Happy New Years!!!
(In Which We Are Introduced to Caio Terra Online)
One of the changes that I’m making this year is to write a lot more on this blog and as a guest contributor on other blogs and in Jiu Jitsu Mag. For the last 2 years I’ve had an amazing experience with Kris Shaw and BJJ Legends and I can’t thank her (and their fans) enough for the opportunity to write/blog at BJJ Legends. Doors have opened that never would have otherwise and I’m going to explore them as much as possible. So that said, let’s get to the 1st post of the New Year:
It probably won’t surprise anyone reading this that I have or have had subscriptions to several on-line instruction sites. I’ve used MGinAction, Mendes Bros Online, BJJ Library, Grappler’s Guide and most recently Caio Terra online. All of them have their upsides and are a great tool if you’re looking for good on-line instruction from a trusted source.
However, Caio Terra has really set himself apart from the rest by having structured lesson plans that are regularly posted in addition to new techniques. One of the biggest challenges for newer BJJ students is information overload and the lesson plans do a great job of focusing your attention on specific part of your game and of course Caio’s instruction is excellent. At the end of each month there will also be an interactive (for subscribers) mindmap to use as a reminder of what was shown the previous month.
For the month of December Caio’s Lesson plans focused mostly on the half guard with a single lesson plan showing some nogi options when you opponent is standing. Check out the map below and you may have missed.
