Guest post by Henry Akins, the third American to receive a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt from legendary fighter Rickson Gracie. Akins trained under Rickson Gracie for 15 years. Akins became the head instructor or “Professor” at the Rickson Gracie Academy from 2005 to 2008 before resigning due to a back injury.
Akins has recently released an instructional website called Hidden Jiu-Jitsu where for the first time ever, he reveals the secret details that nobody outside of the Gracie family has been taught.
“What EXACTLY Happens when you get your Guard Passed?”
Here is a small part of my seminar from Alpha Jiu Jitsu in Woodstock, IL.
It was a great seminar thanks to Dan Hart for flying me out.
A few questions that get answered in this video.
- What’s the most IMPORTANT detail while your guard is being passed to make sure you Recover?
- What are the main two control points your opponent needs to FLATTEN you out and control you? (and how to stop him!)
- What does throwing a punch have to do with ESCAPING Cross Side?
- How does changing your thumb position make it IMPOSSIBLE to be Flattened Out?
The rest of the seminar will be made available to my HJJ Members soon.
