I heard the most ridiculous statement a few days ago.
I overheard high ranking judoka talking to a group of people and saying, “With these new rules, now we can get back to REAL JUDO and stop all of this grip fighting stuff. Grip fighting is dead now.”
WHAT A FREAKING IDIOT!!!!
And no, I don’t enjoy calling people idiots. Nor is it something that I really want to do, but in this case, it is a must.
Because grip fighting is not dead. No where close to being dead. If anything there is MORE OF A PREMIUM put on grip fighting. And its even more important.
Because if I get my hands in the appropriate and right position first and am patient and refuse to “settle” for a bad grip, the rules are in place such that, it makes it very difficult for you to REMOVE my grip
If anything paying attention to gripping now is CRUCIAL
That Jimmy and I
To be honest……
We have not made any.
We teach grip fighting. We teach how to control the gi and get in position to throw.
We teach and instruct people how to attack the sleeve and to grip fight proactively and positively while looking for and creating scoring opportunities.
This is what we have been doing since we have dominated the world of grip fighting instruction in instructional media for almost 10 years now and this is what we will continue to do.
We will teach a brand, style and method of competitive judo that will be relevant no matter how the rules change because we are teaching judo and a method of creating opportunities that is based on strategic hand placement and body positioning.
We are committed to teaching you how to become a more successful judoka and to do so by packaging our years of experience as coaches, players and students of the game to help you become a better teacher, player, coach and judo parent.
That what we are committed to doing.
Have You Seen This
Please LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY to what Jimmy Pedro says about THIS GRIP FIGHTING system and how it has CREATED champions. He mentions everyone from himself to Ronda Rousey to Kayla Harrison.
Listen, if you don’t want this information or think it’s too expensive. That’s cool.
But, I’ve spent, EASILY, over $100K on my judo career, training and development and, Jimmy has spent wayyyyyyy more than that. And the acquisition of such knowledge came at a monetary and physical cost. Lord knows we still pay every morning when we wake up.
So, if you are willing to travel all around the country to go to judo tournaments, you have to be intelligent enough to KNOW that this is a great investment.
It’s less than a plane ticket and a hotel stay. But you will learn so much more.
