    Just started BJJ about a month ago. I dont have any kind of other martial arts or wrestling base so i find that my mobility on the mat is...well...terrible. For example, when i try bridge to shrimp to get out from under side mount, i'm not quick enough after the bridge to get a good shrimp in...if that makes sense.

    Anywho, can anyone point me to some good hip mobility/strength drills i can do at home? A friend i'm taking the class with found this set of drills last night on youtube and i figured i would start there.

    Thanks!

    It's just something you develop with mat time.

    I wouldn't worry about doing stuff at home, it will come during class.

    Best thing is just to work on it when rolling.

    What is the snake? I'm assuming bump is the same thing as a bridge right?

    Thanks for the replies guys, having a blast so far so sticking with it aint no thang.

    snake is walking backward with your shoulders and pushing with your feet. bump is an explosive bridge. learn to shrimp out before your hips hit the ground.

    do a lot of rolling around on the ground and getting familiar with the concept of ground movement. I like to say "become friends with the ground".

    After almost every single session, I can think of a position in which I was weak, or didn't have the tool that I needed
    15 minutes of being on YouTube later, and I know what to do next time that situation arises

    Definitely, its just that i only have class twice a week and while i usually spend a extra half hour after class when they have open mat until the next class starts, that still leaves 5 days i could be doing something at home. :)
