the only mount escape you will ever need
The Upa Mount Escape
42 videos on just the upa?
This is a unique video series for Hidden Jiu-Jitsu in that we have hours of footage focused on just this one technique. It's part of what I'm calling the "Mastery Series" and reflects a big shift for how I will be presenting my Jiu-Jitsu.
For years I've been teaching the hidden details that make your Jiu-Jitsu unstoppable, but now we are moving deeper into the fundamental problems of application. Meaning how do we take you from knowing the hidden details to applying them in live training against highly skilled opponents who are resisting 100% against your techniques?
Why do people give up on the basics before mastering them?
→ Many times what happens in class is we learn a technique and drill it a number of times before we move to live training. The problem with this model of learning is you never get to build competence against resistance in any sort of meaningful progression. You're trying to go from zero to 100 in one step. A much better way to approach your training is to dial up the resistance slowly, and explore the different possibilities slowly, one step at a time, so you can build real skill with a technique. When you approach your learning methodically like this, you get a compound interest effect, where your skill and competence are always building in the same direction and over time, they begin to multiply exponentially.
→ One big piece of the puzzle to developing the basics to that unstoppable level of skill is to explore the different defenses and methods of resisting your techniques. Once you become familiar with all the different ways your opponent can defend or resist, you begin to build the timing, instincts and muscle memory you need to be effective in any situation.
Skill Level: Basic - Advanced
What Will I Learn?
✓ How to perfect the angle of the upa escape so it works no matter how your opponent tries to base out.
✓ How to effectively drive with your hips so your energy doesn't stop.
✓ How to use the upa effectively when strikes are involved.
✓ How to bridge the gap between learning this technique and applying it in training against fully resisting opponents.
✓ You will get access to all 30 videos I filmed for this special Upa seminar, PLUS 12 Upa videos I filmed to help you completely understand and master the material. One thing I noticed as a teacher is many times when we see a technique from a different angle or spoken about even a slightly different way, it clicks and we have that "aha" moment we need to really get it. That's why I filmed these 12 videos with 10th Planet Las Vegas head coach, and coach to many high-level UFC fighters Casey Halstead, on how to master every aspect of this technique, from every situation.
