Guard Passing Simplified, Part One
Since Brazilian Jiu Jitsu first appeared on the scenes here in the U.S. in the late 1980's, what has separated it from the other grappling arts is a position called, "The Guard." The guard has frustrated practitioners from all of the various other grappling arts (Judo, Wrestling, Sambo, etc...) as well as many practitioners of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
The modus operandi for training within the culture of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been (a) the learning of technique followed by (b) a lengthy period of sparring. And while that was enough for the average student for many years, it seemed to lack "something." Sensing the need for more, students and instructors began combining the concepts of drills and combinations to their training. That is as far as Jiu Jitsu has progressed in recent years.
This course will be a mix of PDFs, audio and video files. It will lay a foundation as far as theory, technique and simple training methods are concerned. And, in part two of this series, I will go much farther into the concepts of training - one that will go WAY BEYOND technique.

This course will cost:
Some have commented, "$97 is a lot to pay for one single course." I have responded by asking the following questions:
• How much does one month of instruction at your academy cost? $80? $100? $120? $150? $200?
• For the $80 to $200 you pay each month, how often do you get to review ALL of the important details you were taught in one group class - let alone the entire month?
• Do you now see the value in paying a one-time fee for lifetime access to great content - which is accessible on your laptop, tablet, Android, iPhone or Windows phone daily?
Let me give you an example of how one student uses my instructionals:
I have one student who listens to the videos from my courses on his phone each morning on the 45 minute drive to work. He says it helps him to remember many of the important points of the instructionals, especially in his sparring matches!
Also, whenever I update the course, you get those updates for free - even more value for you!
My goals for this course are as follows:
1. Teach you an easy to remember concept passing the guard that doesn’t rely having to learn and memorize 100+ techniques.
2. Teach you many of the do’s and dont’s of guard passing - things I wish my instructors had either taught or emphasized to me.
3. Teach you a structured training method - one that will last you for decades.
Does this sound like a plan? Do you have questions or comments? If so, email me at the address listed below.
I hope to see you on the inside (because this is definitely a game changing instructional),
