. Let’s strive to embody integrity in our actions, interactions, and mindset throughout our training sessions.
