There are two common reactions when people read the title of this video: "BJJ White belt can Submit a Blackbelt!!!👍"
Reaction # 1 "A White belt can NEVER submit a Blackbelt, and even if he did, that Blackbelt can't be very good!"
Reaction # 2. Hmm... A White belt submitting a Black belt? How is that even possible? I want to know more...
Both reactions are natural. How could someone who has spent more than ten years of sweat and grind be submitted by a novice practitioner? Well... some people are more open to new information and ready to try new things without judgment, while others instinctively protect their status quo by discarding new ideas. Psychologically, the benefit of not accepting new ideas is that it requires absolutely no effort, and you can remain inside your comfort zone. The problem with this is that you might end up being submitted by a white belt so watch out! 😂
Here at Grapplinginstructionals, we believe that the most remarkable thing about BJJ is that no matter how much we know, there is always more to learn because our beloved art of Jiu-Jitsu never stops evolving! Just look how leg-locks that were once frowned upon as dirty and plain ineffective completely revolutionized the game of Jiu-Jitsu.
The LOCKDOWN is no different, a game-changer that still has not gone mainstream. The reason is that there are too few instructors outside of the 10th Planet System (NoGi) that can teach it to their students. The reality is that in most academies the students will drill specific techniques a few times before moving on to something else, not given enough time for a deeper understanding of the techniques, let alone a whole system. With so many techniques available, it is easy to become a "Jack of all trades, master of none." (General knowledge vs. Specific knowledge)
Another critical factor is effectiveness. What is the value of general knowledge in many areas if you're still completely lost when it comes to regular sparring or competition? To prevent this from happening, focusing early on a single system with high effectiveness is positive for your development. That does not mean you should stay only within the parameters of that system, but rather that the system becomes your fundamentals, and you build and integrate from there! Also, if the system you chose to integrate and focus on is unorthodox and uncommon to other people, then the element of surprise will always be in your favor.
The LOTUS LOCKDOWN is such a system because it offers users a form of control that no other guard can provide in both the Gi and NoGi. When a student starts using this unusual guard, the first reaction of most opponents is to spend the rest of the roll trying to get out from the leg connection and the upper body control. This nullifies his favorite game, and instead, the Lockdown user can focus on hitting sweeps and attacks. Most people will feel a sense of unease when caught in this position and spend all their energy simply trying to get out.
Of course, as the Lockdown user becomes more advanced, he will learn that the lockdown is not a static guard where you just stretch your legs but rather a dynamic guard that requires constant movement! If you practice the LOTUS LOCKDOWN for a couple of weeks and take your time to study the mechanics (which are super simple), you will learn how to do the Electric Chair Sweep and submit a lot of people using the Electric Chair Submission.
This is the Submission that even a White belt can catch a Blackbelt with, especially if he has never been Electric Chaired before! But watch out! Some more people will not tolerate this because it might hurt their ego, primarily if it occurs in front of other students. So watch out! :) So what if a White belt submits a Blackbelt or any other belt? Does it matter? Isn't this simply fantastic and proof that our game is continuously evolving? This is where Grapplinginstructionals wants to be, at the forefront of the unusual, supporting highly effective and sometimes unorthodox specialists using an outside-the-box approach to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, NoGi grappling, and MMA.
One such specialist is Magnus Hansson from 10th Planet Stockholm, Sweden who is an absolute Wizard when it comes to the World's most effective Half - Guard System: THE LOTUS LOCKDOWN! Few guards are as easy to learn and so instantly effective as the Lotus Lockdown and this guard is a MUST-have for anyone who is struggling with success both in sparring or in competition because a white belt with a full Lotus Lockdown and proper upper body control is EXTREMELY hard to handle even for a blackbelt!
The same goes for a seasoned competitor, who will be able to surprise his opponents in competition by using the Lotus Lockdown. IT'S NOT MAGIC! People just don't have a clue how to defend it.
Try it out and see for yourself and give it a GO! You will not regret it - and that's a promise!
