Premier BJJ Training in Bedford, MA | Bernardo Faria Academy

Hey guys today I am here with a living legend, Sergio Penha.  Sergio is a coral belt and has been practicing Jiu Jitsu for more than 50 years.  Sergio was always one of the guys that I would look up to when I was starting bjj and somebody that was considered one of the toughest guys in the world.  People would say that him and Rickson where the toughest bjj guys there was.  Today I asked him to show us some technique so the video is below and then I will do some breakdown.

Breakdown of How To Put A Lot Of Pressure On Side Control By Sérgio Penha:

So guys what I love about training with Sergio is that he has the highest level fundamentals I have ever seen.  I have never see someone who understands the basics so much.  Sergio takes the most simple techniques and makes them very advanced.
So in this case, he is just showing how to really put pressure and some things that I noticed with him are how  screen-shot-2016-12-01-at-6-47-41-pm   high on my body he is and how he makes sure to lift his butt off the mat.  If you keep your butt on the mat then your opponent will be able to move.
So guys, this is a very basic position but Sergio is the master of it and many people have tapped just to his pressure, I hope you enjoyed and like the video, oss!
