Are you a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor? If so … LISTEN UP – because I have a very serious question for you … And your answer will likely determine if you win or lose your next match.
If the match depended on it could you take your opponent down & score 2 points?
I’m talking about a situation where your opponent’s passing is definitely better than your guard. We’ve all been there – your opponent is a wrestler with excellent base and no matter where you try to sweep him to, his body unconsciously flows to just the right place & you can just never get him. Inevitably he wears you down & passes.
Or maybe it is a power guy with grips like a vice that you just can’t control and he stays on top just suffocating you the whole match – he never passes but you never sweep or submit – doesn’t this type of guy just make you want to pull your hair out?
There is a flip side to this story though. The guys I just mentioned – the athletic wrestler or Mr. Iron Grips – almost always have a bottom game that sucks. You just know if you could get the top you could pass & submit – they would be wide open! The problem is, how do you get the top???
Well let me admit some painful truths:
If you’re fighting a guy with a better top game & a better bottom game you’re kind of screwed. You probably need to do what the rest of us need to do – keep training and have fun.
If you’re fighting a guy who has wrestled extensively in high school (and even worse, in college) and you didn’t wrestle, getting the takedown in a no gi match is going to be extremely difficult – probably impossible.
If however, you are fighting a stronger guy or even a better wrestler & you can master a simple set of techniques… Then you can beat these opponents – every time. The gi is the great equalizer and if a wrestler tries to “wrestle” a guy who has mastered these simple moves they’ll get flipped like a breakfast pancake & then lose the match.
There is an interesting paradox between Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes vs. tournaments. If you go to a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class almost anywhere in the world, the entire class is spent on ground techniques. These days blue belts and even a lot of white belts have pretty advanced guards – a few years ago you didn’t see lower ranks doing spider guard and de la Riva guard and berimbolo. They can go upside down & sweep their opponents or even pull off very slick submissions.
But there is one pretty big problem – it was the legendary MMA fighter Chuck Liddell who said, “Sure, 90 % of fights end up on the ground, but 100% of fights start on the feet.” Well the same is true in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournaments.
“90% Of The Fights End Up On The Ground But 100% Of The Fights Start On The Feet”
The same guys who can invert themselves & pull off highlight-reel sweeps and submissions have no stand up games whatsoever! They don’t have any idea what to do when opponents make easy-to-exploit mistakes like bending over, grabbing both lapels with death grips or going in for a sloppy wrestling shot.
Maybe you are one of those guys?
It’s Not Your Fault
You were never shown the simple techniques that allow you to just wreck the guys who don’t know what to do in the standup game. Why? Most BJJ instructors just don’t know.
They might show you some hip tosses & leg trips that work when you throw a willing partner in class, but when you try it during the rare class where sparring starts from stand up – or even worse in a tournament – you can’t get anything.
Your strategy becomes to stay on the feet long enough that the other guy gets bored & pulls guard before you do or you get bored & pull guard yourself. Maybe you get taken down, lose the 2 points & the guy on top doesn’t even really try to pass – he just hangs out in your guard like a stone & goes on to win because you couldn’t sweep or submit him.
Everyone knows this frustration don’t they?
What if I told you there was a better way? A better set of tools that could allow you to frustrate & take down stronger guys and even opponents that are better wrestlers than you in no time? What if I could guarantee these techniques will work? Would you be interested in hearing more?
If you want to learn the stand up game the first thing you need to do is find someone who knows it better than you do, and more importantly someone who can teach these techniques in a way you easily understand.
Well to do that we found the best Judo coach in the country & the best male judo competitor in America – this is takedown royalty for guys in Gi’s.. More importantly than just knowing Judo they also have extensive backgrounds in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Our first instructor is Jimmy Pedro who was a Division 1 collegiate wrestler at Brown University where he captained the team in 1992 – 93 and 1993 – 94. He was EIWA Champion in 1993 at 142lbs, a two time All Ivy Team member, and NCAA qualifier.” In addition to being a successful wrestler, most would consider him the greatest American Judo competitor of all time. He is a 4 time Olympian – he has won 2 Medals and is also a World Champion – 1 of only 2 American Men to ever do that and in his first stint as US Olympic Judo coach in 2012 oversaw the greatest US Judo performance ever at the London Games.
Jimmy has forgotten more about taking guys down than most will ever know. He will show you very simple solutions so you can capitalize when your opponent makes basics mistakes.
Our next instructor is Travis Stevens, the best male American Judo competitor in the world, a 2 time Olympian & a very advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt under Renzo Gracie & John Danaher. When Travis goes to local BJJ tournaments he tears up the field. Travis was recently asked to participate in the prestigious invitation-only Copa Podio Tournament in Brazil.
These two greats will be your guides as you learn to master the skills necessary to beat even the toughest opponent. All the techniques and tips you’ll ever need are found in The Takedown Blueprint.
If you want to beat the guys at your belt level you need to be better than them in some areas. You could try to get better at sweeping or passing than they are at sweeping & passing, but that’s going to be difficult because they are working on those skills 3 to 5 times a week in class. Luckily, they are ignoring their standup games – some simple drilling of the right moves will give you a huge advantage.
To prove how important this is, think to yourself – the last time you saw a jiu jitsu tournament you probably noticed the guy who got the takedown won the match. Statistics show that whoever wins the takedown points usually comes out on top.
1. The 2 points for the takedown are huge when adding up a final score
2. Getting the takedown sets a tone and gives the thrower a key mental advantage over the guy getting thrown…
So what is in the Takedown Blueprint program Jimmy & Travis are offering?
It’s a 3 DVD set packed with nothing but useful information, no fluff here.
On the first two DVDs, Jimmy and Travis show their best takedowns to use in BJJ Matches – meaning these will be safe throws and won’t expose you to back takes.
• Osoto Gari – Outer Reaping Throw – A devastating throw to sue against an opponent leaning backwards
• Knee Osoto Gari – A slick modification to throw opposite sided players with osoto
• Drop Seoi Nage – An Explosive, yet surprisingly low risk takedown
• Ippon Seoi Nage – An even safer way to land the one armed shoulder throw
• Tomoe Nage – The tips Travis shows on this move will allow you to launch opponents as they think you are pulling guard: you have to see this move!
• Tai Otoshi – An explosive body drop to use on an opponent pushing into you
• One Handed Tai Otoshi – a very slick way to use the body drop that hardly any BJJ Player will see coming
• Ouchi Gari – Inner reap – a very safe way to take your opponent down into their guard
• Sumi Gaeshi – A very slick sacrifice throw where your back hits the mat first, yet you end up on top
• Fireman’s Carry – An Explosive takedown that ends with the opponent on your shoulders: a great place to be and the set up is very cool
On the third DVD they will show you when to use these moves against 4 types of Jiu Jitsu players:
The Strong Weightlifter
The Guy Who Bends At The Waist
The Guard Puller
Jimmy and Travis are so sure this Takedown Blueprint DVD series will improve your game that they will give you this guarantee: If you don’t see immediate improvement in your standup game – not just in competition, but even in your next workout – they don’t want your money. They will give you a full refund.
Now you are probably wondering what a product as good as Takedown Blueprint will cost.
Realize there has never been a learning tool this good that teaches BJJ guys takedowns. If you were to hire either Jimmy or Travis for a private lesson it would cost several hundred dollar per hour – and that’s if you could even book it. A better question is how much would you pay to have absolute certainty (plus a 100% money back guarantee) that your game will improve?
We strongly suggest you take action now if you want in on this incredible opportunity. They didn’t make an unlimited amount of copies, this first batch will certainly sell out quickly.
So again, how much would you expect to pay to learn from these 2 greats?
It’s a few hundred dollars for one personal lesson but they aren’t charging close to that.
Most DVDs in this market are usually priced in the $147 range but they aren’t charging that either.
Heck, they aren’t even going to charge you $97.
For Batch 1 the price is just … $67
But that is only until Batch 1 sells out. When there is a second batch – actually we don’t even know if there will be a second batch but if there is – it won’t be priced this low.
You have to make a decision about your future right now. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
