Most Powerful Video

By bestfree | Uncategorized

This is my most powerful video that I
have posted so far. This isn’t a guard pass… it isn’t
a striking combo… and it isn’t a takedown… but all of the
guys at my MMA gym in Miami, FL have watched it and
benefitted from it greatly…

This video is going to take some time to watch… don’t watch
it until you can sit down in a quiet spot and be totally
able to process the message. Here it is:

Grab your favorite beverage, a pen and notepad, and pay good
attention to the video – this video can reap you 1,000 times
better results for you than any of the other videos I have
sent you thus far.

Brain Transplant

Another powerful technique is
called “Resetting”. Resetting is when you have a certain
ritual that resets your system, much like resetting a computer,
and gives you a fresh burst of energy and focus. For me, my
reset ritual is slapping my face with both hands – for you it
can be anything. Some reset rituals I’ve seen include raising
the rear hand up and touching the forehead with the back of
the hand, biting down on the mouthpiece, punching both fists
together, and oddly enough, I knew one fellow that for some
reason would grab his front teeth as a reset (don’t ask me
why). The point is that ANYTHING can be a reset, it doesn’t
have to be cool – it just has to work.

So how do we make our ritual work into an effective reset?
You first need to decide what is your reset ritual. When you
hit the wall and feel like quitting, you then need to have
enough awareness to execute your reset ritual… which should
bring upon you a sense of awareness. This awareness should
shake off any discouragement you may be feeling at the moment
and bring upon a surge of energy, or as I also call it, shaking
the bear off of your back. When you get fatigued, sometimes
it feels like you got a bear on your back, weighing you down…
the reset should shake him off and get you back light on your
feet with energy.

The biggest program in the beginning with executing a successful
reset is learning to have enough control over your own mind
to have enough awareness to his your reset… a good coach can
help with that. Let your coach know what you have in mind
with the reset exercise and when he notices you are failing,
he needs to yell, “RESET! RESET! RESET!” and that will be your
cue to snap out of it and execute your reset ritual and shake
the bear off of your back! After some help from your coach,
you will develop the ability to do it on your own when you
need the boost – but if you are a competitor, you should always
have a coach in your corner who understands the reset concept
and knows the specific instructions or phrases that you would
like heard to initiate it. For me, my brother knows that when
I’m fading to yell, “YOU GOT TO WANT IT! YOU GOT TO WANT IT!”
and for me, that initiates my reset. I’ve been using that
phrase to initiate my reset since I was competing in high
school and currently in my MMA in gym in Miami, FL
– it is ingrained in my brain. The reset is also a
very important technique for combat and we will revisit this
technique later with more detail.

Elbow Tuck Escape

By bestfree | Uncategorized

After my last entry, I know there must have been a few
people wondering, “But what if he is grabbing around the
head…” so here is one of my most reliable escapes from the
head and arm hold from side control:

There are MANY escapes from that position… and if you try
them and none of them work… then wait for the opportunity
to use this escape! As I mention, at some point they are
going to release the arm, and when they do… BAM, you hit
this move explosively! Check it out! We use this escape very
often at my MMA gym in Miami, FL.

Rock ‘N’ Roll Escape

By bestfree | Uncategorized

I’ve been getting feedback to show position escapes, so today
I’m showing one of my favorite escapes from side control,
which is the Rock N’ Roll Escape! Check it out below:

This video is one of my favorite escapes from the side control
over-under pin. When I’m facing someone with a really strong
pin and can’t free either of my arms or turn to my side, this
technique has proven very reliable for me as a last ditch
technique. I use this all the time at my MMA gym in Miami, FL.
