We always get a great work out here at TENBEARSMMA in Dayton Ohio! I am going to talk a little about UFC 144 and how students at TENBEARSMMA where drilling the same technique Vaughan Lee tapped ‘kid’ Yamamoto with sat, Yamamoto had never been tapped out until sat. night! Vaughan Lee got him with a armbar that he transitioned to from a triangle attempt. Sat. at TENBEARSMMA in Dayton Ohio we where training hard before UFC 144 came on that night and just happened to be drilling the Technique that Vaughn Lee tapped ‘Kid’ Yamamoto with!
This is how we started our training at TENBEARS in Dayton Ohio First we warmed up to get our synovial fluid moving between our joints so we avoid unnecessary injuries, we did lots of good stretches, we also did jumping jacks, pushups, sit ups etc. once we where good and warm we started drilling guard passes with our training partner resisting about 50% this is great for warming up the rest of the way plus you can’t train guard passing enough! After we drilled some guard passes in Dayton Ohio we moved on to some techniques, sensei showed us different ways to enter the technique and key details that might make the difference between someone escaping and someone tapping! I will go over a couple but you really need to come to TENBEARS and experience this for yourself, from the triangle just like you saw in UFC 144 Vaughn Lee pushed the wrist down and entered the triangle instead of wasting energy he transitioned to the armbar, a key detail you saw was how Lee under hooked the leg to turn his body to get a great angle as he transitioned to the armbar he knew he had the shoulder trapped good. you can get the tap still holding the leg raising your hips up and pulling the arm back, Lee went ahead and used the other arm to really put a lot of pressure on ‘Kids’ arm, he knew he had it at this point! After drilling some great techniques here at TENBEARSMMA in Dayton Ohio we did a 4 point drill! Great BJJ drill we got students that compete so this great for that and great for staying in shape and your BJJ in general! We start with one student on their back,and the other one in that Persons guard, first one to 4 points stays on the mat. This is a great workout and very good for getting used to the points system in BJJ matches! Come check us out at TENBEARSMMA in Dayton Ohio!
