Striking-Distancing copyFight Distancing 

Before even teaching you how to throw a punch, I think it’s important that you understand how far away you are supposed to be from the guy you’re trying to beat the crap out of.  The correct distancing builds power and increases your safety.  This is an EXCELLENT video and you will have a better understanding of how to fight after watching it... make sure to watch it all the way to the end, for additional awesomeness.

Jiu Jitsu-Kneebar-Guard-Pass copyThe Kneebar Guard Pass 

This is an essential kneebar, and it's not a complicated position from which you would be throwing it.  Basically, any time a guy leaves his legs split a little too much, you're going to take advantage of it and snap his legin half... why fight the rest of the way for a guard pass when you can just finish the move from there?
