Jeff Curran MMA seminar is now in session👊🙏🏽 @bigfrogbjj #mma #mmasunday #jeffcurran

Hello friends!

I’ve been away for a little while, and not really active social wise but it’s good to be back home.

I thought today would be a good day to slowly get back into the swing of things because today Dallas Frasca's brand new EP ‘Dirt Buzz’ is out! I’m stoked because a few months back they came to me asking if I’d like to write some of it with them, which was a huge honour as I've looked up to these guys for years. 4 of the tracks have my DNA in them and I’m very proud of what came out of it. Especially 'Catch Me When I fall' and 'Self Lovin' Is Free'. It’s what happened when Dallas, Jeff and I went away and jammed in a room for a week. It was nice to be involved with the creation of the music and I thank them for the opportunity. Also one of my favourite drummers of all time, Josh Eales plays bloody brilliantly on his track ‘Wasting Time’. You legend. Working at Sing Sing was unreal also, big thanks to Anna Laverty and Sam Swain. Of course Mark Van De Beek on lead artwork.

So! Go check out Dirt Buzz here:

Also, it’s Jeff Curran's birthday! Happy birthday Jeff. You’re one of the great humans/guitarists of our time. Love ya.

Rock on and see ya’s soon. #dallasfrasca #dirtbuzz #jeffcurran #ep #happybirthdayjeff

The grand opening of the @pedro_sauer_bjj_hqs was a huge success. Between having sessions with Master Rickson Gracie and Master Pedro Sauer we also had Professor Jeff Curran teach for about four hours over two nights. Thank you @bigfrogbjj for the great insight, techniques, and roll. It was the first but by no means the last. It's greatly appreciated! #PedroSauer #RicksonGracie #JeffCurran #BigFrog #LankyFG #StandTall #DarceVader #Mongoose

This is a great choke that we worked on yesterday. Make sure your fingertips dig in just to the side of the trachea right on there right carotid artery. This is a blood choke. Also make sure to drive your knees up towards your head when you go for the finish.

To increase the success of your takedowns you should be drilling set ups and combos just like you do on the ground and just as often. Here are some great set ups and combos we worked on today. Remember if you can do it slow you can do it fast. Start slow to make sure you are getting the mechanics and technique down and as you rep it out increase your speed and intensity. #👍 #teamcurran #jeffcurran #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujitsu #bjj #grappling #bjj4life #bjjforlife #bjjlifestyle #bjjgirls #bjjnogi #bjjdrills #bjjvideo #bjj👊 #bjjwoman #bjjvideos #bjjtraining #bjjcompetition #selfdefense #takedown #martialarts #wrestling #judo #sambo

To me one of the greatest tools In Jiu-Jitsu is the guard. As I tell all my students "it is the best Worst position to be in." You'd much rather be on top, self-defense or sport. However what if you're opponent over powers you? What if you wind up on the bottom with a barrage of strikes raining down on you? How can you take control while being in a vulnerable spot like this? Guard!! There many forms of guard. With defensive control, sweeps and submissions for each. You can completely nullify your opponents ability to move, let alone fight from guard. It is the best worst position. Everyone is a rock star on top, but if you can be dangerous and effective off of your back, even sweeping to get on top that is incredibly valuable. #olympusjj #teamcurran #jeffcurran #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujitsu #selfdefense #bjj #bjjgi #bjjnogi #mma #bjjlife #bjjgirls #bjjlifestyle #bjjforlife #bjj4life #bjjtruth #grappling

Position over Submission is senior. It is always better to go for position, this is totally true and you hear this a lot. What isn't talked about enough is Transition. Basically this is the real game in Jiu-Jitsu. Transition can be simply summed up as the points where you and your opponent are both in motion. One may be winning that game and transitioning with more dominance, but until you solidify a Position it is still a Transition state. You can even have a position, let's say top side control, the second your opponent starts to make space to escape it is a transitional point. Grips, body weight displacement, solid contact with good pressure, good base, frames are all great ways to win the Transition game and get you to a controlled Position, now you can attack with Submissions with a higher percentage of finishing them. Control is always the underlying concept in Jiu-Jitsu, top or bottom. But think of those 3 concepts Transition to Position to Submission and you will be much more effective.

Here's a technique I developed about five years ago and I've seen things similar to it, but not quite exactly like it. I call it the Cigar Cutter Choke. Guys it's nasty tight!!! Make sure your right forearm is touching the side of their neck, not their jaw. Also the slow motion part at the end shows the right forearm is under the calf and the right hand bends over the top of the shin as an anchor. Don't do this with the right hand shallow as it will put strain on your right wrist. This technique works great on its own or when your opponent is defending against the triangle. Drill it and use it. Enjoy! #olympusjj #teamcurran #jeffcurran #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujitsu #bjj #grappling #bjjnogi #bjjgi #bjj👊 #bjjgirls #bjjlifestyle #bjjforlife #bjjtraining #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjvideos #bjjlovers #bjjchoke #bjjtriangle
