Ronda Rousey and the arm lock: a powerful love story.
The arm lock has already made a difference to countless fighters. Perhaps the most famous of them was Ronda Rousey. Ronda was an impressive fighter for many reasons. For being the first female MMA fighter to ever conquer the mainstream media. For finishing the majority of her fights in the first round. But the most impressive fact is that Ronda won most fights with a relatively simple technique: the arm lock.
More than a BJJ classic: an end to the fights. Have you ever dreamed about going to a fight knowing the exact move that could give you the victory? It must be an incredible sense of security. Now, look the other way. Have you thought about going to a fight knowing exactly what technique would bring your defeat? This should make you feel not too confident. This is what Ronda’s opponents probably felt many times.
Ronda was a high-level judo competitor. A daughter of the first American woman to become world champion in the sport, Ronda had an unorthodox training at home. She said that sometimes her mother would wake her up in the morning with an arm lock. This may have shown the importance of always being ready. And transferring this confidence to MMA, after a successful career as a Judo medalist in the Olympics, was easy.
From Kodokan Judo to the revolutionary Jiu-Jitsu of Helio Gracie, the arm lock appears in many martial arts, simply because knowing it is a matter of survival in fights. This has everything to do with its many possibilities of use. Did you fall on top of the opponent? It’s an excellent way to finish him. Are you down, about to get a lot of punches? The arm lock can also save you in this situation. A chance to turn certain defeat into victory, and cast a bait so that the adversary, in a simple mistake, put everything to waste.
And we got good news: this technique is available not only for champions, you can also learn it from our new arm lock video tutorial. One of the best ways to learn the move, cause you can actually see a fighter doing, step by step, this Brazillian Jiu-jitsu basic move.

It’s time to start letting BJJ improve your life.
Most people think that Martial Arts, including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, are about self defense. That´s not totally wrong, but there´s much more in it. The “way of the warrior”, the lifestyle of a dedicated martial artist, goes way beyond the dojo. It’s much more than a color in the belt. BJJ can change and improve your life in so many ways, that you just can´t imagine right now. But we’ll help you realize it.
Here’s some mighty reasons to start. After reading, come and see for yourself the power of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in El Club de la Lucha Barcelona.
Unique Experience – both individual and social
BJJ is an individualized experience. Playing well as a member of a group is a very important part of being a fully developed person. Like every good Martial Art, Jiu Jitsu offers an honest, unique and personal experience. You come in, not just to improve your ability and keep your ego in check, but to enjoy your process and path, savoring every step of it.
Mental Improvement – Develop focus and skills
Learning a technique requires as much mental activity as it does physical. In order to learn a technique you must practice it over and over. You study the technique just like you would a subject for school, and then learn to apply it. Learning to apply the technique can be the most challenging part. In order to improve you must keep attempting the technique over and over again, and that makes you a better person.
Physical Workout – Say goodbye to calories
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training is intense. Warmups usually begin with a brutal regiment that rivals anything you might do as a separate exercise. After the warm out, people usually do heavy drills. Then, it’s free sparring(when you are already tired), where after a couple of rounds you’re so exhausted that you can’t even move an inch. The result after every class? An excellent shape and a good feeling.
A Great History – Bjj is a respected Martial Art
You will learn to fight a very respected Martial Art. The origins are ancient, jujutsu was originally used by samurai warriors. Much later Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was born, when Hélio Gracie and his clan, improved it and tested in many fights and tournaments all over the world.
Self Defense – It’s not about using it
Getting stronger, more prepared and self confident is great. But the best part is that you probably won’t use it most of the times. But isn´t important, for a man and even more…for a woman, to know that you can protect yourself in certain situations? It improves your self esteem, confidence and personality.
These are just some of the many reasons for you to try BJJ and become a champion of determination and well-being. For all that, you deserve a place to practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Barcelona that worth your time.
