BJJ Scout: Demian Maia Study Part 1 – Primary Passes & MMA Guard Evolution

BJJ Scout: Demian Maia Study Part 1 – Primary Passes & MMA Guard Evolution


翻译:四号 时间轴:紫字 校对:Rev
感谢BJJ Scout的解析,翻译水平有限请多包涵 玛雅主要有两种过腿方式 一种是从四分之三骑乘过腿 玛雅在半防守中 并没有试图强行从防守中拔出他的腿 而是会试着将对手的膝盖往箭头方向推压下来 这就是四分之三骑乘
(玛雅的腿依然被困住) 另一个角度来看的话
从四分之三骑乘中更容易将腿拔出来 过腿,完成骑乘 这是另一个角度 第二种是折叠式过腿/压迫式穿腿 这就是压迫式穿腿 注意玛雅和对手双腿交织位置
(黄色是玛雅的腿,绿色是对手的腿) 膝盖塞进去,箍颈推脸 过腿,完成骑乘 这是另一个角度 Gambledub有一篇详尽的玛雅分析文
解说了玛雅这2种过腿方式和其他技术
链接在下面(还有我做的Rodolfo Vieira压迫式穿腿分析) 说完了,这两种过腿方式你花5分钟就能了解
那为什么其他人不学玛雅那样过腿呢? 技术+策略才是顶级上位的武器 玛雅过防守研究 PART1
基本过腿和MMA防守变革 首先我们快速了解一下蝴蝶式防守 总有人说蝴蝶式防守是“MMA最佳防守” 为什么? 典型的MMA过腿:
GSP跨步迈过对方的一条腿进入半防守 现在GSP进入了半防守 GSP有一只手空着,他可以做两件事:
一是击打,二是箍颈推脸 箍颈推脸 箍颈推脸锁住对手+曲膝楔入
基本就是十拿九稳的过腿 典型MMA下位防守对策:
往内翻身,曲臂推开上位并重组防守
又称虾行 但是如果你曲臂太迟
或者空间不够,虾行没啥作用 手臂塞不进去 没曲臂,很容易就会被上位放平 过腿了 GSP用箍颈推脸和地面打击成功闯过很多早期MMA地面防守
*这也是基础柔术技巧 顺带一提,虾行只是恢复防守的其中一种方法:
A.肘部推搡/伸臂推开(Marcelo Garcia)
B.格兰比滚/反向半防守(Ryan Hall/Buchecha)
C.彼得森滚(Eduardo Telles)
D.放克滚(Ben Askren
E.塞腿/控制二头肌(Miyaos/Lo) 事实上,虾行对于高水平地面选手来说
是最不爱用的方法之一 半防守的其中一个变革
就是可以切换到蝴蝶式防守
(比虾行更好) 如果上位过腿已经做到下面几点,蝴蝶式防守就是关键:
已经进入半防守/你被箍颈推脸/背部放平 GSP用同样的方法来对付BJ Penn
1.踏进半防守 地面砸拳 箍颈推脸,距离过腿还差一步 这种情况下,Penn不会徒劳尝试
往内侧翻身虾行来对抗GSP的箍颈推脸 而是将腿塞进去 然后小腿就蹬在GSP的臀部,抬升GSP 这样Penn就有足够空间回复蝴蝶式防守
阻止了GSP的过腿 将MMA中的防守进行“扫”和“捕”的区分有助于分析理解选手战术
我会制作一个视频详谈这个二分法的理由
(不用那些运动柔术的术语) 不过现在我们要知道一点
蝴蝶式防守是一种“扫摆”式防守 Miguel Torres从蝴蝶式半防守切到蝴蝶式防守 现在他的两条腿起到抬升对手的作用 扫摆 蝴蝶式防守之所以流行起来
就是因为能够扫摆对手或者回复站立 用双腿抬高对手+上半身坐起 为了阻止蝴蝶式防守,上位重心要放低
上半身也要压下去阻止下位坐起 这样做就要同时压制住下位的双腿和背部
传统的过腿和地面砸拳很难发挥 压制住下位双腿和背部 下半身基本固定不动,无法过腿
上半身也不能挺身打击下位 无所作为
只能等裁判分开双方 认识玛雅的过腿机制是一方面 但这样的话又会引出另一个问题 玛雅怎么一进地面就拿到这样的起手位置呢?
半防守 压迫式穿腿
(准备切换四分之三骑乘) 实战中没人一开始就能进入这样的位置
尤其是面对有经验有技术的地面防守玩家 要回答这个问题
我们必须看看玛雅要优先完成的目标是什么 在下一个视频,我会说明为何玛雅是
改良版的反蝴蝶式防守大杀器

  1. Saw and read Gambledub's article before this, loved it and I was saying to myself you have to make a video of this and boom here you are!lol I knew you couldn't resist? I had been wanting to study Damien Maia more closely for a long time now.Tjhanks for your commitment and passion BJJSCOUT.

  2. I just started training at Gracie Academy, and they very heavily emphasize BJJ with defense for strikes in consideration. Although I love watching BJJ matches and I love watching the evolution of the sport, I wonder how BJJ would evolve as rapidly in the self-defense realm if the entire community was dedicated to innovation with strikes in mind. Not making a judgement call, because I love sport BJJ too, but I'm just being curious out loud.

  3. Demian Maia Grappling is on another level! people don't understand what he's doing and they say he's boring, but to me he's an amazing fighter, his fight with Gunnar Nelson was incredible!!

  4. +BJJSCOUT Your vids are awesome, glad to see them back up, hope you do well with the UFC 🙂

  5. Thanks a lot for the videos. I am new to BJJ and these videos are helping me understand what I am suppose to do when rolling.

  6. what happened to the Rory and Woodley breakdown? That vid was awesome plus 2 awesome songs to boot. Anyone know the songs? Including these songs?

  7. hey, here is a good video on unfairly getting your videos taken down by youtube
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wysDMhCbfTE

  8. As Maia is a close friend of Marcelo Garcia who's spent countless hours on the mats together I have no doubt he's learned a very high level guard passing game against the butterfly guard.

  9. Man your videos are hands down the best mma analysis period, any way you could just slow it down a bit, the tune and everything work so well with it that I want to take in every bit of it but the reading is WAY to quick to even read, nevermind think about for just one second and appreciate. LOVE YOUR VIDS MAN ,!!!

  10. LOVE THIS! please do more "concept" kind of videos like this in the future. its great to see upcoming fights be broken down, but i love seeing videos in this style keep up the great work! much love from toronto

  11. I was looking for the dom cruz footwork vids for ages! your study is actually amazing. I recommend you look up "golovkin: the lost art of shifting" for an indepth understanding of "the dart" and how stanceweight shifting is critical for the modern stand up artist

  12. I know you are focused on pt. 2. But is there anyway you could make a Jon Jones film study for UFC 200 considering he's the headliner for the landmark event? Regardless thank you for making these film studies they are by far the best breakdowns on the net.

  13. Excellent video thank you !
    Seeing that leg weave transition directly to mount reminds me of bj penn
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=extNlPQ5DLc

  14. You are the man! Your vids are so cerebral and methodical. I admit I'm a slow reader so I have to pause them a bit but they are first class. Keep them coming. My fave Bjj channel + fave Bjj/MMA guy = awesome video. Can't wait for the next one!

  15. i love your videos and thank you for making them. 🙂

    I do believe that Maia is an elite guard passer, though I'm not convinced that's what happening to most of his opponents. I'm seeing weak guard retention mixed with weak clinching knowledge off of their backs. They're simply allowing Maia to take the overhook in most cases and he's just sliding to the side and reacting. I'd be curious to see how someone like Hendricks or jacare reacted to him in their guard, knowing that they do use intelligent hand positions from the top. It's the same when I teach my guys how to fight rubber guard, it's basic bicep control with an emphasis on staying vertical that stops their offense

  16. Dude, you're some kind of super genius. Love your videos, keep them coming. Hope the new UFC owners are less aggressive with the take down notices.

  17. When will you release part 2 dear scout? cause this video looked so short and introductory that I assumed you were just running against time. Also I'd like to thank you for all your videos and breakdowns, hoping to watch Maia vs Nelson as a matter of example for Maia's grappling skills development in part 2.

  18. Would love you to do a Jacre Souza breakdown. But I trully appreciate all your hard work on all your vids. Thank You

  19. Hey Scout,found one of him doing some guard work,I rarely see him actually on bottom in MMA so I totally forgot what he does from there,I saw the Anaconda Guard dvd as well (I am basically trying to clone his game _with a few additions and subtractions- and see what happens): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-jZIqW6I9o -nevermind,looks like he was going over the redirection principle again.

  20. Any breakdown for the fights coming up for UFC 200?? Would love to look into these breakdowns for those fights

  21. Maia has arguably the best jiu-jitsu in MMA right now. He's just a great guard passer and knows when to apply pressure.

  22. Great video. Can you give an example of the Peterson roll for guard recomposition? I see more examples from turtle but not from guard. Thanks!

  23. Great vid man, would be even better if you slowed it down a little in the text portions as I was a little rushed in reading it. Great info though.

  24. At 1:00. Not saying it's the case for Maia, since his jujitsu is the bomb. But if someone else would try to implement his strategy, wouldn't you open up for a kneebar?

  25. This is the 3rd(and by far best so far)Demian Maia video I have come across today, and the one thing Ive noticed amongst the comment sections are people referring to his style as"boring"…..seriously?! If you really think that, then you must be a very uneducated fight fan

  26. This is such a dope series!!! After training gi only 6 months i stumbled onto this channel. Squeezed in 1 day a week for nogi. I watch Demian Maia breakdown 1-4 every day. Just having these theories fresh in my head when training helps open the white belt "tunnel". It will be 11 months the end of Febuary and professor has told me its time for a blue belt. Jiu Jitsu has changed my life for the better and your videos have changed my Jiu Jitsu for the better. Thank you

  27. Is there anywhere I can read or watch more about the concept of 'sweeping v trapping' in MMA guards. Mentioned at 3:40

  28. Thank's for the subtitles in Spanish, that's a great tool for the latino american people.
    Gracias por los subtítulos, es una gran herramienta para los latinos.

  29. BJJScout, could you please do a video highlighting the techniques, and when to use them, that you mentioned in regards to regarding? The list you made is at 2:51 of this video.

  30. @BJJSCOUT How is this leg-weave passing game going to change now that the DDS / Cross Ashi Garami / Saddle / rX-Guard game has come to prominence? I notice Maia doesn't even bother to keep his foot hooked in MMA; is the deep underhook enough to keep the Leglock game at bay in a NoGi context?

  31. This just popped up in my feed. Even though I prefer the "voice overs" You still get a Thumbs Up 👍😘. Always interesting.

  32. Dope mount is easily countered by the reverse x saddle entry to heel hook as long as the bottom guy frames and prevents head and arm control.

  33. Yo, thanks so much for doing these. Really turned my ear to grappling. Do you think you can show how we got to these positions from standing?
