I like magic. I used to fancy myself somewhat of a magician, back in the 7th grade. I even entered a talent show with my best friend; we did magic. My friend almost blew his face up and had to go to the Emergency Room. I don't dabble too much in magic these days. Still, I have to admit that David Blane is one charismatic mother f*^ker.
Jiu Jitsu has magic too. And, it comes in the form of ridiculously slick transitions, sweeps and counters. We love this stuff. Sure, the techniques are seemingly impossible to get on the regular. But, that's what drilling and dreamin' is all about.
Check out this very cool back taking technique from the guard pass brought to us by our teammate, Mike of MMAOutlet.com. Mike recently trained in Japan and came back with a bag of tricky techs we haven't seen Stateside.
