Southern Impact will be bringing Roli Delgado down for a gi and no gi leg lock seminar. Leg locks are attacks targeting the knees and mainly the ankles of an opponent. Leg locks are generally the most efficient way to attack an opponent since many of the ligaments in the knee or the ankle, do not scale with size. This enables a much smaller person to leverage on weak points in an opponent’s body and submit them.
Roli Delagado is a 2nd degree Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt with GFTeam (Grappling Fight Team) out of Westside MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). He began cross training in other grappling arts just after receiving his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Delagado is a level 5 in Gokor Chivichyan’s Hayastan System. Additionally, Delagado had the pleasure of training with Billy Robinson for 5 years at Westside MMA. He is known as a specialist on applying Catch Wrestling and Sambo style finishing moves in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with instructional APPs for both Apple and Android products called Legal Leg Locks for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
In MMA, Delagado has had some great opportunities such as being a contestant on Season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter, winning a fight in the UFC and Bellator. As an MMA fighter, Delagado has amassed an 11-6-1 record. Since 2011, Delagado has focused primarily on grappling competition, winning many smaller tournaments and medaling in three Black Belt International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation events. He competed in and won a super fight in the Respect Professional Grappling show earlier this year and he recently won the US Trials for Combat Wrestling and placed 2nd at the championship in Bulgaria.
The seminar is September 26th from 1-3:30 PM will be held at Southern Impact Martial Arts at 1105 11th Street in Mena. For more information, contact Cody with any questions at 479-234-9234.
