Yes, the title of this post was my remix to a Back Street Boys song. I can't help it, I was just so excited to write this post since the back is a wonderful place to be. For example, the back yard, where you can sit and relax or maybe take a dip in the pool. When I was in high school the back of the classroom was usually where you could slack off and not get picked on to answer questions. You also have baby back ribs, those amazing Back 2 the Basics blog posts that I write. And, of course in BJJ, we have "taking the back," which ultimately shows total dominance over your opponent and your are fondly rewarded with four points. I could keep going and going, but I have a video to talk about people.
Matt Darcey (Guerilla Jiu Jitsu Instructor) gives us everything you ever wanted to know about back control. Not only is this video a great tutorial, but Grappling genius, Dave Camarillo, is in it as the victim. For you laymen grapplers, Dave is a Judo and BJJ black belt, coach to the stars, and all around cool guy.
Once you go back you never go.... damn how's that go?
