Inversions-101 Getting started with going upside-down in Jiu-Jitsu

The word inversion means, “a reversal in order.”  So in the case of BJJ it means you are upside down relative to your partners body.  “Why would you ever want to do this?  Someone could just stomp on your head if you did this on the streets!”  That’s a different reality with a different set of rules and tools.  Inverting is more for sport and for fun.  It’s also a great way to develop flexibility and offers you a different set of tools for day-to-day grappling.  I also like inverting because it makes the guard very difficult to pass and creates a whole new set of obstacles for your partner to overcome.   Enjoy this micro-seminar on inversions and let me know how you’re progressing.  As always, happy training ninjas!
