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.

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),
