The Bubba 2 Training Dummy

Most streaming issues can be resolved by installing the most recent version of Flash, which can be found by Clicking Here. Even if your browser THINKS that flash is updated, update it anyway. As a last resort, use the following video: (which will play on anything, but costs me a lot more $) :-/

(It costs $537)

It's good to have training options...

You can use that piece of equipment to enhance the following fight finishing moves.  Remember, you don't have to pass to a dominant position if you've already build certain techniques into your muscle memory.

Now that you know a bit about Side-Mount and how to get there, I'd say that an obscenely diabolical move from that position might be in order.  This one will revolutionize the way that people look at Key Locks (if the video get's leaked... which it probably won't... so it will be a small revolution).

A Ground Fighting Workout

Part of this workout is meant to build your Ground n’ Pound skills, and part is intended to build your Submissions and Passes.  You can do ALL of this with a Bubba 2, otherwise you will need a partner for the Jiu Jitsu stuff, and a heavy bag (or ground n pound bag) for the striking stuff.

I will refer to your “Opponent” regardless of who/what you’re training with.

Starting in your Opponent’s Guard:

  1. 30 Hammerfists to the body with your Left Hand
  2. 30 Hammerfists to the body with your Right Hand
  3. 30 Hooks to the body with your Left Hand
  4. 30 Hooks to the body with your Right Hand
  5. 50 Straight Punches to the face Alternating Hands

60 Seconds Rest (catch your breath in “Childs Pose”… a Yoga posture that you can Google)

Passing Your Opponents Guard

15 Reps Executing the Back-Side Knee Pass, pass over your opponent’s Right Leg, ending in “Kick-Though Side Mount” (aka Alternate Side Mount).  Be sure to violently drag your opponent’s Right arm with your Left hand as you kick through.

15 Reps Executing the same Back-Side Knee Pass, pass over your opponent’s Right Leg, this time dropping a huge Left Hook to your opponent’s face after you drag his arm and kick through.

Remaining In Kick Through Side Mount

Alternate between Left Hammer-fists and Left “Pec-Fly” Hooks to your opponent’s head for 50 total Strikes

Moving To All 4′s Side Mount

Go back and forth between Kick Through Side Mount and All 4′s Side Mount 20 Times.  Drag your opponent’s Right arm violently on either position change.

End in All 4′s Side Mount

  1. 30 Left Hammerfists to your opponent’s head
  2. 30 Right Hammerfists to your opponent’s body
  3. 30 Left Hooks to your opponent’s head
  4. 30 Right Knees to your opponent’s body

60 Seconds Rest

You’re half way done…

Starting in your Opponent’s Guard:

  1. 30 Hammerfists to the body with your Left Hand
  2. 30 Hammerfists to the body with your Right Hand
  3. 30 Hooks to the body with your Left Hand
  4. 30 Hooks to the body with your Right Hand
  5. 50 Straight Punches to the face Alternating Hands

60 Seconds Rest (catch your breath in “Childs Pose”… a Yoga posture that you can Google)

Passing Your Opponents Guard

15 Reps Executing the Back-Side Knee Pass, pass over your opponent’s Left Leg, ending in “Kick-Though Side Mount” (aka Alternate Side Mount).  Be sure to violently drag your opponent’s Left arm with your right hand as you kick through.

15 Reps Executing the same Back-Side Knee Pass, pass over your opponent’s Left Leg, this time dropping a huge Right Hook to your opponent’s face after you drag his arm and kick through.

Remaining In Kick Through Side Mount

Alternate between Right Hammer-fists and Right “Pec-Fly” Hooks to your opponent’s head for 50 total Strikes

Moving To All 4′s Side Mount

Go back and forth between Kick Through Side Mount and All 4′s Side Mount 20 Times.  Drag your opponent’s Left arm violently with your right hand on either position change.

End in All 4′s Side Mount

  1. 30 Right Hammerfists to your opponent’s head
  2. 30 Left Hammerfists to your opponent’s body
  3. 30 Right Hooks to your opponent’s head
  4. 30 Left Knees to your opponent’s body

If you have a parnter, do live Jiu Jitsu for 20 minutes (or until you’re exhausted).

One person should be Passing to Dominant Positions and the other person should be trying to STAND BACK UP.

If you’re in the Dominant Position role, DO NOT let your opponent back on his feet.
