FEELING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF, GRAPPLER? THEN WATCH WORLD CHAMP HILLARY WILLIAMS DEMO AN ARMBAR TO AMERICANA ... IN PORTGUÊS.

If today was a day you woke up feeling good about yourself - your career and your Jiu Jitsu - then maybe you should avoid this post altogether.  It's cool and all that you've finally managed to remain employed for more than a couple months and your starting to get a feel for that thing they call the "hip-escape." 

I'm just teasing you, grappler.  You're doing great I'm sure.  Arkansas' Hillary Williams is just a crazy force of nature that few people can hold a candle to.  Let's see - she's about 23 years old, the 2010 Mundial Champion, currently in medical school (yeah, actual medical school) and speaks fluent Portuguese. All that and I think she's only got about 5 years of BJJ training behind her.

I can almost taste the bitterness of your (and my) underachievement.  But, let's not worry about it right now.  Instead let's sit back and learn a solid bread 'n butter setup starting at mount and ending with option for armbar and Americana.

  1. 1)Damn. That was probably the best arm bar tutorial I've ever seen. There was hardly any wriggle room in that.
    2)Damn it. Every time I think I do something original someone does it better and makes a video out of it. Though I go for the americana/arm bar bait position with my shin across the chest and my other leg 's'ed behind the far shoulder.
    3) God damn it. I just turned in the most half ass research project today too and then I come home to this. Bitter doesn't even come close. It's like tasting a kick in the balls.

  2. Slick doesn't even begin to describe that set up. Been doing BJJ since 95, and nothing I've come up with has been that holistic. Do keep this woman as a regular on the DSTRYR radar.
