          Tenbears Martial Arts academy in Dayton Ohio is the only Southern Ohio Affiliate School of Marcello C.  Monteiro.  We are privileged to learn some great Techniques that come straight from the professor himself! We are going to start from half guard on this technique in Dayton Ohio, We are going to switch our base, so that my right arm is over hooking my opponents right arm I am going to be on my right hip, close to my opponent and scissoring my legs with my right knee up against my opponents hip. I am going to bait my opponent into thinking that I am going for the mount. To make my opponent think that I am stepping over for the mount I am going to grab his pants just above his knee. My opponent will try to push my hand off his knee when he does He just fell for the trap! When he goes to push my hand off I let go of his gi pants and grab his wrist, Next I pin his arm to the mat, I have two arms attacking his one, I already have the arm over hooked with my right arm and control of his wrist with my left so I am going to go for a straight armlock but my opponent defends well and bends his arm and grabs his own belt. That’s ok I am going to transition to the kimura by grabbing my own wrist. I am going to pull my opponent up on his side and step over his head to break the grip of my opponent grabbing his belt, but my opponent has a very good grip, instead of playing muscle jitsu I am going to transition to something else to conserve energy I am going to keep a hold of his arm and transition to the other side of my opponent. I am going to put my chest against his elbow and stay on my toes for leverage. Next I am going to let go of his wrist and hug his head with a over under going to palm to palm or a gable grip. Next I am going to switch my base again scissoring my legs this time my left knee against my opponents back making it very easy to transition to the mount. I hold on to the over under as I go to mount, now that I am in the mount I am going to attack again. This time I am going for a gi choke that is very easy from the grip I have, I am going to let go of the palm to palm and grab my opponents collar feeding it to my left hand as deep as I can get it! To finish I am going to just take my right arm and feed it behind the head cutting both carotid artery for the tap! If I do not have the choke, I go to another attack that is ripe for the taking. grab my own collar trapping the arm taking my left hand and pushing my opponents face the other way stepping over for the armbar always pinching knees together and opponents thumb up, raising the hips for the tap!

 

Till Next Time!

Sunday’s Brazilian jiu jitsu class at Tenbears MMA in Dayton

Sunday’s classes at Tenbears Mixed Martial arts in Dayton, Ohio are our "open mat" classes where students have the opportunity to train in any aspect they please in Dayton, Ohio. Once warmed up, the students that were practicing BJJ ground techniques worked on their Mountaineer sweep from an open guard position in Dayton, Ohio. This sweep involves pushing your hips up into your opponent when they have straitened their posture while in your guard, causing their weight to be shifted backwards. The opponent may post a hand on the mat in order to brace themselves from being swept, which is what we want them to do because we then pull that hand into our bodies to break their post and continue to drive them with our hips, ending up in a BJJ full mount position on top of the opponent in Dayton, Ohio. After training in the Mountaineer sweep, we did another sweep that involves being in the BJJ open guard position. First we take one of our legs and bring it over the opponents arm on that side and bring the leg across their chest and putting the foot into their opposite armpit, trapping that arm. From there, we pull the other arm across our body to the opposite side while pushing out with our leg that we have across their chest, breaking their balance and sweeping them in Dayton, Ohio. We finished up the "open mat" class in Dayton, Ohio by doing some light BJJ grappling in dayton to apply the sweeps we just practiced.

Saturday’s Jiu Jitsu class at Tenbears MMA in Dayton, Ohio

Posted by torrey in technique , submission grappling in dayton , mma in dayton , mma dayton , mma , mat , Martial arts in Dayton , martial arts , jiu jitsu , ground fighting , grappling , free training , fitness training , fighters in dayton , drilling , clinch fighting , classes in dayton , class , chokes , Brazilian Jiu Jitsu , bjj ohio , bjj in dayton , bjj dayton , bjj , better shape , arm bars , ab workout in dayton , 30 days free

Saturday’s Jiu Jitsu class at Tenbears MMA in Dayton, Ohio was a very technical class, focusing on standing submissions as well as ground submissions. To begin with, we warmed up the bodies with our front rolls and side rolls, then transitioned into front break falls and side break falls, finishing up with good old fashioned elbow knee escapes in Dayton, Ohio. Our first set of techniques we practiced were standing wrist locks, also known as "Yawara" in the Yudansha Jiu Jitsu system in Dayton, Ohio. These involve keeping control of the opponent’s wrist, especially gripping at the thumb, and twisting the wrist and applying pressure in various ways in order to control their body and to submit them, making them "tap out" when the pain is overwhelming. Techniques such as these are perfect for self-defense situations as they start with the opponent grabbing our gi top or shirt. After the Yawara techniques, we then worked on performing a triangle choke from a different angle by starting in a BJJ side control position in Dayton, Ohio. From there we take control of the opponent’s arm and transition to where we are over our opponent with our legs up by their head. Then we take our foot on the opposite side of the arm we have controlled and put it between the opponents other free arm and their torso, sitting back and baiting them to bring up their head from between our legs. Once they do that, we take the foot we just put down and bring it across the opponents chest and hook our foot underneath our other leg behind the knee, locking the triangle in place while maintaining control of the other arm we grabbed earlier. If the triangle choke does not cause them to "tap out" then we can take the arm we have controlled and apply an arm bar against it, causing them to "tap out" as well as maintaining control of the opponent and exposing their head, perfect for applying ground and pound techniques perfect for MMA and street fighting situations. After the technical part of class, we then did our "wiping the mat" session, sparring against opponents of various size and skill level to help practice our application of the Jiu Jitsu techniques we’ve learned in Dayton, Ohio. Once we’re good and tired from "wiping the mat" we did our abdominal workout session to strengthen our core and them cooled down our bodies with some Yoga For Fighters in Dayton, Ohio.

Thursday classes at Tenbearss MMA in Dayton, Ohio are all about developing our stand up skills, including punching, kicking, clinch work, and takedowns in dayton ohio. Most if not all fights start standing up, so having excellent stand up skills is just as important as having good BJJ ground skills in dayton. We start out with warming our bodies up by practicing basic Boxing and Muay Thai punching and kicking drills against a partner by blocking and passing their strikes in Dayton, Ohio. These drills also help to develop reaction time to make it easier to tell when our opponent will strike and what strike they may use. After working those basic drills, we worked into "The Grind" where the students go round after round at different training stations practicing different skills such as Muay Thai pad striking, ground and pound strikes on a bag, punching and kicking against the heavy bag, using the speed bag and speed ball to help develop good hand eye coordination, as well as various other training drills in Dayton, Ohio. From there, after our bodies are good and tired from "The Grind" we then did live sparring against each other to practice our application of our Muay Thai skills in Dayton, Ohio. Once the sparring session is over, we worked into the abdominal section by doing leg raises at different levels as well as dropping a medicine ball on our stomachs to help condition them in Dayton, Ohio. As always we finished up by cooling down with our Yoga For Fighters session in order to keep our bodies nice and flexible in Dayton, Ohio.

 Students warmed up with rolls and break falls then transitioned to elbow knee escapes to condition the body for BJJ training in Dayton. Next they did a drill where they rolled over their partner who was on their hands and knees and practiced landing on the mat properly, then transitioned to the elbow knee escape again through their partner’s hands and knees. This type of drill allows for training in multiple BJJ aspects in Dayton, Ohio. From there, students then did a basic wrestling drill where one partner stayed in the hands and knees position while the other partner placed their chest on the downed partner’s back and practiced spinning in either direction while pinning their opponent down with their body weight. A drill like this helps to keep the opponent pinned to the ground while the student on top moves to different positions in Dayton, Ohio. Students then moved on to practice the "Wilson Guard Pass" which helps students get out of their opponent’s guard while doing BJJ in Dayton, Ohio. It involves the student in guard to put their weight forward onto their downed opponent and under-hooking one of the arms. Then students put their weight on the opposite site of their opponent and pin one leg down, switching their hips to that side and using their free hand to break their opponent’s guard. After that, the student brings their legs over the opponent’s pinned leg to pass the guard and end up in a superior BJJ position in Dayton, Ohio. Another variation of the sweep involves pinning one of the opponents arms behind their back instead of under-hooking it in the beginning of the "Wilson Guard Pass" then performing the rest of the technique ending with a full mount. The student can then bait the opponent into reversing the full mount by putting their weight to one side, ending up with the opponent in their guard with the arm still pinned behind the opponent’s back. The student can then pull the arm upward to create leverage against the opponent’s shoulder, making them "tap out" in Dayton, Ohio. After training in the "Wilson Guard Pass" students then did our "wiping the mat" session where they are able to do live BJJ sparring against resisting opponents to perfect their technique in Dayton, Ohio. Students then finished up class with an abdominal workout followed by some yoga for fighters to help them cool down from BJJ training in Dayton, Ohio.

   Tuesday’s BJJ class at Tenbears MMA Dayton, Ohio was a very big class with plenty of bodies to be thrown around. Students started off with basic forward and side rolls followed by front and side break falls to toughen the body up for BJJ training Dayton, Ohio. Then students performed basic elbow-knee escapes to help with their defense and mobility on the ground in Dayton, Ohio. Next we worked on basic guard passing drills in Dayton, Ohio. From there, we transitioned to training in a basic BJJ sweep from the ground. To begin, students place one foot on the opponent’s hip and slid the other foot behind the opponent’s opposite knee on the inside, while grabbing the ankle of the opponent’s foot on the opposite leg, where the foot is placed on the hip in Dayton, Ohio. Then, while gripping the opponent’s sleeve or collar with the free hand, students push and pull on their opponent’s hips and legs, causing them to fall backward to the ground, while pulling themselves up on top of their opponent with the collar or sleeve grip. After drilling the sweep, students then moved on to the best part of class: "wiping the mat." This is where students are able to perform live application of the BJJ techniques we train Dayton, Ohio. Once the "wiping the mat" session was over, we moved on to our killer abdominal workout in Dayton, Ohio, and then performed some yoga for fighters in order to stretch our bodies out and prevent any injuries.

I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day when I started training.  I started training mainly cause I have always been interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I felt that the self discipline and fitness oriented training would be the positive influence I needed in my life. I have cut down 15lbs since I started training and quit smoking after the first class. The self confidence I got from the training is something that is unreal. The Sensei is awesome and the way he teaches the classes is informative, fun, and the techniques are extremely useful in competitions. The feeling I get from the school is that we are a big family we watch the fights together train and compete together. I recommend this school and program to anyone that needs a positive direction or fitness training in there life.

~JOSH PETERS

Tenbears has great martial arts classes.  I am a huge fan of jiujitsu and would recommend it to anyone.  It's a great family environment and Sinsei Jim is very patient and ensures that everyone practices key moves correctly.  I know I live a healthier lifestyle now and have more confidence and overall fitness.  I'm learning self defense and gaining more appreciation for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

 ~Colin S.

The number one reason I signed up at Tenbears MMA was because I had a background of boxing and wanted to become more of a well rounded fighter. I wanted to improve my cardio and become more confident that if I end up on the ground in a fight that I will be able to handle the situation. The 3 most important benefits that I have received since I have started training here ; my self confidence has gone up by leaps and bounds, I have became a very well rounded fighter, and I have gained some lifelong friends. I am very happy with the instructors here. Their patience and knowledge of the arts of jiu jitsu, kickboxing, and judo are one of the main reasons that I committed to the school. My overall feeling is that it has become an extension of my family. The respect we give each other here is something you don’t find at every school. I don’t feel like just another statistic here. I would recommend this martial arts school in Dayton to anyone that wants to learn self defense, lose weight, and or compete in jiujitsu. You won’t find a more well rounded school in the area.

~Matt M

The number one reason I wanted to join a martial arts school is to get fit.  I also want to gain more self discipline because I want to become a professional MMA fighter.  So far I have lost 20 pounds, I am much more flexible and I have tons of energy.  Tenbears is the greatest martial arts class in Dayton and it feels like part of my family here. I would definitely recommend this especially as an alternative to karate classes or taekwondo.

~ Angel Burke

Martial Arts DaytonI joined Tenbears MMA mainly to improve on my self defense. The benefits that I have received from this school are endless. Some of the main ones are physical fitness, overall martial arts training and knowledge, and meeting and getting to know others that train many different Martial Arts styles. I have gotten a lot of experience doing ground work (jiu jitsu), also my striking and fitness level have improved by leaps and bounds. I feel the instructor is as much a part of the class as the students. That is something that I don’t see in other school and I think it helps with the overall comradery in the school. My feelings about the school as a whole are it’s a very friendly school and not competitive at all, even though some of the students do compete. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to get into better shape and or learn some real life self defense and/ or MMA.

~Torrey

I love to compete and have always been a big fan of full contact competition. I had wrestled for many years and decided that this would be a more advanced and technique style of competition. Two of the biggest benefits I got from this school and style of training are honor and respect. I learned that honoring and respecting the school, the sensei, and most importantly myself I was able to advance in the sport.  The leadership skills and humility I learned from this school are something I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The feeling I get when I hit the mats and start training is indescribable. The way the classes are taught to the people that train in the school it’s like no other school I have ever been to.  I recommend this school to anyone that is at all interested in training or trying any style of Martial Arts.

~ Brandon

I highly encourage people of all ages and body types to at least try martial arts and see what it can do to improve your quality of life.

 ~JP.

I was at a place where I needed something to help point my life in a positive direction.  I have always wanted to take a martial arts program just never applied myself to it. The humility I have learned from this program is something I will carry with me the rest of my life. The discipline and brotherhood I have gotten from training at Tenbears Martial Arts Academy. I am honored to be able to train under sensei Jim the unity in the school is something I have not seen anywhere else. I would recommend this program to everyone that has the slightest desire to try this kind of training. You can’t go wrong with the free 30 days.

~DANNY HOWARD

I started training at 240 lbs.  Now thanks to Tenbears Martial Arts Academy I am down to 190 lbs. I joined mainly because I wanted to get back in shape. A big benefit to joining Tenbears was that I became part of a family. The love and respect we have for each other is amazing. I have learned discipline, respect and honor from training under Sensei Jim. I would recommend this program to everyone that's interested in hands on reality combat sports  or fitness training.

~BRYAN KNAFF


 I joined Tenbears Martial Arts Academy mainly to get back into shape. As a result my self confidence went way up and my stress level has gone done by leaps and bounds. In the 6 months I have been training here at Tenbears MMA I have lost 30 POUNDS. I have met a great group of guys that I train with, and have also learned a very practical art. The Sensie’s instructions are simple and he really takes the time to make sure that you understand the techniques. The feeling I get at this school isn’t that of a school at all. It reminds me of a family. I would recommend this school to everyone. I have tried so many other schools in the area and none of them compare to the training I get here at Tenbears MMA. Plus with the 30 DAYS FREE you can’t go wrong.

 ~Mike f

I joined the Tenbears Academy in Dayton mainly to lose weight and improve my over all health. Self defense is also important to me and my family. In one month of class (two days a week) I have lost 6 lbs and one pant size. I feel a drastic difference in my stress level too! Sensei Jim is great and there is a real sense of camaraderie in the class. I’m so glad I'm here and would recommend this martial arts school to anyone.

~JASON ROGERS

 The main reason I wanted to train is because I love watching MMA fights on TV. I really just wondered if I could do that type of competition also. I joined Tenbears MMA to try and improve my fighting skills. To say the least I am getting in better shape then I thought I would, I am getting stronger, and my fighting skills have improved drastically. The way the instructor teaches the class is unlike I thought it would be. He really gets in the class just like the students and trains with us. My overall impression of the school is friendly. The way the other student's seem to wanna get to know you kinda caught me off guard, its like a big family. I recommend this program to anyone that wants to improve their self defense skills and or compete.
