What makes Strike-Based Jiu-Jitsu so effective?

Strike-Based Jiu-Jitsu has a targeted and Systemized approach to punch Defense where we follow basic and specific rules that keep us from getting hit from any position. All of this built with curriculum and structure in mind for both Gi, No Gi, Self Defense and MMA applications.

With that said, our secondary plan is to isolate and attack from the bottom while keeping ourselves save from strikes. Here is just one of many examples of a targeted attack with punch Defense as the primary focus and submission being the secondary focus. In this video we will be working from the Triangle Setup position which is one of the many positions of Absolute Advantage.
