TECHNIQUE

Relson Gracie Maryland is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school that places emphasis on training BJJ for self defense. At least 2x per week, students engage in Fight Simulation training where one student plays the role of an un-trained attacker and the other acts as the Jiu-Jitsu student. The role of the attacker is to use strikes to teach the other student where they are exposed during their movements. The student utilizing Jiu-Jitsu must subdue the attacker using strikes, submissions, takedowns, and standard control positions. Here, instructor Mike Johnson, a Pedro Sauer Black Belt, leads one of his students through a fight simulation.
