This dude has been with me forever.... @briere_evan got a well deserved 2nd stripe on his purple belt...Evan has a fundamentally sound well rounded game and constantly puts his opponent of being in danger to be swept or submitted...Evan often helps me coach others in class and serves as an assistant BJJ coach @lvkm702 here in Vegas...Evan’s brother Kyle is a high level BJJ Black Belt on the east coast while Evan represents his last name well on the west coast...well deserved brother!! #xtremecouture#bjj#lvkm#bjj#earnyourstripes#c4cbjj#impactjj#vegas#training#alittlealot
First key to not getting finished= don’t get caught in horrible positions.
Second key= if you do, fight back and attempt to solve the same fundamental problems your opponent is trying to use to finish you...Pro Tip= solve one problem at a time, and know what is important now...
Here a subject has the most dominant angle (my back) has broken my structure (trapped my arms and has inside position) and will use grips and pressure to control Range and finish me (push with legs and pull with grips to finish me) RIGHT away I have to put pressure back into my opponent and get my hips up so I can move and fight his hands...simultaneously I have to fight to get my hands/arms inside...once I stabilize the position and choke I have to work to turn and face my opponent or put my back on the ground to take away the angle...
Put yourself in bad spots and work to escape repeatedly...at times you will get submitted, maybe many times...but your ability to fight effectively out of bad spots will improve over time...DO NOT BE AFRAID TO TAP IN TRAINING if needed...on the mat, as it is in life things will often be bad, and seem even worse...but if we embrace the challenge we can work our way out of spots that seemed insurmountable at first...Stay in the fight!! #xtremecouture#bjj#hardspots#fightout#c4c#pfctraining#c4cbjj#lvkm#impactjj#vegas
Fun moment with @nyking80 PJ Linder @xcmma while filming a video on police and security needing to escort a person from one place to another...This obviously was not hard, and I get cracked regularly in training, which is one of the benefits of training... #xtremecouture#mma#pfctraining#c4c#funtimes

The correct LEO armbar takedown is the hug armbar takedown...an angle, plus a 2 on 1 arm position, plus connection equals a high percentage takedown...understanding that I want space if I am defending, and I want to take away space and “connect” when I attack can be the key to securing a takedown or missing it...position plus connection equals takedown...UFC athlete @bryancaraway helps me make this point #pfctraining#c4c#copswhotrain#alittlealot#xtremecouture
