My name is Stephan Kesting. I'm a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt and a submission wrestling instructor. I operate some very popular grappling websites, including Grapplearts.com and BeginningBJJ.com. With these sites I help thousands of people just like you quickly improve their grappling skills. You might also know me from my instructional grappling DVDs, or the 20+ articles I've published in magazines like Black Belt, TapOut, Ultimate MMA and Grappling. I've got an entire line of instructional DVDs, but my flagship instructional product is The Grappling Concepts Course. This is my very best, most complete, most detailed information on grappling. Plus I'll throw in five DVDs as a special bonus, including the Advanced Techniques and Tactics Series, which aren't available any other way.
In 1925 Colonel P. H. Fawcett embarked on a journey into a dangerous and largely unexplored region of Brazil in search of a fabled lost city and was never seen again. Journalist Peter Fleming's interest in Fawcett's disappearance led him to answer an advertisement to join an expedition to explore the rivers of Brazil with the aim of ascertaining the explorer's fate. Though Colonel Fawcett's disappearance remains a mystery to this day, Peter Fleming's wild adventure in the jungles of Brazil is recognized as one of the 20th century's best-loved travel classics.
Grappling in any "live" situation is really last resort stuff. The priority - if avoidance and escape is not an option - is pre-emptive action via ballistic impact. If you have ended up on the ground, then a mistake has been made and you will have to make the best out of a bad situation - and quickly. The priority is to hurt your combative subject and get back to your feet as soons as you can.
