We were honored to have Professor Babalu Sobral in Eugene and have a seminar at our school this evening. The multitude of techniques for the spider-guard taught tonight will greatly improve our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and provided an arsenal of attacks and sweeps from this position.
The 2 hour seminar consisted in going over the basics of the spider-guard, and leading up to several attacks and sweeps for this position. We ended the night with a positional sparring, so that the technique can be practiced in a live situation. It also allowed a chance for Professor Babalu to fine-tune the technique for each individual.
