Andreas had the chance to travel around Miami and experience some of the local Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academies. In this video, Andreas visits the the MMA Masters gym and the Freddy Trillo Academy where he trains with Ruben Alvarez. You'll also get to watch in awe as Andreas experiences the wonders of the everglades and manages to charm the wildlife with his German demeanor.
During his time in Miami, Florida, Andreas Resch visited the Freddy Trillo academy on several occasions to train some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Freddy is a black belt under Tom Deblass who owns an outstanding academy called the Trillo Academy. If you're ever in Miami, check it out!
Freddy shows a great setup for the rear-naked choke in this video. Use it to submit Andreas if you ever meet him.
Andreas also choked out an alligator but that's not a big deal... he got lucky.
See pt. 5 in Andreas' journey around Miami to train with the local BJJ teams. In this exclusive footage, Andreas visits the beautiful Atos Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Miami to learn from Professor Leo D'avila.
Prof. D'avila was kind enough to show one of his favorite NoGi entries into the X-Guard. Check out this technique and let us know what you think! Stay tuned for some more Vlogage
Welcome to the next installment of Andreas' journey to Miami for some sunshine, Aligators, and Jiu-Jitsu training. In this video, watch as Andreas does some BJJ, films a very tired Aligator, and learns a new sweep from the half-guard position.
Andreas trained with Gabriel Pinto who was kind enough to share a detailed breakdown of one of his favorite sweeps from the half guard position. The half guard is a position that provides numerous options for sweeps and submissions. Gabriel shows how to use this position to setup a banana split submission or a guard pass. Enjoy!
Andreas is continuing his trek around Miami to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with local teams. Living in Western Germany, Andreas never gets to experience many beaches. In this footage, watch in awe as Andreas visits a beach and soaks in the Vitamin D that his skin so badly needs. Additionally, enjoy Andreas shopping in Miami, driving around in a car, practicing Spanish, and training BJJ at Renzo Gracie Weston.
We'd like to thank all the teams that have hosted Andreas as he journeys around Miami. The brotherhood and hospitality that comes along with BJJ is one of the best aspects of the sport. If anyone is travelling in Germany, shoot us a message and let's train :)
Andreas is continuing his BJJ filled fun in the sun Miami adventure. With each passing day, Andreas reconsiders the purpose of his life in Germany and whether or not it'd be a good idea to remain in the sun soaked lands of Florida.
In this exclusive footage, Andreas appears in a Gi, a very rare sight indeed. Unfortunately, many of Andreas gravity defying and awe inspiring abilities are nullified by the Gi's rough and unfamiliar fabric.
In this first installment of the Mat-Tricks Vlog, Andreas is travelling to Miami to stay with his friend Anthony and train some BJJ at Renzo Gracie Weston... and other places too :)
Andreas is a humble German soul who lives in the wild colds of Homburg. Hopefully, the shift to a warmer climate will do some good for his aging bones. In this video, Andreas geeks out over how nice Miami looks, sees some interesting birds, walks on a beach, and ends up having a significantly sweaty time at practice. Enjoy! Stay tuned for Part 2 (and also 3, 4, 5... you get the idea).
