BJJ Techniques: Back Takes from Stack Passing the Guard

Grappling Mastery: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & MMA Academy

Here are two Leg Reaping or “Scorpion” style back takes when passing the guard.  Most times when you are in the guard your focus is to pass or attack footlocks.  The Scorpion Leg Reap and Rolling Scorpion are two unorthodox back takes that give you an alternative to passing the guard.  You can skip the pass and go directly for the back and the submissions that it yields!  These are advanced techniques and require significant drilling to master the movements.  These back takes are a part of a much larger game and not for everyone.  Give them a try and let us know what you think.

We are happy to announce that Grappling Mastery introduced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to Lake County Florida just over 2 years ago.  We’ve now been teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Tavares, Florida and the Lake County area for at least two years now and are growing tremendously in size and skill!  After helping run a Gracie Barra in Orlando for 7 years, Brian Ruscio moved to Leesburg and started teaching private lessons in his garage for free!  As word spread he was given the opportunity to teach his passion in an actual dojo.  Now, two years later, Grappling Mastery has it’s own location, Professor Ruscio has earned his first degree and we’re bursting at the seams!  Things are definitely looking up for our team this year and more big things are on the horizon.

We welcome everyone to join us in celebrating this milestone!

We plan to be celebrating at Grappling Mastery on December 12, at 10 am.  Invite your Family and Friends, all are welcome.  We will be doing a team picture at 11am so bring your GIs!  The gym will also be open so you roll and we will also have a bounce house and cake for the kids!

You can RSVP Here

Afterwards, you can Watch UFC 194 Aldo vs. McGregor with the Grappling Mastery team!
