Bruno Malfacine Is The Greatest BJJ Competitor Ever To Step On The Mat & For The First Time Ever - The Only 10x Weight Class Black Belt World Champion In History - Wants To Show You How He Wrecks The Big Guys


Bruno has a great instructional series called How To Beat Bigger Guys available exclusively on In this series, Bruno shares all his amazing secrets that make him one of the deadliest competitors in the open weight division of all the prestigious international competitions. So what makes Bruno such an incredible “small guy” grappler? Let’s find out! Here are 3 powerful techniques from Bruno Malfacine that are guaranteed to wreck the bigger guys.

#1: Knee Push Sweep Butterfly Guard

The first part of this technique involves setting your butter fly hooks. Bruno prefers to put one knee on the floor and then set his hook with his other foot. When he gets his hook in he controls his training partner by putting his arm around his back and grabbing the belt, always keeping his head right next to his opponent’s head. This is a very important part of the technique. If your head is too high it will allow your opponent to push your over, so make sure you stay low, tight and connected to your opponent’s body. From here Bruno establishes his grip on his training partner’s leg and pulls his opponent forward. When his opponent sits back to counter the pulling Bruno uses the momentum to sweep his opponent.

#2: Inside Leg Trip From X Guard

Bruno Malfacine is a master of open guards, and has a killer X guard. When going for this inside leg trip, the first thing Bruno does is establish his grips. He starts out with cross collar control, gripping the gi pants on the same side as the collar. From here Bruno pulls himself into his opponent and sets his butter fly hook. At the same time he does this he also pulls his opponent diagonally while kicking with his legs effectively trapping his opponent’s leg. Bruno is now very connected to his training partner. His hips are up and his foot is controlling his opponent’s leg from behind. Now Bruno can safely adjust his positioning. The foot that was hooking the back of the thigh moves down to the back of the knee. Bruno’s other leg now goes in between his opponent’s base. Bruno then gets control of his training partner’s leg with an over hook around the ankle causing his opponent to widen his base. Now Bruno can pass his training partner’s leg to the other side of his head, using both his hands to keep the leg tight to his body. He uses the gi pant grip to push the leg over while swimming his other hand underneath and over to secure his grip. His arm comes all the way through with his hand behind his opponent’s knee. After securing a collar grip Bruno attacks his opponent’s arm, causing his opponent to pull back. When this happens Bruno can come up to his knees and finish the pass ending in side control.

#3: How To Avoid Getting Smashed by The Bigger Guys

If you are a smaller guy who gets smashed often by bigger guys then Bruno Malfacine is a great competitor to study. In the video above, Bruno shares some great advice on how to deal with this.
