In this lesson Georgi show his unique warm up that not only gets you warm - but improves your gripping game. This warm up encourages you to actively not let your opponent grip you by using your hands, body and footwork. This drill is a must for all competitive grapplers.
Lesson 2 - Breaking the lapel grip
If your opponent ever gets a hold of your lapel at times it is really hard to break off. In this lesson Georgi teaches you (in super fine detail) how to break even the strongest of grips using angles and of course leverage. These grip breaks are also used without gripping your opponents gi but instead gripping their wrist.
Lesson 3 - Dealing the lapel grip
This lesson covers the fact that there are times when you want your opponent to have a lapel grip but instead of breaking it off Georgi discusses the importance of controlling the space and not letting your opponent 'turn in' to attack. This lessons is great especially if you always end up in a left vs right scenario.
Lesson 4 - Dealing with the elbow grip
If you watch any international competition you will know that if someone controls your elbow then they are going to throw you for a score. Here Georgi discusses the important of not letting your opponent control you sleeve as well as ways to break it off and start an attack of your own.
Lesson 5 - Using the sleeve grip
In this chapter Georgi shows you how to give your sleeve to your opponent only to set them up for your own Judo attacks. This neat little trick will catch your opponents off guard time and time again.
Lesson 6 - Stopping your opponent 'turning in'
At the elite level of Judo you don't really want your opponent 'turning in' on you. If they turn in they will throw your for a Waza ari or maybe an Ippon score. In this chapter Georgi will show you how to stop your opponent 'turning in' even when they have their favorite grip. This chapter is a must watch for any state, national or international competitor.
Lesson 7 - Randori
Watch Georgi in randori as he mixes footwork, gripping and speed to set up how poor partners. By watching Georgi in action you can see how effective his grip fighting principles and strategies are and you will want to head straight to the dojo to start grip fighting.
Lesson 8 - Bonus newaza techniques
