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.

Collar Drag from the Butterfly Guard Position

Join Professors Guy and Rob as they demonstrate another weekly How To. This weeks video is a Collar Drag from the Butterfly Guard (when your partner stands up).

Hand on Collar while in Butterfly Guard-Partner Standing up

Hand on Collar while in Butterfly Guard-Partner Standing up

Alright, guys, on this video we are going to look at another Butterfly Guard technique. In this one, our partner is actually going to stand up instead of staying on both knees. So we’re starting back in the butterfly guard. He’s grabbing both pants and he decides to stand up.

Now, of course, the longer we stay here the more likely he’s going to run around and do a Toreando type pass or something of that nature. So, I want to have a hand on the collar and post my opposite hand on the mat. I’m going to bring my foot to the outside of his leg.

How partner typically lands

And I’m just going to do a big shrimp motion and I’m going to drag him to the floor. A lot of times both hands typically hit the mat, most guys don’t concede the position. Then I’m going to come up to this position. Now, depending on his reaction, if he stays here (hands and knees on mat) I may just turn him over and get to the top position, just depending on what he does. When you do this really fast and your partner doesn’t have time to base, some guys, will turn and concede the position. So when I step the leg to the outside, I drag really hard it is not uncommon for him to concede the position because he falls to the bottom. Just from a momentum stand point. Alright, Guys, one more time. In Butterfly Guard-partner stands up, I make sure I have a hand on the collar. You need the hand on the collar. So instead of the arm drag, here

Coming up to Attack

Coming up to Attack

it’s going to be the collar drag. My foot goes to the outside, hand on the mat. That’s very important, it helps you get out quick, drag him to the floor. If he doesn’t concede the position, you can come up to attack or bring the leg out, tap knee and go to the side control position.

Alright, guys? So that is the Collar Drag from the Butterfly Guard Position when your partner stands up. It’s really effective, I really like this technique.
