The BJJ Principles of Guard passing

This blog is about the sequence of videos I’ve shot at my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Martial Arts School in San Clemente, Orange County, about BJJ Principles.

In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, there are many principles that are the pillars of all techniques, either basic or advanced.

I just wrote a book about these principles, which is called “The 20 Immutable Principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu”. The video that I’m sharing with you is based on one chapter of my book that talks about the 7 Ps of Guard Passing. The video shows only a part of the whole chapter, but this part alone can be extremely helpful to any BJJ student.

Above all techniques, there are some very important principles that we must learn. It’s taken me many years to fully understand and learn how to apply these principles in my jujitsu game, but the earlier a BJJ practitioner learns them the better.

At Guillobel Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Martial Arts School, adults and kids have the chance to learn principles like these on daily basis, reinforcing the foundation of their martial arts skill.

In this video, we talk specific about guard passing and the two first Ps of Passing: Position and Posture; which I consider two very important principles to master BJJ Guard Passing that can be used for BJJ competition or traditional self-defense.

Many people go through many years of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training without ever hearing about these principles, but you won’t be one of them.

Our intention is to share the efficiency of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a great style (If not the greatest) of self-defense and also as a way of discovering more about our inner self and our body.

The use of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Techniques can only be made in combination with the use of natural laws and Physics, but its scope goes way beyond our physical body, including mental and spiritual aspects of our nature.
