Check out the photos from Master Manoel’s seminar at Victor Huber BJJ on October 25th, 2015. It was a privilege for all of us to learn from a Helio Gracie coral belt.
Robert and Matt demonstrate what Victor calls a “911 Armbar Defense” when your arm is in danger and you feel the leg about to go over your head. This defense can be used as a last-minute defense and requires you to intercept your opponent leg as it’s coming over your head.
David demonstrates O-Goshi from lapel and sleeve cuff grips.
Victor twists back and to his left to make space for his left arm to swing back in front of Matt’s shoulder.
Victor shows how to pass the open guard when you are standing and your opponent is trying to control you with his feet on your hips.
Victor shows how to use the arm drag from the spider guard to take your opponent’s back and submit with the rear naked choke. Cecilia and Geovane, silver medalists at the Miami Open, demonstrate the technique.
A huge thanks to Royler Gracie for one of the best seminars that we can remember. Royler visited our St. Augustine branch at Ancient City Martial Arts. Royler showed an amazing array of self-defense techniques and very technical closed guard, open guard and butterfly guard passes. Thanks to Victor for bringing his master to St. Augustine and thanks to Michael for your awesome facility.
