Rickson Gracie rarely shows BJJ techniques on film so it’s a refreshing change to see a video of him demonstrating a technique.
In Rickson’s first ever official Jiu-Jitsu instructional, he showed his approach to striking and clinching:
Strike, protect himself, close the distance and clinch.
Rickson has a number of MMA fights in Japan where he used this method:
- The side kick aka Pisao, hits the opponent’s knee, preventing from coming forward and attacking.
- A solid base which allows you to protect yourself or dodge punches.
- Clinch and attack.
This demo is part of Rickson Gracie’s course, Self.Defense.Unit, which will launch March 12th.
