In his "Half Domination" series, Tom DeBlass leaves no doubt that the half guard is no longer just a defensive position. It is a position that he has worked to perfect within his game since his days as a blue belt under famed competitor and UFC veteran Ricardo Almeida. When you're training partners include Professor Almeida, the great Renzo and Ryan Gracie, and all of the other monsters that pass through the doors of the Renzo Gracie affiliation, you've got to develop some strong positions and half guard was what the blue belt DeBlass gravitated to and eventually turned from a defensive position into a full blown offensive game plan.
You will learn all about Tom's use of frames, as well as how to utilize and also defeat a powerful knee shield. You will learn where you should keep your head in relation to your opponent's head to make sure the sweep happens or doesn't happen depending on your perspective.
