The Granby

The Granby from wrestling is a widely neglected and miss-understood technique. When understood and performed correctly the Granby has awesome application to Wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

Unfortunately most of the coaching on this technique and most of the clips you will find on the internet demonstrating the Granby are incorrect. Below I have collected some of my favorite clips.

I also highly recommend Keith Lawernce's Granby System. His DVD set is awesome he breaks the technique down better than anyone I've seen to date and has a very unique approach to this move. You can view his site here

Few people seem to also realize this technique can be applied while standing as well.

There is a very simple defense to the Granby how ever you have to know the Granby is coming and time your opponent correctly. Ask me about it sometime at our Studio and I'll go over it.
