4 Submission Escapes From Jean Jacques Machado: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tactics for Escaping and Reversing
How This Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Master Teaches BJJ Moves Worldwide Through the Jean Jacques Machado Academies in Tarzana, CA, and Malibu, CA, seminars where he teaches BJJ moves to eager students and an extensive informational website, Machado is at the forefront of spreading Brazilian jiu-jitsu on a worldwide scale. He is also the author of the two best-selling books — The Grappler’s Handbook Vol. 1: Gi and No-Gi Techniques and The Grappler’s Handbook Vol. 2: Tactics for Defense, as well as a 3-DVD set based on the first book. BJJ Moves in Side Control As explained in the video below, it is important to get our from under the opponent when he’s got you in side control. “Common position here, I’m defending,” Machado says, setting up BJJ moves for getting his knee out from under his opponent (in this case, Grappler’s Handbook co-author Jay Zeballos) and maneuvers into a scene where it would be “natural [for him] to push my leg and pass my guard.” There’s a catch (or, in this case, a hook) as Zeballos attempts to pass Machado’s guard. Machado pushes his opponent’s left leg out from under him and hooks his arm, effectively destabilizing his center of gravity. During these elegantly composed BJJ moves, Machado’s entire body axis changes so that Zeballos is beautifully flipped onto his back. Machado then circles around to establish his own side control, thus turning the tables in his favor.
