The shrimping in the fight, learn to do the “shrimp” if you want to get out of many situations while you struggle, this should not be a difficult thing to understand.

Today I want to talk to you about a technique that is often underestimated when you have to train a lot because it allows you to get out of often difficult situations.

This technique will allow you many times to save your ass!!

You know what your weaknesses are, so this should be a good reason to train and figure out where you need to work harder.

You can train it with a training partner or even in just training with a support wall.

Remember to keep one thing in mind, that your needs and knowledge will change based on:

  • against those you work out against,
  • how many times are you in a real competition and
  • how often do you work out.

There is a technique that every BJJ practitioner (but in general wrestling) actually has to practice a lot, because this exercise is one of the most important and central to perform when practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The importance of making and knowing the SHRIMPING.

You have to learn how to make the “shrimp”, the name comes from the position you take when you perform this technique.

This technique is often used when a person defends himself from any position in which you are below, therefore in a lower or disadvantaged position.

When you’re in the lower position you have to switch immediately and explosively to the survival position, which is shrimping.

This technique you need to go out, it is part of the BJJ Escapes.

From time to time during training and competitions the BJJ professionals are in this position but do not use this technique to pull themselves out and gain space.

Why learn to do shrimping?

Because many practice spending all their time on the top side or practicing techniques on offense and have never learned to fight from below and defend on the exit.

It is very important that you train by forcing yourself not to attack just to train the defense from attacks and exits, this approach requires a very important effort but makes you greatly better by developing an absolutely active and intuitive perception about your opponent’s preparation and type of attack.

It’s as if it greatly increases your ability to anticipate your opponent’s attacks.

When you fight from the bottom that’s usually harder a lot of people find it hard to get out and get back into a position of advantage because they don’t do much of this type of defense-focused training and worst they struggle because they haven’t practiced shrimping enough.

Don’t make this mistake!

These workouts are called conditioned sparring and are focused on working on certain areas that you find little to deal with for several reasons, such as being strong in your gym and being a few times at a disadvantage.

To do this you have to do a targeted job to work also on areas where you usually do not find yourself but that outside your gym or during competitions where you have more prepared and competitive opponents you can find yourself.

Escapes and defense in the fight

One thing you need to do is train the exits (escape),the (notto be confused with escapes), etc. because they will allow you to get out and save yourself from Insured tapouts but I’ll still talk about it in depth in future articles because I care a lot about the fact that you improve this ability.

To do a good workout you must be able to apply the exits or escapes or reversals during a non-cooperating fighting condition where your training partner or opponent absolutely does not want you to get out of that situation.

This is important because that’s the real test to see if you understand how it works.
