Hello GB Lake Orion Warriors!

As we step into Week 7, the mats become a canvas for honing our skills in defending ground strikes, mastering leg grabs, and fortifying our guard positions. This week is not just about physical techniques; it’s about cultivating a resilient mindset that will guide us through every roll.

Defending Ground Strikes: The Art of Protection

Our journey begins with the crucial skill of defending ground strikes—a fundamental aspect of self-defense in Jiu-Jitsu. Explore techniques that not only shield you from potential threats but also set the foundation for strategic counterattacks.
