Do You Hate Getting Your Guard Passed? Learn One Of The Most Unique Guard Systems In The World!


In the video below Gordon Ryan is going to explain his guard passing system. Passing the guard is one of the most fundamental things you can study in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It is something you learn from day one, and will spend your entire careering mastering. There are many different ways to pass the guard, but it the true effectiveness is in the details. Nobody understands this better than Gordon Ryan. Watch the video below of Gordon Ryan demonstrating his guard passing system, and then we will break it down. Check it out now!

This is a very effective guard passing system that Gordon Ryan has invented. There are three types of passing you will use to pass a guard. The first style of passing is loose passing. Typically this is where your opponent is on his back and you throw a leg to get by his guard. Another great form of loose passing is when you step in with your inside leg and post your hands on the mats. With heavy hands and light legs, it makes it easy for you to pummel past your partner’s legs, dropping down heavy chest to chest.

Loose passes can be used as transitions into tight passes. For example if your training partner prevents you from getting that chest to chest connectivity you can pummel past his arms and legs with a loose pass which will allow you to transfer into a tight side control in order to start working submissions. When you chain these types of passes together you can get chest to chest connectivity, where you pin your partner and work a submission or create back exposure.

As Bernardo points out, it is not as common to pummel with your legs. A lot of guys will only use their arms to pummel, but Gordon Ryan incorporates the lower half of his body into his guard passing to make it much more effective. With his hands firm on the ground, Ryan is able to use leg pummeling from loose transitions to work his way towards submissions or tight passing. This is a very effective way of passing the guard, and will certainly help you if you struggle with guard passing yourself. So give this a try the next time you step on the mats, and remember to use your entire body to pass the guard!

In under just 18 months Gordon Ryan went from an "in shape" grappler weighing 163 lbs to a 232lb monster and then DOWN to 194 lb and looking JACKED. Gordon tore through ADCC and is now considered one of the best grapplers in the world. He just released a new DVD / On Demand Series called "Getting Swole As a Grappler". It gives you his exact program, tips, diet advice and more on how to achieved jackedness and be a complete bad ass on the mats.
