Surprise your Opponents with these Judo Turtle Attacks for BJJ

In BJJ it is worth using judoka’s advice when it comes to stand up technique and also for ground work. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu comes from judo for a reason, and the techniques of this martial art should be implemented in BJJ training. Of course, this technique has to be adapted to the BJJ rules.

When rolling in a BJJ setting with a judoka with good Newaza (ground work) there are a few things that you should watch out for:

  • It will be very hard to maintain control in the cross position as they will be frantically bridging left and right trying to reverse you.
  • They have a heavy top game. If they control or pin you, they will do a very good job of blocking you.
  • If you attack their turtle position, they will always trap your far arm that you use to wrap around their hip, and attempt to roll you over.
  • They have sneaky submissions that you will rarely see in BJJ.
  • Their turtle attacks and revearsals are deadly.
