Some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academies have issues with the takedown game as they aren’t experienced wrestlers. Takedowns have always been a strength of Professor Jubera’s game. Not only does Matt have a background in wrestling and a judo black belt but Professor Jubera continues to seek out the best training partners in the state like Division 1 NCAA champion Dave Zabriskie.
The other big component of No-Gi is the leglock game. Professor Jubera was lucky enough to start his Judo training with World Cup Sambo Champion Jessey Bouchard. Jessey and others inspired Matt to never look down upon the leglock game. As such our academy allows heel hooks and other leglocks in no-gi training at blue belt and above.
