They call it Kettle-Jitsu. So what is it?
It’s a workout that uses a kettlebell to specifically enhance strength and conditioning for BJJ. The movements and exercises even mimic some of the actual movements you would use when you roll. and that’s why we like it.
In this video, watch a workout that Joey Alvarado (owner of Socal MMA Fitness in Los Angeles, CA and creator of Kettle-Jitsu) did for Jiu Jitsu Magazine.
Lots of great exercises and movements that will help improve your BJJ…
And here is the breakdown of the workout
A1: 2-Hand Swing – 5 x 30sec
A2: Kettlebell Snake Move – 5 x 30sec
A3: Rocking Chair Get Up – 5 x 30sec
A4: Alternating Kettlebell Row – 5 x 30sec
A5: Sprawl to Kettlebell Clean & Press – 5 x 30sec
And make sure you perform each exercise for 30 seconds then rest 30 seconds in between exercises and sets.
Another great video with KB for Jiu-Jitsu:
You need more than just technique, you need GAME CHANGING concepts & details.
Calling this instructional “Game Changer” is possibly the understatement of the millennium. This must be the greatest collection of BJJ concepts, theories, and applications EVERY filmed. Paul Schreiner (main instructor at Marcelo Garcia Academy NYC) breaks down the “how’s” and “why’s” & goes into great detail about mechanics, movements, positioning and more. The depth of the material covered in this series is so deep this may be the one instructional you will refer to throughout your BJJ journey.
