Hidden Jiu-Jitsu Mastery Series vol. 4: Advanced Interleaving for Creative Mastery
We’ve now come to volume 4 of the Hidden Jiu-Jitsu mastery series.
By now, you’ve been introduced to how to integrate concepts like spaced repetition, deep practice, deep attention, retrieval practice, association, and interleaving into your Jiu-Jitsu.
Today, we’re going to focus on a smaller series of movements, so that we can introduce advanced interleaving practice.
To refresh your memory, interleaving is the practice of rapidly moving between topics or pieces of information to increase the abstract understanding we have of each of the pieces or topics.
You might practice interleaving by switching back and forth between different solo drills.
Or you might practice interleaving by changing the order in which you practice different techniques or drills so that you can’t rely on a memorized pattern.
I hope you’re really enjoying this mastery series and seeing the potential of applying learning strategies to your Jiu-Jitsu practice.
We’re starting with solo drills because everyone is on lockdown for COVID-19, and it’s likely the easiest way to get the hang of many of these things.
But in the future we will be applying these strategies to any and all of your Hidden Jiu-Jitsu techniques.
So far, we’ve covered two series of solo drills movements, as well as some deep learning strategies that will help you learn efficiently, and remember everything you learn.
Today, we’re going to look at some movements that strengthen the legs, and help you to develop rock-solid base and posture as you move, starting in the guard and moving to the standing positions.
By now, you’re familiar with our algorithm for how to learn, and how to review.
So we will start with the new video today (and...
2 More Tools For Mastery - These Are Absolute Dynamite
For those who haven’t yet added solo drills to your dashboard FREE, click the link below!
Today, we have a new video of solo drills and two new tools to use for rapid and lifelong mastery.
First, let’s talk about the content of today’s video: the rolling movements.
In the first blog of the mastery series, we covered 5 drills to improve your closed guard work and crush the abs.
Today, we’ll focus on forward and backward rolls.
This is a fundamental skill for Jiu-Jitsu because the ability to avoid impact when we fall, forward or backwards, is crucial to avoiding injuries from throws or just the chaos of the fight.
Here’s the video for today, and below this, we’ll cover a review of Day 1’s material, and how to integrate this into your practice so they flow...

How did Rickson Gracie continue to develop his skill to ridiculous new heights, year after year, after he had already been the best in the world for 20 years?
How do you make massive leaps and bounds in your own skill level when you're better than all of your training partners?
How do you improve significantly when your only training partners are white or blue belts?
This video reveals one of the most profound secrets Rickson ever told me.
You can use this secret to improve your game tremendously, no matter who your training partners are.
In fact, I once asked him who he believed would win... 40 year old Rickson, or Rickson in his 20s?
He said, hands down, 40 year old Rickson would destroy his more athletic younger self.
And I saw him run through the best of the best so many times, it's hard to argue.
(This video reveals how).
If you'd like to lay the foundation to be able to do this for yourself, and continue to improve...
In today's video, you will learn...
One of the main principles to understand in “Staying Safe” is how to effectively manage distance. In fighting there is a very specific range that is needed to be effective with strikes, knowing this, one of the fundamental principles of Jiu-Jitsu is: Anytime we are fighting, we either want to be too far away or too close for our opponent to be able to do damage.
One of amazing skills that Maywether was able to employ to help him stay safe was his understanding of how to manage distance to neutralize danger. After the fight Conor mentioned he had a very difficult time dealing with Mayweather who was constantly in his face fighting him at a range where he was not effective with his strikes.
This is the reason in Jiu-Jitsu, from the feet, we are always looking to safely get to the clinch where it's much harder to throw effective strikes. Throughout the fight Mayweather and McGregor would clinch, throw ineffective...
In August of 2017 the world got to witness one of the most incredible sporting events of all time. A clash of superstars from 2 different combat sports met in a boxing ring in Las Vegas for what was arguably the biggest boxing event of all time. Conor McGregor the 2 division champion in the UFC with impressive knockout wins over the 145lb champion Jose Aldo and the 155lb champion Eddie Alverez took on Floyd Mayweather Jr, the greatest boxer of this generation and arguably of all time.
This event was the most hyped sporting event of 2017. Although many people did not give Conor McGregor a chance, never having fought a pro boxing fight before and fighting someone many consider one of the greatest of all time, he had a lot of factors to his advantage coming into the fight. Conor was definitely the bigger, stronger and younger fighter. Floyd was coming off a 2 year retirement and being 40 years old acknowledged that he was feeling the effects of his years...
Rickson Gracie Red Belt
On July 6 2017 the Jiu-Jitsu world got to witness a truly spectacular moment in Martial Arts history.
The promotion of Rickson Gracie to Red Belt. The Red Belt is the highest rank and honor anyone can achieve in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and it can be argued that after Helio Gracie, no one has done more for the art of Jiu-Jitsu then Rickson.
Regarded by other family members as the Champion of the Gracie Family, he retired in 2000, undefeated in Jiu-Jitsu and MMA competition. Technically, I don't think anyone would disagree on the scale and depth of Rickson’s knowledge in Jiu-Jitsu. He's known by the best teachers as the Masters Master. I myself have seen him teach multiple time world champions how to do beginner level techniques more effectively and with so much precision it's almost as if they had never seen the technique before. This happens with so much frequency that it's common for many highly accomplished black belts to mention they felt...
How to break down techniques to figure out how to make them as efficient as possible or to figure out the most efficient/best counter to a technique?
This was a question that was brought up by one of my Mind Blown Jiu Jitsu Club Members.
The short answer is to question everything....
For me as I was coming up through Jiu-Jitsu it was never good enough for me to just learn a technique. What I was really interested in were all the things that surround the technique and trying to really understand what makes it work.
These are the things I work to master in every technique.
What situation should I apply the technique and when was the best time? If the timing is off, the technique is going to require too much strength or not work at all.
How could I bait my opponent or set them up to give me what I wanted? For maximum efficiency we always try to use our opponents movements against them. So I was always trying to find the necessary reaction to the get the technique to work...
