Henry Akins, “Invisible Jiu-Jitsu” Connection: Jiu-Jitsu Magazine, Issue #28

His nickname is “The Jiu-Jitsu Super Computer” because his high level of understanding and attention to detail about the gentle art. These great qualities along with his conceptual approach and philosophical ideals truly and sincerely make him much more than that. In issue #19 he blew our minds by entertaining our brain matter with what would make anyone question everything they know, or at least what you thought you knew about jiu-jitsu. It was almost as if being asked whether you wanted to take the red or blue pill. Keep going about your existence or discover the truth? The red pill was chosen, there was no smoke or mirrors and though we couldn’t see it our Lead Editor/Publisher, surely felt the power of “Invisible Jiu-Jitsu” that day courtesy of one of Rickson Gracie’s most prestigious students and the third American to ever be awarded a black belt. So when the opportunity to meet with Henry Akins of Dynamix MMA (https://www.http://dynamixmartialarts…) was available we were there!

In this video and it’s partner ( Henry explained and provided an amazing presentation on knowing when to connect, as well as disconnect from your opponent and why it is so important. To the untrained eye it’s impossible to see, but once broken down and then shown the thought of , “For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. It’s energy surrounds us and binds us.”, came to mind. More than “The Jiu-Jitsu Super Computer”, Henry may be jiu-jitsu’s version of Yoda. If you are ever in the Los Angeles area and ever have the chance to train with Henry we highly recommend it!
