Don't Get Hexed! If your not familiar with what a Hex Grip is, here you go..

Once you have your defense habits in place, then the next step is to attack. And when you attack,

MAKE IT COUNT!

 

The goal is not to threaten your opponent, it's to absolutely remove any doubt that you finished the fight.

 

When you attack legs, arms or feet to a certain extent you are matching strength with your opponent.

That's why your priority should be to attack the part of their body that works the same as yours. Long Story short, attack the neck.

 

Take your opponent's back, and finish the fight.

 

If this isn't your strong suit, follow these details and that will change today.

 

The first important detail to understand is controlling your opponent's hips.The hips are where mobility originates. It is a common practice to reach for your opponent's head and shoulders first, and that's why your opponent has the ability to move their hips and ball up, trap your arm and roll, or scramble their way out of your back control.

For better success, reach for their hips.

Control their hips, and you will control their body.

 

As mentioned in The Jiu Jitsu Lab Series 2, the Hex Grip is the fastest way to take your opponent's back, and remove their ability to get  a turtle sweep and rolling on top of you.

 Say hello to the Hex Grip.

 Do not place your weight on your opponent.   Keep your body low. Never let your head cross over the mid line.  This limits opportunities for Turtle sweeps.

 Don't do this! Your weight is top heavy. As soon as your head crosses the mid line, your opponent has several reversal opportunities.

 If you want to finish your opponent.   Here is your Key to Success.      Side Note disclaimer : the term "Hex Grip" originates from the control points of your hand and arm.    This name has no references to "magic" , however coincidentally the results can be described as magical. :)
