Going Upside Down: A beginners guide to inverting for BJJ by Budo Jake (On Demand)
In "Going Upside Down" Gracie Barra black belt Budo Jake teaches the very basics of learning how to invert. While inverting is very common in "modern jiu-jitsu" as a way to attack and sweep (berimbolo), not many instructors are able to break it down into a way that beginners can understand. With his vast training experience, Jake shows a variety of drills that will make you more comfortable inverting as a way to not only improve your guard recovery, but also to make your jiu-jitsu training more fun. "Going Upside Down" starts out as Jake does commentary over high level competitors using inversions in competition and then he gives you plenty of drills to work on by yourself and with a partner.
About Budo Jake: Jake is a black belt under Carlos Gracie Jr and has travelled the globe training with many of the top athletes and instructors. His other instructional releases are "The Reverse Kimura" & "Effective Wristlocks for BJJ".
