Our twin girls have been coming to PAMA for a little over 2 years and still look forward to coming to class. Family friendly, locally-owned and operated. Instructor/owners are personable, knowledgeable and committed to providing quality instruction. Assistant instructors are dedicated and provide excellent support. I would highly recommend PAMA to parents who wish to pursue martial arts training for their children.

Pendergrass Academy is by far one of the best things that has happened to my children and I am now a student of PAMA you need to come give it a try it's a decision I promise you won't regret. The Academy is not just a place to study but a family. The staff is the best in the Business.

This is a great school. My oldest son has gained so much confidence in the 5 years he been coming here. My youngest has been enrolled for a few months and is having as much fun as his older brother. I became tired of watching them have all the fun so I joined too. Great kids program, great adult program and awesome instructors.

My husband and I both train here. My husband has trained here for years. I started with Muay Thai this past year and have just started jiu jitsu. All the teachers and staff here are great and the students are very welcoming. I could not say enough nice things about Pendergrass! Highly recommend!!!

Rob hosted a Beginning Jiu Jitsu class for me and 11 of my friends. He gave a great overview of jiu jitsu and we all had a blast on the mat. He was very nice, humble, and well paced though out the training. He even stayed later since we started a little late because of late arrivals. The facility is nice and it is great that they offer Muay Thai also. I think I am going to sign up and also sign up my kids. Thank you Rob for an awesome birthday. It was exactly what I wanted.

This is a wonderful program. All three of our sons have been a part of Pendergrass Academy for many years. It has taught them so much more than martial arts. We are grateful to be a part of this fantastic family business.

5 of the Most Practical Submissions from Side Control

These are 5 of the most practical submissions from Side Control. These submissions are used quite a bit and some of them pair really well together.

Wrist Lock Submission

Wrist Lock

#1: Basic Wrist Lock: It’s very common for your partner to frame up and have one hand in the neck typically. So we’re going to take our chin and put it right on the wrist. As we press our chin in, you’re starting to flex his wrist. Then we’re going to open the elbow. I actually want his elbow on the ground. Our other hand comes in and reinforces it, we drop our right shoulder and we finish the wrist lock.

Lapel Choke Submission

Lapel Choke

#2: the sneaky – Lapel Choke: We’re going to be using our own lapel. It’s called the lapel choke. If it’s not already loose and out, we’ll pull it out. Obviously, we don’t want to make him aware of it. We’re going to grab the tip of the lapel, palm away. We’re going to feed the arm under his head like we’re holding side control. Then we’re going to loop the elbow as we continue to hold the tip of the lapel. Finally, it’s similar to a bread cutter, where we just force our elbow to the mat and get the tap.

Americana Submission

Americana

#3: Basic Americana: We’re going to pin down his wrist to the mat with our right hand. Then with our left hand we’ll go up under his arm gripping our own wrist. Drop our hip, lift his arm while bringing his elbow to his hip for the tap.

 

Kimura Submission

Kimura

#4: Kimura: When he defends the Americana and he rotates the hand down we’re going to switch. My right arm goes under his shoulder. I like to use my chin to keep tension on the arm. And we pull our left arm out, grab the wrist, pass it off. Now from here you could switch your hips and throw the leg over. Or we’re going to step, rotate him sideways, square him up and finish the Kimura.

Basic Armbar Submission

Basic Armbar

#5: Basic Armbar: If he grabs his belt or grabs his gi, we’ll pull the hand out grab his knee. Sit and turn to finish the basic Armbar from side control.

 

 

That is 5 really practical submissions you should practice on a daily basis and get good at them because these are the bread and butters that will make a difference between winning and losing.
