Learn this today to never again find yourself with your back flat on the ground

One of the greatest challenges for a beginner in BJJ is avoiding getting squeezed. After all, how can one stay levelheaded and in a comfortable position when there's a stronger, more experienced opponent trying to keep them flush with the ground?

Rickson Gracie has the solution, and it's as simple as a well-placed foot. Learn to be well connected with the ground, at the adequate angle for defending, and avoid getting squeezed from now on.

Slap in the face? Connect to defend it

Self-defense, the basis and origin of Jiu-Jitsu, exists to protect people from a wide variety of aggressions -- from a kick by a professional to a simple slap thrown in a moment of tension. 
 
In this part of Rickson Gracie’s special class about slap defense, note how the master depends on his connection with the aggressor to maintain his balance, and only then does he choose how to put an end to the situation. All without going home with that unpleasant heat in his cheek that can have so many consequences. 
 
Watch and enjoy.
