Bodymechanics drills - Rickson style!!

I think that bodymechanics is a skill you need to work on just like you need to work on technique, strength and cardio. It is something you can do on your own and for me personally, it has really benefitted my game a lot.

I have a pretty large repertoire of bodymechanics drills in my game at the moment, and I am showing my most common in this video. I have not really learned them from anywhere specific, but picked them up a few at a time along the way from seminars, training with different people, ginastica natural videos, capoeira training and also made a few up myself. I hope you can use some of the drills yourself, I would recommend anyone to do them or something similar as a part of their grappling training.

I've wanted to do this video for a very long time, since it is something that people ask me about quite often. Finally I got it done, and I really hope you like it, cause I had sand EVERYWHERE when I was finished LOL

Enjoy :)

Ha! That was amazing. You're my new hero. The only one I haven't seen before was where you drop down to one side with the opposite leg extended and then dive backwards...

Nice, nice, nice! You've given me a couple of new ideas for my solo workouts.

Sadly, I don't have a beach. But I certainly have a wicked looking pair of shades (not as cool as yours or Rickson's, of course...).

Thanks for the bodymechanics clip. I enjoy all your videos, but the takedown one is the best!
