Rickson teaches where to put your foot while fighting

The Brazilian poet João Cabral de Melo used to say that soccer consists of “giving the feet the astuteness of hands.” His verse could also refer to BJJ when it comes to certain key positions of defense and counterattack. Confirm this below, with one of the most valuable invisible details in Rickson’s arsenal, and learn how to make your feet as shrewd as hands. You will probably start seeing poetry even when someone comes for your neck with a side attack.

How does Rickson deal with stalling and kneading by a heavier opponent?

Have you been living through some bad moments on the bottom? Calm down. Breathe. As demonstrated by Master Rickson Gracie in this special, exclusive lesson, the secret lies in not waiting around with your back flat on the ground. With this directive in mind, you will have a much easier life, no matter the size of your opponent or whether they try to squeeze you or stall on top. 
 
The key to this problem, in Rickson's opinion, is to never keep your back flat on the floor, whether you're under side control, under a mount or in a variety of positions.

Helio Gracie's final message for Rickson

Legends never die. And neither do the wise, because their lessons traverse the years, decades and centuries. With Master Helio Gracie, history is again repeated. Especially when we realize that Rickson has in his secret files a video, unseen by the public until recently, where the king of levers leaves an eternal message for his son and his students. The video was recorded right after a training session between father and son, a few days after another great victory by Rickson. Check it out and carry this wisdom with you into eternity.

Grand Master Helio Gracie's cross-choke

Have you still not mastered Helio Gracie’s cross-choke?

To the great champion and teacher Helio Gracie, the choke from the guard with the adjustments he used was one of the most useful resources in Jiu-Jitsu. And he proved it by using this choke against some of the strongest Japanese fighters he faced. But are you already able to execute the maneuver without wasting the opportunity offered by your opponent?
 
According to Rickson Gracie, the big secret to Helio’s choke from the guard is the speed with which the collar is controlled, and the space Helio used to create for his hands to do their job. The hands go very deep in, almost touching each other, as pointed out by Rickson in another exclusive Rickson.Academy video. 
 
Check out an appetizer to help you brush up on Helio Gracie’s cross-choke.

Check out, in this video posted to Rickson.Academy, another tip by Rickson on teaching someone with a disability.
