M1 kickback pass ->
knee on belly
I must be one of the worst club members ever. I won't be able to join in on the fun tonight either. Got some assignments and work work to do. Wishing everyone safe and fun rolls tonight!
We had an amazing turnout for the club open mat, with guests USC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu , UCI-Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu , and UCSD’s BJJ club! This is the first time these schools have held a joint practice together, and it was an absolute blast! Hope to meet up again soon!
We continued exploring SLX and covered a defense to the SLX sweep we went over last known as the "Rocha Run".
In case you missed class last night or simply want to review what we covered, check this link showing an open guard entry -> shin-to-shin guard -> flip up into SLX -> K-control SLX sweep -> straight ankle lock finish.

What’s Brazilian jiu-jitsu? No! No. Yes!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a submission-based grappling martial art that was originally derived from Judo. Sometimes referred to just as jiu-jitsu or BJJ, the focus is on using superior technique and dominant positions to control and eventually submit an opponent. This is done using chokeholds and joint locks to force an opponent to ‘tap out’ or submit. USC BJJ specifically practices no-gi jiu-jitsu.

USC BJJ Fall 2021: Practice times & more!


***Fall 2021 Announcement***
Hello Trojans! USC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been dormant since the onset of Covid-19. With the 2021 school year fast approaching, we’re excited at the prospect of resuming club activities. We’ve gotten a lot of interest in the club over the last year and want to keep USC BJJ alive.

But, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Most of our board members have graduated and moved on. The club will need students interested in taking over board member positions to help keep USC BJJ in good standing with the Recreational Club Council (RCC). This would entail attending a handful of RCC meetings, joining club practices as often as possible, and supporting club management. If interested, please email [email protected]. Let us know if you have any previous experience in managing clubs and/or BJJ experience.

We’re waiting to hear from RCC about resuming activities for fall 2021. At this time we do not have a practice schedule or any details beyond what’s in this post.

Thanks and Fight on!
Coach Scott Palmer & Coach Avram Cohn


We will be canceling practice this week due to scheduling conflicts and (conveniently) to also follow-suit with other RCC clubs that are canceling practice this week.

Have a great break! Practice will resume March 24th unless otherwise posted.

Lock down to dog fight

Hi everyone-
We'll try and post videos from previous practice on here so you can keep in the loop. The club has spent the last few classes learning all things lock down. Check out this video to see (audio isn't great, use headphones!)
A.) Getting double under-hooks when your opponent has head and arm.
B.) Getting to dog fight if you can't get the "old school" sweep.
C.) For people in the lock down, using the whizzer / pushing the head to limp leg out.
