January 2nd, 2013 is our 11th Anniversary! As a part of our celebration, we have released a 2nd technique of the month video, filmed at one of our group classes. Starting with a nice closed guard sweep (when your opponent stands up to open and pass your guard), this video shows four different options from the sweep:
1) Achieve the Mount
2) Attack and Armlock
3) Attack a Triangle Choke
4) Attack an Omoplata (Shoulder Lock)
This video has a lot of great details, we hope you enjoy it!
Julio “Foca” Fernandez taught another spectacular seminar on Saturday, Dec. 8th at the Richmond BJJ Academy. Julio started the seminar with self-defense positions, and then showed guard passing, guard attacks, and specifically some omoplata attacks.
At the seminar, Eric Burdo promoted Anh Vuong, Jon Antonelli, Matt Tracy, Ahmad Fanahi, and Lance Patel to Blue Belt. Congratulations to these students!

We are excited to share a Spinning Armlock and an Omoplata from the Knee on Belly Position! This attack starts with a basic knee on belly transition from side control, and works into an outside (spinning) armlock, followed by an omoplata (shoulder lock) if they try to escape. This series is a must-have for beginners and advanced Jiu-Jitsu players alike!
We present to you the October 2012 technique of the month video.
We are excited to share a triple-attack from the spider guard with you! Consisting of a triangle choke, and armlock attack, and an omoplata (shoulder lock), this series is a must-have for beginners and advanced Jiu-Jitsu players alike!
