Understand the ins and outs of the turtle position and keep your transitions fresh with this all inclusive blueprint.
Defensive technique is just as important as being able to finish submissions. Without good defense, you won’t be in the position to finish submissions. Thiago Macedo has proved the effectiveness of his defensive technique through his long list of achievements; including his 1st place titles in the 2020 IBJJF Pan Championship, 2018 IBJJF American Nationals, and countless other top level tournament placements.
So much of Thiago’s technique is based on becoming familiar with attacking options from the turtle so you can anticipate your opponent's next move and be in a position to defend and counter. Use Thiago’s method of recognizing the bow and arrow choke early by using a fundamental shrimp paired with a pull on the choking arm to defend and start moving to a dominant position against the highest level opponents.
While studying his technique, it is easy to see the correlation between his teachings and his world championship wins. His flawless technique is practical and speaks for itself. After 120 professional grappling wins, Thiago definitely has his game down to a science.
This 4 part series covers basic turtle fundamentals, crab ride technique, standing technique, and advanced defensive technique. All 4 parts draw on elements on each other, forming a collective and strategic approach to the turtle position that is nothing short of a recipe for success. The work Thiago has put into his Jiu Jitsu since his training began at age 7 has developed into some of the most advanced and technical Jiu Jitsu in the world today.
