Balance Disruption

The theme of good jujutsu is balance disruption. When you are coaching your training partner, ensure you coach your partner toward the habit of off-balancing you prior to setting in with their main control hold.

Watch the following video and please let me know if you have any questions or thoughts on this subject.

Take care. Fred Crivello

I developed Jujutsu 101, which consists of drills to help you help yourself improve your leverage control and balance disruption for self-defense situations. Fred Crivello

  4. Balance disruption is a vital skill in Jiu-jitsu. In disrupting balance though, it is best to make sure your not putting yourself in a position in which your own balance can easily be disrupted. I prefer to drop in a wide fighting stance with one leg forward one back. This makes it harder for a person grabbing me from the rear to break my balance backward and dump me on my rear end. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Thanks Lori for taking the time and care to share your helpful views. Any drill is limited by its particular purpose and its set up conditions. Your emphasis certainly would (and does) make a very good drill in itself. Again thank you for sharing and I wish you the best in your training and in your helping of others. Fred
