Develop Explosive Strength For BJJ With The Quad Hop

The "Quad Hop" and its many components have long been a staple bodyweight movement taught at Agatsu courses. This explosive calisthenics exercise is ideal for jiujitsu players looking to improve their conditioning and movement capability on the ground. 

The foundation movement is a simple plyometric pushup that is ramped up in stage two with the addition of a turning locomotive pattern followed by traveling forward and backward in stage three. In stage four we begin to combine all the previous stages along with other movements to create routines that will help improve your strength and conditioning for BJJ. 

**The following video was filmed at an Agatsu Indian Club Instructor Certification in Hong Kong. Although the video quality isn't as high as we would like it is an excellent tutorial on the basics components of this exercise and the perfect place to start your Quad Hop training.**
