“Using the Gi as a Weapon”
Open to all levels and styles! Traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses the kimono (gi) in a multitude of different ways mostly for choking, but in this seminar Tim will also show various pinning and controlling methods employing both your own, and your opponents uniform. Various clock chokes, cross chokes, arm bars, and lapel chokes will also be taught from all positions utilizing the gi in ways you never imagined. This seminar will take your offensive grappling game to a whole new level, simultaneously increasing your awareness of your opponent’s gi attacks!
