Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Beginners : Standing Leg Sweep Move in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Beginners : Standing Leg Sweep Move in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Hi! This is Aaron Fruitstone and Liz Muller
from Chi Martial Arts in Miami Shores, Florida. You can reach us on the web at
The next basic Brazilian jiujitsu technique that you will be learning is Osoto Gari or
standing leg reap. We are going to be in a position where I have a hand on her collar
and hand on her elbow. She is going to take the same position with the hand on my collar
and hand on my elbow. This is a position a lot of jiujitsu people will get in when they
are standing up try to take the other person down, it is a control position. What Liz is
going to do to take me down she is going to step with her outside foot to bring herself
side to side to me then with her rearfoot she is going to bring it around and hook it
behind my leg, as she lifts with her leg, she is going to push with her arms, taking
me to the ground. She has control of this arm if she wants it for a different submission.
Again we will do it in a normal speed and now normal speed from a different angle…

  • hooking the leg is incorrect. you shouldn't hook the leg because he can then counter pretty easily. that sweep is supposed to be performed with a straight leg, never hook.

    I was just trying to answer your question in by letting your answer it yourself lol .. sometimes our tone doesn't translate well over the net. but anyway BJJ comes from judo. The founder of BJJ was taught judo from one of Kano's students. That's the reason you will see a lot of similarities.

  • What is the easiest submission to go for when your in that position over the person you've just taken down? Arm bar?

  • I'd say it's rather a question of what submissions you are good at, but that covers most situations.
    Obviously if the arm is stretched like that an armbar would be convenient. But usually people would try and protect that arm immediately because that armbar is such and obvious attacking point.
    Short question, long anwser xP
    So, yeah. If your opponent is stupid enough or you're just really fast and really tight when you do it. You'd probably manage to do an armbar.

  • this ir wrong, when i practice jiu jitsu they make the same mistakes, but taking a few classes ( a lot really jejej) the mistakes they all gone…. for throw lesson, a judo teacher, for grown jiu jitsu….that was my experience and i hope you listening, thanks!

  • @tpbisdivine NO……..the founder was taught by a japanese immagriant who was a master of japanese jiu jitsu the reason you see simalarities in judo an BJJ is because judo was made from japanese jiu jitsu by kano

  • Prince 52boxing MMA says:

    @THEPIELORD42 No… The founder of BJJ was taught by one of Kano's students/ Kano sent his students abroad to teach and one of them taught the Gracies . In a sense you are right too being that Kano was also a master at jui jistu but I am in not wrong. sorry

  • @tpbisdivine i was watching a documentary on the gracies and they said jiu jitsu plus its called brazilian jiu jitsu not brazilian judo

  • Prince 52boxing MMA says:

    @THEPIELORD42 All you gotta do is ask a Bjj guy or Google it yourself, At the time a lot people used judo and jui jistu interchangeably since judo is really just a modified version of jui jitsu anyway. In essence Judo ,BJJ, Sambo all have roots with jiu jistu however the FACT remains it was Kano's student who taught the Graicies so BJJ comes from Judo.

  • @Klammerapfe I know this works regardless especially in a world where 99% of people don't know how to really fight! The average white belt would destroy the average regular person!

  • @jtutch They are putting out informational videos to the public douchebag, not leading an advanced clinic. They are intending to show people who don't even have a white belt or who are on white belt the basics of the move. Beeeeesides, technique on that level will be more of a personalized finding than a taught procedure.

  • thats harai goshi in judo :L,bjj dont do that move because its harder to execute and exsculate to the floor and can get thrown whilst trying :L

  • No Greater Love says:

    ..I've always done this as a kid, and it always worked. But these days, my friends have a good stance and know its coming. its actually a very predictable move, and an obvious way to take someone down :/…a trip and a push.

  • PlymouthColony says:

    I learned this in judo years and years ago. People who are saying it is worthless are misunderstanding how to use techniques in a fight. You don't walk up to someone who's just standing there and put the move on them. You are grappling in a clinch and your opponent moves, you feel his weight shift or some other favorable feedback, and so you put this move on him. It's part of your arsenal that you use in a dynamic fight. Think dynamic, not static. These are really good beginnner videos, IMHO.

  • What he missed is getting your opponent off balance. Thats the first part of the technique and a crucial one. Push them up, back, and to the foot your sweeping and the move will work even better.
