What Will You Learn?

The French Gripping Formula looks to give you an easy-to-follow system of gripping that allows you to unlock your full potential as a Judo athlete. Loic Pietri is a former Judo World Champion in the -89 kg category. He credits his gripping system for his success at the highest levels of competition.

If you have ever felt like you cannot establish effective grips on an opponent you aren’t alone. Grips and grip fighting are often overlooked by many beginners because the focus shifts solely to tactical throws. The reality is that you will have a very hard time implementing high level throws if you cannot win the grip exchange. The French Gripping Formula goes in-depth on how to initiate and win the grip fighting sequence. 

By consistently out gripping your opponents you will have a much higher success rate on the mat. Neutral gripping, where neither practitioner has advantageous grips, oftentimes comes down to who is the better athlete or who is stronger. By using Loic’s systematic gripping approach you can start to earn that tactical advantage over opponents who may even have more experience than you!

Do you hate facing off against someone with the opposite lead hand/foot like you? You are not alone here either! The French Gripping Formula dives in on establishing offense against an opposite stance opponent. On top of generating offense that builds you a platform to launch attacks, you will learn how to defeat your opponent’s grips as well!

To wrap things up in this hard-hitting instructional, Loic covers a wide range of alternative attacks off of unusual grips. These grips catch the opponent off guard because they aren’t your typical grips. From these unique setups Loic is able to execute classic techniques like Tai Otoshi, Seoi Nage, Osoto Gari, and MORE!
