Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
In part two of this two part series, you will learn more essential throws and takedowns. This follow up to part one, focuses on more intermediate and advanced techniques. Throws and takedowns are often the least practiced part of live training, so if you want to improve your game and get comfortable with the standup aspect of BJJ, be sure to check out this app.
Aparecido Faria, “Professor Bill”, is a 2X Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and 5X Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu National Champion. He began training in Brazil at the age of 7.

Good production quality, but...
Like all the mobile black belt apps, this one shows off a spectacular production value and a clean step-by-step explanation followed by a full speed demo. The takedown explanations themselves however are severely lacking in understanding of balance breaking for throwing. In virtually every example the falling partner is flat-footed as the Professor enters to turn and throw, leaving him wide open to be countered or picked up and dropped. The static nature (as opposed to moving) of most of the demos also ends up omitting many of the important elements of what it takes to throw a larger opponent/attacker flat on his back to take control.
I like most of the MBB apps; the chokes and open guard apps are on my phone right now. This one just seemed rushed.
Yet another well put together app
Definately a fantastic app. I had the opportunity to actually work with Professor Bill and Coach Mike while in CA. And I can honestly say that the classes convey exactly what is on video. Clear and consise no nonsense. Worth every penny, I cant wait till they actually further and expand the series.
Black Belt Mobile puts a first class BJJ seminar right in your pocket. HD instruction on the go. I love it, anytime I am waiting for something I pull out my iPhone and train my BJJ mind! Thank you coach Mike and Professor Bill for another great tool for my BJJ development. As always your work is top shelf!
