Course description

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. There will also be a couple of discussion forums where I will answer students' questions. And, there will be a couple of surveys to help improve this course as time progresses.

This course 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.

For an idea of what will be taught in this course, take a look at the chapter names below.

I look forward to seeing you on the inside!

Thank you for your time,

Roy Harris

As a lover of details, definitly i love it!

Excellent instructional

by marcelo corpuz
This was a great instructional that, while giving some technique, imparts upon the student perhaps more valuable information on how to train the techniques. The delivery platform is novel, and works well on both a laptop/desktop and a mobile device. I can't wait for Part Two!

Every white belt should start here.

by Markus Laumann
I'm still new enough to BJJ that getting caught in someone's guard feels like wandering through a minefield. This fundamentally sound approach to posture and passing gives me a safer path to follow. I'm in a better position now to mitigate dangers proactively instead of stumbling into my next tap.

Mr. Harris does it again!

by Brian Jennings
I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Mr. Harris' new on-line training website, and his first instructional did not disappoint! Mr. Harris takes arguably one of the most difficult skill sets in BJJ and demonstrates not only technique, but training methods. The site is very easy to navigate, and the video production quality is excellent. I'm looking forward to all the future Harris Academy releases. Who knows, I may even find interest in golf! :)
