Jiu-Jitsu Off The Mats: Self Defense With Pedro Sauer.

(Applicable to BJJ and self-defense)
Since the grip is lower, Pedro cannot bring the arm over the shoulder, so instead he turns his body and brings his arm over Luis’ wrist using what looks like a downward elbow. Pinching the arm to his body, Pedro begins turning toward Luis to do a duck under where his head goes underneath the trapped arm. Simultaneously, he catches Luis’ waist with his free arm, so Luis can’t run away from him. Pedro now drives his head upward forcing Luis’ wrist to bend beyond its breaking point.


1. Attacker/opponent grabs lower on the collar near the sternum


2. Turn your body and bring your arm over your opponent’s/attacker’s


3. Duck under entry


4. Begin looking upward to finish wrist lock

(Applicable to BJJ, MMA and self-defense)
Continuing from the previous move, if Luis opts to release the collar, Pedro can move to his back. Immediately upon the release, Pedro body-locks Luis and goes toward his back. Next, Pedro extends his left leg behind Luis’ legs and sits down to trip him. Upon hitting the ground Pedro brings his right leg over Luis to secure a high mount while Luis is on his side. From here he quickly secures Luis’ right arm with his own, slides his left knee up toward the head, posts his left hand on the mat so his arm is against Luis’ face, leans slightly to his right, and then swings his leg over for the armbar.


1. Attacker/opponent releases grip and pulls arm out


2. Trip attacker/opponent to take them down


3. Come on top of attacker/opponent


4. Lock legs to prevent escape


5. Bring knee toward the head


6. Use hand to trap face and post hand


7. Lean slightly to side and swing leg over to finish


Counter – An attack made in response to one by an attacker or opponent.


(Applicable to self-defense)
If an attacker attempted to strangle you while standing would you know what to do? Most people would say to hit him with a groin shot, but what if the attacker still didn’t release the hold? Pedro demonstrates how to initiate some serious pain through the smallest of limbs when Luis forces him against a wall. While doing his best to tuck his chin, Pedro brings both of his hands up and reaches behind him to Luis’ fingertips. As soon as he gets the first good grip on a finger with one hand, he uses his free hand to grip Luis’ wrist. Clamping the secured wrist to his body so Luis can‘t pull away from him, Pedro hyper-extends the selected finger until it snaps.


1. Attacker attempts to strangle you


2. Reach behind the back of your neck and grab first available finger with a pistol grip


3. Grab attackers wrist on the same side


4. Pull finger backward to hyperextend

WARNING: Be extremely careful and perform this technique slowly if practicing. It doesn’t take a lot of pressure to break a finger in a couple of seconds.
