Here is this week’s challenge for you all. It is called a standing base. You begin with your back on the ground. Maintain one hand in front of you as a guard. Use your other hand and your legs as a tripod to stand up. This is a very similar movement to an exercise called a Turkish Getup (right).
This week’s challenge requires you to get up 100 times. Remember you must complete at least 6 challenges to qualify for the physical test in March.
You can also see an excellent description and demonstration by BJJ instructor Ritchie Yip below.
Don’t forget to stretch for at least 10 minutes every day.
