    Don't teach him any chokes or subs. Just teach him basic sweeps and positioning. If he is a soccer player, he should have good cardio.

    teach him all the basic postions first
    then progress to escapes and sweeps
    responsibility with what he learns is a key factor.


    you will get a lot of different opinions on the submissions.
    i see kids in tournaments doing subs so.....

    Don't live vicariously through your brother.

    Sending him to a judo class might be better idea if you insist

    yeah.i`ve been learning him some basic positions,you know mount etc, just by rolling with him a lil bit,but i was looking for some drills,

    (my english sucks) you know that drill where you roll over the side of you`re neck? dont really know the name,but this still seems al lill bit,i dont know,a lill bit too dangerous maybe, the thing is,he doesn`t want to go to judo class,he was there for like 2 years,and always got in trouble with some kids there,so that`s thing.

    He's 12 I'd say he's adult enough (imo) to learn submissions. In time though.

    For me the ground game and teaching it seemed to come naturally, just start with simple effective basic technique, teach it detailed as possible. Explain the move while doing it on him (or if you have a training partner who can help you show the flow drill).

    Say pass the guard explaining while whichever pass method you are best at in detail. Get to side control have him do the bridge and shrimp back into guard technique, then have him scissor sweep, as you are swept be sure to block the knee as he comes up (will keep you from getting mounted, and put him in side control) then you reclaim guard by bridging and shrimping, have him pass, reclaim guard by bridging up and shrimping again then scissor sweep, have him block the knee putting you in side control. Then just simply continue running through this same drill several times in a good flow 'til it comes natural. Once both of you can do this easily, at a set pace, without stopping to figure things out you can progress to adding things in such as submissions.

    I like to do this, explaining every detail in depth for ATLEAST 30mins when teaching basics. Explain passing the guard, how you do it, every little detail, every little detail of side control and getting your weight on the person good, every detail of the sidecontrol escape, ect.. If you are familiar with the three common different levels, as I like to call them, of side control once he has the initial flow drill down you can show him other types of side control and the escapes. Once you have instructing the first flow drill down pact (I find it helps to take notes as I show basics sometimes) you might find it easy to develop your own flow drills with the basics or do some of the others people have posted here. Making variations, ect..


    The one I posted has just always been one of my favorites, I find it very effective in making a person very good at reclaiming guard and keeping a person from passing. Keep in mine when I type I'm generally speaking no-gi, however it works the same with the gi.

    If some things were hard to understand I apologize, in something of a hurry.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

    i agree to teach him positioning and sweeps before submissions.. just make sure he does everything with PERFECT technique. don't want him to develop bad habits

    your little brother is probably gonna beat up a lot of people by the time he's your age btw

    Make sure this is what he wants to do. My little bro has great hands, he just has zero desire to be a bad ass. and that's fine, this stuff isn't for everybody
