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.

Butterfly to Single Leg X Technical Stand Up Sweep

Alright, guys, we’re back and we are looking at a counter movement that your partner does when you attempt to go for that arm drag from the butterfly guard position.

He’s going to post a leg up to the same side that you’re trying to take the back.

Partner Posts Leg Out

Partner Posts Leg Out

So we go with that same two on one grip, I remove the hook, I drag him but your partner steps forward with that same side leg. It makes it a lot more difficult to get to the back. So what we’re going to do is go into a single leg x position. I’m going to make sure that my leg (if it isn’t already) back underneath his leg.

                                                                                                             

Grab Partners Ankle

We’re going to grab his ankle (the one that he’s posted up on). Keeping your hand on his ankle, we’re going to shrimp underneath him. That foot is going to go to his hip and we’re going to keep our knees pinched tight. So we’re in the single leg x position. A lot of guys like to put their foot to the mat or even better you can put a butterfly hook just up under the thigh.

We’re going to kick him away to be able to come up to this position. But before we do that we’re going to circle under.

The use of the butterfly hook is very important to help push the weight off. As I push him off, now I come up on the palm of my hand, to technical stand up.

Technical Stand Up

You can drive into him or you can pull him up underneath you. Which is even better, right? Because sometimes when you push into the guy he may topple over or he may run out of the ring, right?

So that is the counter when you try to do the arm drag from the butterfly guard and your partner posts, we go to a single leg x position and go for the technical stand up. If you enjoy the videos be sure to subscribe to YouTube, give us a thumbs up. Thanks again.
