ABOUT THE JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY FUNDAMENTALS PROGRAM

WELCOME TO THE JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY FUNDAMENTALS PROGRAM. THIS IS AN OUTLINE TO HELP YOU SEE EVERYTHING THAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE IMPORTANT AND FUNDAMENTAL IN THE JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY SYSTEM. THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL FUNDAMENTALS PROGRAM AND THERE IS A CHANCE YOU WON’T FIND A PROGRAM AS IN DEPTH AS THIS ONE. IT MAY SEEM LIKE A LOT TO TAKE IN BUT REMEMBER, FUNDAMENTALS ARE FOR LIFE OF TRAINING, AND NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU LEARN IN JUST A YEAR AND THEN NOT PRACTICE OR THINK OF THEM AGAIN.

YOU WILL FIND MANY SECTIONS AND SUB-SECTIONS IN THIS PROGRAM WHICH LEADS TO WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE A VERY COMPREHENSIVE FUNDAMENTALS PROGRAM.

THESE ARE CONSIDERED FUNDAMENTALS BUT THEY ARE ADVANCED FUNDAMENTALS. EACH THING WILL BE EXPLAINED IN AN IN-DEPTH MANNER THAT IS NOT THE NORM IN CLASSES.

THE MAIN THING IS TO GIVE YOU IDEAS TO WORK WITH. AS YOU DO WITH YOUR GRAPPLING AND JIU-JITSU, MAKE THIS YOUR OWN AND TWEAK IT WITH YOUR OWN BELIEFS AND WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED THROUGHOUT YOUR TRAINING.

LINKS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THIS OUTLINE TO CONTENT ON THE JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY THAT HAS BEEN FILMED. YOU CAN FIND A DETAILED INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS THAT COMPLEMENT EVERYTHING IN THIS CURRICULUM. JUST CLICK ON THE LINK AND IT’LL TAKE YOU TO THE VIDEO ON THE JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY.

HOW TO APPROACH THIS PROGRAM

BEGINNER - IF YOU ARE A COMPLETE BEGINNER WITH NOT MUCH EXPERIENCE THE GOAL IS TO GET THE IDEA FOR MANY THINGS. IT’S NOT EXPECTED THAT YOU LEARN EVERY SINGLE THING DETAILED FOR EACH TOPIC, TECHNIQUE, OR CONCEPT IN THIS PROGRAM. JUST GET YOUR FEET WET AND LEARN THE INITIAL STEPS TO EACH THING. AFTER YOU START GETTING THE IDEA, THEN CLEAN THINGS UP AS YOU GO. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE TO BE PERFECT.

ADVANCED BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE - BY THIS POINT YOU SHOULD HAVE A GOOD FOUNDATION OF THE THINGS IN THIS PROGRAM AND WHILE YOU MAY NOT BE USED TO EVERYTHING OR KNOW EVERYTHING, THIS IS WHERE YOU START CLEANING UP AND LEARNING THE CONCEPTS AND TECHNIQUES THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW. NEVER GET DISCOURAGED BECAUSE AS STATED BEFORE, THIS IS A FOREVER LEARNING AND TRAINING AREA FOR EVERYONE. AT THE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL THERE SHOULD BE A BEGINNING OF STARTING TO LEARN HOW TO IMPLEMENT ASPECTS OF THIS PROGRAM INTO MANY DIFFERENT AREAS OF TRAINING. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR COACH'S ADVICE AND EXPLORE.

ADVANCED - AT THIS POINT IT’S EXPECTED FOR YOU BE AWARE OF ALL ASPECTS IN THIS PROGRAM. YOU DON’T NEED TO BE PERFECT AND NO ONE EVER WILL BE, BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE A VERY GOOD FOUNDATION AND UNDERSTANDING. IF SOMEONE ASKS YOU ABOUT THINGS IN THIS PROGRAM THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE A GOOD IDEA OF EACH THING. TAKE THE TIME TO CLEAN IT ALL UP EVEN MORE. START STUDYING THE SMALL DETAILS MORE AND MORE AND WORK ON YOUR IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF ALL ASPECTS IN THIS PROGRAM. IDEALLY, YOU SHOULD HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OR BE WORKING ON HAVING AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO INPUT THE TECHNIQUES AND CONCEPTS IN THIS PROGRAM INTO MANY DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF GRAPPLING.

TEACHERS/COACHES - IF YOU ARE A TEACHER OR COACH THEN YOU SHOULD STUDY EVERY SINGLE ASPECT OF THIS PROGRAM OVER AND OVER AGAIN. STUDY ALL OF THE DETAILS AND ALWAYS PRACTICE THEM THROUGHOUT YOUR TRAINING. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU PRACTICE WHAT YOU TEACH. THIS ISN’T SOMETHING YOU STUDY ONCE AND THEN NEVER STUDY AGAIN. BEFORE YOU TEACH A CLASS THAT IS RELATED TO ANYTHING IN THE PROGRAM THEN COME BACK TO THE MATERIALS IN THIS PROGRAM AND STUDY THEM FOR A REFRESHER. ALSO, COME TO OUR COMMUNITY AND DISCUSS AND ASK QUESTION.

FUNDAMENTAL PHILOSOPHIES

THESE AREN’T THINGS YOU’LL JUST SEE IN AN EVERYDAY CURRICULUM. THESE ARE THINGS THAT SHOULD BE INSTILLED IN YOUR TRAINING OR YOUR STUDENTS TRAINING THROUGHOUT THEIR LIFE OF TRAINING. TALK ABOUT THEM IN CLASSES. TALK ABOUT THEM DURING PRIVATE LESSONS. TALK ABOUT THEM WITH SIDE MAT CHATS. BUT THEY SHOULD BE PUT INTO THE MIND OF EVERY GRAPPLER TO SET THEM UP WITH A STRONG MENTAL APPROACH TO THEIR GRAPPLING.

  1. FUNDAMENTALS PHILOSOPHY INTRO
  2. PURPOSE OF FUNDAMENTALS
  3. FOR EVERYONE, NOT JUST BEGINNERS
  4. UNDERSTAND YOUR DIRECTION
  5. INITIAL GUARD APPROACH
  6. FOCUS ON ESCAPES
  7. DICTATE AND LEAD
  8. FOCUS ON SET-UPS, CLEAN UP SUBMISSIONS
  9. JACK OF ALL TRADES MASTER OF NONE
  10. GUARD CONTROL, RETENTION, AND SWEEPS BEFORE SUBMISSIONS
  11. STANDING TO OPEN GUARD
  12. STAY UP WHEN IN GUARD
  13. TOP GAME - CONTROL AND MOVEMENT WILL LEAD TO BETTER ATTACKS
  14. FALL 7 GET UP 8
  15. OFFENSIVE MINDSET. TRY TO NOT BE WARY
  16. GET IN THE MIX AND THICK OF THINGS
  17. CONTROL THE CRAZINESS
  18. TECHNIQUE FIRST, ATTRIBUTES SECOND BUT ATTRIBUTES ARE IMPORTANT!
  19. IMPORTANT TO ROLL WITH SPAZZES AND NEWBIES (FOR EXPERIENCED GRAPPLERS)
  20. TAKE DOWN DEFENSE BEFORE OFFENSE (ZERO PREVIOUS TAKE DOWN EXPERIENCE)

FUNDAMENTAL TECHNICAL CONCEPTS

THESE ARE TECHNICAL CONCEPTS THAT I CONSIDER TO BE FUNDAMENTAL AND THAT SHOULD BE LEARNED EARLY ON IN TRAINING. THESE CONTAIN ACTUAL CONCEPTS AND MOVEMENTS THAT CAN AND SHOULD BE PRACTICED.

  1. THE REDIRECTION DRILL
  2. UNDERSTANDING GUARD RETENTION ZONE VS ESCAPING ZONE
  3. KNOWING WHEN TO SCOOT AND TO SHRIMP
  4. COMPLETING THE PASS CONCEPTS
  5. ESCAPING TO THE KNEES AS OPPOSED TO DIRECTLY TO GUARD (NO LEG FRAME)
  6. WHY FIGHTING FROM THE KNEES FOR BEGINNERS IS HELPFUL (ZERO PREVIOUS TAKE DOWN EXPERIENCE)
  7. FORCE TO HALF GUARD AND “STEP STEP” CONCEPT
  8. PRACTICING THE CONCEPT OF TOP GAME MOVEMENT (WHEN NEEDED!)
  9. CONTROLLING AND GAUGING DISTANCE
  10. THE “WET DOG” CONCEPT
  11. ELBOWS IN/ELBOWS DOWN CONCEPT (NO-GI AND GI)

FUNDAMENTAL TECHNIQUES

NOTE: EVERYTHING IN THE FUNDAMENTALS PROGRAM TECHNIQUE LIST SHOULD BE APPROACHED WITH A CONCEPTUAL APPROACH. INSTEAD OF THINKING ABOUT THEM AS JUST TECHNIQUES, THEY SHOULD BE THOUGHT ABOUT AS STEPPING STONES AND STARTING POINTS FOR MORE THINGS IN YOUR FUTURE TRAINING. FUNDAMENTALS ARE NOT JUST TECHNIQUES EVEN IF IT LOOKS LIKE IT. THEY ARE BUILDING BLOCKS.

  5. GUARD OFFENSE
    • SWEEPS (DISCUSS THE CONCEPTUAL THEORIES BEHIND THESE SWEEP OPTIONS AS WELL AND HOW THEY CAN BE USED AS BUILDING BLOCKS) NOTE: MANY OF THE “OPEN” GUARD SWEEPS YOU SEE ON HERE ARE TO EXPOSE YOURSELF AND THE STUDENT WITH DIFFERENT TYPES OF GUARD. IF YOU ARE JUST A STUDENT TRAINING, THIS WILL HELP YOU BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE POSITION INITIALLY AND IF YOU ARE A TEACHER, UNLESS YOU ARE VERY “GAME” SPECIFIC IN YOUR TEACHING APPROACH, IT WILL HELP EXPOSE YOUR STUDENTS TO DIFFERENT GUARD POSITIONS SO LATER IN THEIR TRAINING IT CAN HELP THEM CHOOSE THEIR PRIMARY GUARDS.

SINCE MANY SCHOOLS DO NOT PRACTICE TAKE DOWNS AS MUCH, IT’S A GOOD IDEA FOR ALL GRAPPLERS TO GET EXPOSED TO DIFFERENT OPTIONS. THEN IT’S THE INSTRUCTORS JOB TO HELP THE STUDENT DISCOVER WHICH OPTIONS THEY SHOULD MAKE SOLID IN THEIR GAME. IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE TAKE DOWN OPTIONS SHOULD BE KNOWN BY EVERY GRAPPLER OFFENSIVELY.)

NONE OF THESE DRILLS ARE SET IN STONE AND THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES YOU CAN USE. USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND YOUR EXPERIENCE TO CREATE MORE DRILLS THAT WILL HELP YOU WITH YOUR FUNDAMENTALS (OR YOUR STUDENTS.) THESE ALSO DON’T REPLACE SITUATIONAL ROLLING AS WELL. SITUATIONAL ROLLING IS ONE OF THE BEST GRAPPLING DRILLS YOU CAN POSSIBLY DO.

  14. LET PARTNER GET BEHIND YOU SITTING GUARD DRILL

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS AN “ORGANIC” PROGRAM. WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT NOTHING IN THIS PROGRAM IS CONSIDERED TO BE PERMANENT. IT DOES NOT MEAN THIS PROGRAM IS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER. IT’S JUST MY STRONG VIEW ON WHAT I FEEL IS IMPORTANT FOR EVERY GRAPPLER TO BE EXPOSED TO IN TO HAVE A STRONG FUNDAMENTAL BASE. THROUGH TIME WITH DISCOVERIES PERSONALLY OR WITH OTHERS, THIS PROGRAM MAY CHANGE. I AM ALWAYS LEARNING AND EVOLVING AND YOU SHOULD AS WELL.
