Jiu Jitsu Defense to the Truck Position

Getting stuck in the truck position can be very frustrating, which is why Jamarr asked Jiu Jitsu Coach Ryan Fortin what to do when his opponent sets it up on him. Check out this Tip of the Week to learn the answer.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Jamarr Coleman:
Hey, what’s up everybody? This is Jamarr, the Sales Director here at The Arena. And I’m here with the Rattlesnake. Ryan Fortin, and I got a question for you.

Coach Ryan Fortin:
Yes sir.

Jamarr Coleman:
I’m really struggling. Hey, I’ve been getting caught in a truck and I’m just wondering how the hell do I get out of the truck? What works for you?

Coach Ryan Fortin:
All right, I’ll show you. Put me in the truck and I’ll go from there.

Jamarr Coleman:
Sounds good.

Coach Ryan Fortin:
All right, so pretty common entry, right? Three quarter-mile entry. Guy gets your back, ties it up. Rolls. Oh no, I’m stuck in the truck. Okay, so again, watching out for attacks. He’s got this calf slice here. He can just stretch my legs out. Exactly. That’s the banana split. So I’m going to keep him distracted. In this, now I need to get my weight to the other side. So I’m going to shoot my legs over, get to the other side. Start to lean back to jam him up top. Right? See how you can’t really move. Take my outside leg and block. Free my leg. Now I got the pass. Now you won’t get stuck in a truck no more man.

Jamarr Coleman:
Definitely. Good stuff. And there you have it. Got the Rattlesnake. This is Jamar, and this is The Arena. We out.

Coach Ryan Fortin:
Every time. Every time it gets harder.

Jamarr Coleman:
Yes. Good. For all the times you choked the shit out of me, all them other times.
