    Such a huge emphasis on drilling, even at your level it shows that you can't beat fundamentals and tedious work. Thanks man!

    My dad is putting me and my brother in BJJ class and I'm gonna be new to it. Any thing I should know or do? I'm kind of scared to do it and I don't like being bare foot.

    • Bradley Hill

      Don't worry, Jiu Jitsu is more about leverage & techniques than strength & size so try to really focus on understanding the technique. You'll do great!

      Not sure yet but I have a feeling I'm going to be the biggest girl there, mostly I see people skinnier than my size and I don't want to end up hurting any one..Not sure of what academy yet but I'm going to go check out the class since I'm already on the list and I'll what goes on from their.

      That's awesome! Glad to hear you're starting your Jiu Jitsu journey, which is your academy? Just listen to your coaches, ask questions & most importantly have fun! You could wear your socks, just ask your coach. Let me know how your first class is

    A nice video and looks like you are a great person and athlete. Wish people like you with a good heart and discipline all the best. I just wonder if you do weight cut and or water cut for competitions and also how many hours a day and how many times a week you are training :)
    Thank you again for the great video. I really enjoyed it.

    Primal Strength Yil oldin +2

    Hey Bradley, I'm new to bjj. I have a question for you. I'm a big dude, I'm 5 foot 11 240 lbs. I'm a powerlifter so I'm really strong. When I'm in class should I use my strength when we roll. In my first class ever I submitted a 3 stripe white belt twice. I used good technique and implemented the submissions that the professor taught us that night, but I feel like I have an unfair advantage over the other guys being so strong. I also want to get my technique down 100%, any tips, suggestions, advice? Thanks bud!

    • Bradley Hill
      Bradley Hill  Yil oldin +4

      Hey man, good question. I would suggest varying your intensity between sessions. (I use this a lot myself in my own training) Take some days where you won't use strength & focus completely on your techniques. For example, letting somebody pass so you can practice your side control escapes. Then take other days where you pick your toughest roll's in the academy & you spar 100% using your techniques alongside your strength. As long as you're aware during your rolling you will know when to use strength in a situation and when not to (This will also come with experience). Try to refrain from 'muscling out' of a position. Whether you're stuck in an armbar or mounted, try to think & find the most efficient way of escaping. Hope that helps, let me know how your training goes!

  • König Alfons der Viertel vor Zwölfte

    Nice vid B., but next time I'd choose some music that is less 'Casey-Style'. I think ur style is great, so why not just pick some music that fits you more? Keep it up \m/
