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!
