Any recommendations (Youtube, bjj fanatics, etc) for learning about grip fighting (stand up and ground) ?
The Travis Stevens one is pretty detailed and you can get it cheap waiting for a daily deal and using a discount code
By grips I assume you mean gi-oriented?
Seems like Judo might be a good resource for standing grips.
For no-gi standup, the Steve Mocco one is awesome
this is exactly what I’m looking for
Steve Mocco is awesome, i use his foot sweep series alot.
Are you referring to wrestling fanatics instructional on foot sweeps. I’ve had that for awhile and. We’d to dive back into it.
Mr. Mocco has a hand fighting dvd. Its great.
I have that one, it is great. I want to get his iron claw one.
Judo gripping instructional are for Judo, not BJJ. Meaning they are sometimes doing certain breaks a certain way because the rule-set of Judo says they have to (like no 2-on-1 gripping).
Some of the easiest and best breaks for BJJ are now “illegal” in Judo.
I’ve been watching them more for how to get standing grips vs breaking them.
Roy Harris has a grip fighting app you can download. It’s been helpful for me.
I think gripping strategy is often the last thing people pay attention to. At least it was with me. By the time I cared about it I had already developed a “game”, so then it was a case of wading through instructionals to find techniques that replace my ad hoc system.
Totally the wrong way to go about things. It should be the beginning, not the end.
