The Art of War in the Gentle ART: Part 1

~The following is a segment in a series of examinations. Jiu Jitsu, being one of the modern dominant martial arts, can be defined as a struggle for power. The struggle for power is a widely studied concept by sociologist spanning across many cultures. No other resource is more adept at illustrating the struggle for power than Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. War is not defined in the conflict of nations that we know it for. War is defined by the day-to-day struggle for power. Power in relationships experienced in professional environments, between families and other social institutions. The better we understand this struggle the more power we posses in our lives. To understand we need comparisons by which to illuminate the concepts of war. Illumination will improve application and for this purpose The Art of War will be applied to the Gentle Art.~

Part 1

Strategic Assessment

“Military action is important to the nation-it is the ground of death and life, the path of survival and destruction, so it is imperative to examine it… Therefore measure in terms of five things, use these assessments to make comparisons, and thus find out what the conditions are. The five things are the way, the weather, the terrain, the leadership, and discipline.” (Sun Tzu, cited in Cleary, T. 1998, pp. 41-41)

—As military action is important to the survival of a nation, preparation is vital to your growth as a martial artist. Though at first glance the five things that Sun Tzu mentions may not immediately appear relevant to your journey in the art. Converting the literal elements into understandable metaphors will provide more insight and a better application of The Art of War.

“The Way means inducing the people to have the same aim as the leadership, so that they will share death and share life, without fear of danger.” (43)

—The way should be applied to your selection of academy, training partners and coaches. The army whose members differ in goals or cannot agree on the purpose for war is an army that will implode on itself. The selection of a coach with the knowledge for your best interests is vital. The techniques that suit your style and work well for you must also be supported and understood by your coach. A coach who refuses to nurture your development is like an overzealous gardener pruning a rose bush, stunting its growth. Supportive training partners equal the selection of your coach in importance. Training partners with goals that include the improvement of others will promote greatness, while those with intentions alternate to this will see you suffer. Find the way.

“The weather means the seasons.” (44)

—The weather is your condition. The aches and pains you feel each day, the illness that you may succumb to. Know these in relation to your limits. Do not fight a war when doing so will be detrimental but do not cease to fight because the weather is mild.

“The terrain is to be assessed in terms of distance, difficulty or ease of travel, dimension, and safety.” (44)

—Gi or NoGi. Know the terrain and know the differences. One must realise that different approaches to each must be taken in order to be successful. Navigating the land is much different to navigating the sea. Know the differences both subtle and extreme and you will be no stranger to the terrain.

“Leadership is a matter of intelligence, trustworthiness, humaneness, courage, and sternness.” (45)

—Conduct yourself in a manner that encourages others. Speak through actions and less through words. The more you inspire those around you the more they will come to your aid. Constantly injuring training partners or speaking ill of others will only create alienation. Remember, there is no shadow boxing in Jiu Jitsu.

“Discipline means organization, chain of command, and logistics.” (45)

—Be disciplined in your training. Use all of the elements mentioned here to efficiently plan you path. Follow it never falling by the way and be as economic as possible. Do not make decisions that will benefit your journey in the short term only to steal from you in the future.

“Every general has heard of these five things. Those who know them prevail, those who do not know them do not prevail.” (45)

—These concepts are not foreign. Though knowing of something is completely different to understanding it. Understanding will encourage application. Never is it heard that beneficial result came from a lack of application.

“Therefore use these assessments for comparison, to find out what the conditions are. That is to say, which political leadership has the Way? Which general has ability? Who has the better climate and terrain? Whose discipline is effective? Whose troops are the stronger? Whose officers and soldiers are the better trained? Whose system of rewards and punishments is clearer? This is how you can now who will win.” (46)

—Being a master of this application will enable you to recognise its application in your opponent. Your preparation will illustrate the holes in the preparation of others. You will see the masks donned by your opponent for what they truly are, masks. Your application of the way, the weather, the terrain, leadership and discipline will create an immovable foundation while others will be sinking in the mud.

-Cristiano Del Giacco

Paper Cutter Choke from 7 o’clock North South

Paper cutter  choke from 7 oclock North South brought to you by 1/2 of the Main Brothers Mike Main. Brother of Ultimate Fighter veteran Andy Main.  One of the gems in this technique is the killing of the opponent’s arm.  Rendering opponent’s arm useless makes for less resistance and better probability of sinking in the paper cutter choke:).

Lincoln Sweep/ Toe Hold from Foot and Hook Guard

This is a  COOL sweep reminiscent to Buchecha’s knee bar attacks from half guard.
Lincoln slips in a hook while keeping a foot on the hip. He then baits his opponent to smash his legs down by placing his foot across on the hip. This is the beginning of the end.  Take the sweep for 2 points or the Toe Hold for the win.
Toe Hold option and details at the end.

Loop Choke from Guard Transition

A Kron Gracie inspired death choke! Kron is notorious for unconventional loop choking!

You can get this choke from many different positions. It is extremely versatile. Collar drag position, butterfly, spider etc.  Be creative:)

Inverted Armbar

Sick Armbar from De La Riva Guard courtesy of Inverted Gear CEO, and now, new Alliance BJJ BLACK belt Nelson Puentes.

This is an arm bar from De La Riva guard. You start off with double sleeve grip in the DLR guard. You then elevate your opponent, faking a tomoenagi overhead sweep, and allow them to plant their hands for balance. Once his weight is transferred to his arms, then swing your hips and snag the belly down arm bar.

All details enclosed in the VID as always:)

Forearm Slicer

This is a Forearm slicer for when the opponent resists the armbar.
Snag the FOREARM SLICER instead!

My absolute “go to” for when my opponent has the super duty vice grip clasp.  This technique is super high percentage.

Wrist Trap Armbar

This sneaky little armbar was done to us in training one day courtesy of Nuno Macedo :). This was one of those occasions that tapping was WORTH it.

This is an armbar you would get in side control when your opponent is framing against your hip. A pretty common action when being under sidemount,,, excellent >:)

Trap the Wrist.
Next, use your free arm to fold their legs to the mat.
Lastly, windhield wipe and throw your over his head and fall towards the legs.

De La Riva Shin Sweep

This sexy sweep was taught to me by my instructor, Lucas Lepri. I loved this sweep a little too much and carried it with me through the ranks. This sweep is available from De la Riva guard when your opponent attempts to pass your guard. They push your foot down and step over. You then intercept their leg with an underhook, switch your DLR hook to a Reverse DLR hook and deliver the sweep. You then pass the guard with a single under pass.

Lucas Lepri has put me on to the “TOTAL” game. He is complete EVERYWHERE. Can pass a mean guard, sweep a base god, and submit a sabretooth, double caralho!!

Straight Foot Lock / Side Control

This is a sneaky foot lock from side control when your opponent puts their leg up to protect from getting mounted. Perfect opportunity to snag :). In this scenario, you will set them up by applying uncomfortable pressure on their throat, shifting your knees towards their hips, lifting a leg up, wrapping your arm around their ankle, then falling to your side with a foot on his hip for escape prevention. To finish, apply pressure to the back of his achilles with the blade of your forearm and lean back.

Notice the Leg Drag position? Foot locks all daily!

Reverse Triangle Choke from the Back

I first saw this wicked technique on Cyborg’s DVD. You may ask, “Why show it?” Answer: “Cause i love this technique!”

I drilled this move feverishly. It became my primary attack from the back, next to the RNC(rear naked choke, for noob practitioners:). We are not opposed to showing a technique done before, ESPECIALLY if we love it, believe in it and use it.

Thank You Roberto”CYBORG” Abreu for the super fresh technique.

Baseball Bat Choke Variation

This unique baseball cat choke variant was founded out by Acainho. I say “founded” because he did this particular baseball bat choke variation one day in rolling when his opponent was fending off the grip. Sooooooo,, he switched the grip:) ALL Details enclosed in the video.

This is a Baseball Bat choke variation in which you switch grips and sides when in the knee on belly position. Also, to finish, instead of performing the classic step over the head finish, we used the rolling over the shoulder finish.
