Combined jiu jitsu & rugby training

There is a lively rugby scene here in Cascais and our team invited the rugby guys to do a joint training session every Wednesday. The rugby guys get to train slightly different takedown & takedown defense tactics and we get some explosivity drills and physical training. For me, it has been especially fun to spar with rugby guys becayse it teaches you "Gracie style" self defense. You probably have better technique but you have to defend against athletic guys who never quit.

Last session we did some bjj + rubgy style excercises where you have for example
  • Run, dribble and break through a wall of two guys
  • Go wall against wall to push the guys to the other side (on video)

  • "fighting horse" championship where you sit on another guys shoulder and fight fight other pairs (on video)
