This is Pablo Popovitch from The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center in Oakland Park, Florida. I'm going to be teaching you guys how to do basic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu technique. We're going to start with the mounted position, one of the worst positions you can be in a match, okay? So, Jay, Fred's mounting Jay. What Jay has to do here, he has to replace the guard, okay? So, what he's going to do first, he's going to be defending himself. See how his arms are in? He's protecting himself, he's protecting his neck. He's not letting Fred get under his arms so he can push, okay? So, Jay's going to place both hands on the knee, and he's going to slide his leg out by escaping his hips and pushing the knee. He's going to replace one hook to put Fred in half guard. Now, he's going to do the same thing for the other side, and he's going to go back to the full guard, okay? So, let's start one more time. You see now there's a neutral position, the guard. You're going to start on the mount again. Jay's going to slide one leg out, place the hook, and he's going to do the same thing for the other side, okay? So, one more time, Jay. Notice how his elbows are in so he's defending himself for the beginning of the technique, okay? He's going to push the leg. Look how he's bringing his leg high, puts the hook so he doesn't take that leg out. Now, he's going to do the same thing for the other side. And, now they're back in the full guard. The full guard, one more time, that's the position where you want to be. The guy's in a mount, you're in trouble, okay? Let's do it one more time. Now, we're going to do real speed, how it would look in the match. Back in the guard. One more time, this is Pablo Popovitch from The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Center in Oakland Park, Florida.
