Intro to Mechanics:
An audio course from BJJ Mental Models

Hi there! Steve Kwan here, from BJJ Mental Models. I have a question for you...

Does learning BJJ make your brain feel like this? 👉 🤯

Because when I started Jiu-Jitsu, it sure did for me!

For most of us, learning Jiu-Jitsu means being bombarded with techniques and details, then forgetting 99% of what we were taught. That's not a productive way to learn...and that's where mental models can help us.

If you're familiar with BJJ Mental Models, then you already know how our framework helps clarify the landscape of Jiu-Jitsu. But if you're new to our system, then our Intro to Mechanics series is the best place to start!

This course is THE FASTEST way to get familiar with BJJ Mental Models.

Our Intro to Mechanics series is a brief audio course that quickly gets you up to speed on key mental models for Jiu-Jitsu. It's composed of nine brief episodes that you can quickly come back to as a reference. And, of course, if you're looking for a deeper dive, that's what our podcast is for!

Here are the course contents:

  1. Alignment & Core Mechanics
  2. Anatomic Hierarchy & Types of Guard
  3. Force Vectors & Leading Edges
  4. Kinetic Chains & Elbow-Knee Connection
  5. Inside Channel Control & Head Position 
  6. Surface Area & Critical Control Points
  7. Putting It All Together
  8. Real-World Examples
  9. Real-World Examples, cont.
