Hello, and welcome to Jiu-Jitsu On the Go. I have the profound privilege of being able to offer and share the gift of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I am a stand that everyone in the world gets this Martial Art in their life. It is truly transformational and brings about a higher quality of life for everyone. Here is a little about me!
I began training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997, while stationed in Hawaii, under Grand Master Relson Gracie (ranked white-black) and was awarded my black belt in 2009. I met Master Caique Elias, as a blue belt, and would eventually seek tutelage under him when I became a second degree black belt. As a practitioner who was primarily exposed to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my game is simple and effective. After 22 years of training (11 years as a competitor, 9 years as a head instructor and academy owner), my teaching style is concept-based, this allows for the student to experience noticeable results immediately. My goal is to impact your game and help you on your journey.

Now that we have a better understanding of how to position ourselves when we are mounted, we will start working our escapes. Your opponent has many attack options from mount, so first let's look at the Elbow Knee Escape to recover guard or take the back when your opponent is coming in for the ri...
Whether your opponent prefers a left hand cross-collar grip or they have grown wise to your right handed counter, this elbow knee to butterfly guard escape will open the doors wide for you.
Simplicity at it's finest when utilizing proper framing.
With great framing and counter grips your opponent might abandon a traditional mount and transition to a technical mount. When we find ourselves in this position, the Leg Heist Mount Escape will truly provide you with the opportunity to turn the tables and control the fight.
