BJJ 101 with BJ Penn (no gi)

This is basically what I've been drilling for the last two weeks or so, and if nothing else, it's made my transitioning much smoother- my attempt at his upa (mount) escape still needs a little work, though.

So, basically:
Mount Escape to Guard
Opening the Full Closed Guard
Stacking Open Guard Pass to Side Control
Side Control to Mount

So, if you're just starting out with grappling, this is a wonderful video. BJ also has lots of great free videos on his site:


PS- I want to do another MMA/Muay Thai post tomorrow- drop some comments/send me an email at
