  • Move of the Week: Shane’s Takedown

    Move of the Week: Shane’s Takedown

    With Tuesdays now hosting our No-Gi BJJ class, takedowns are all the rage when it comes to learning new techniques. This week, our purple belt Shane showed the class a takedown using the arm and shoulder. By grabbing the arm and holding it in a “figure four” lock, one manages to disable the opponent’s balance by controlling their arm. With a shift of their weight and using the opponent’s shoulder to finalize the move, this takedown serves as a great way to control the opponent and get into a good position to start a submission.

    Move of the Week: Armpit Arm Bar

    While resembling a chicken wing, this arm bar is not one to be messed with. While the arm bar is part of the basic 5 moves of the white belt rank, our Hapkido students refined their fundamentals with this simple drill. One most focus on the hand placement for this lock, and once successfully caught, the opponent can attack in any way they choose. While simple, this drill is a prime example of self defense. ....
