What Will You Learn?

The Half Guard is one of the most versatile positions in all of Jiu-Jitsu! Paul Schreiner, BJJ black belt since 2007, looks to connect ALL ASPECTS of Half Guard in a way that keeps you safe, while offering ample amounts of attacks from the bottom! Keep your opponent at bay with strong structures and frames, while slowly luring them into your traps.

The overhook plays a vital role in ANY Half Guard game. Passing the Half Guard almost requires an underhook, so there is a good chance that even the best Half Guard player is going to have to defend it. With Connected Reaction Half Guard,Shreiner teaches you how to turn the tables on your opponent with a complete system of attack based off of the overhook, including his “forcing the hook 2.5” tactics!

Another major aspect that Paul shines his expertise on is utilizing the underhook from half guard. While there are plenty of options of attack, Shreiner looks to give you the upperhand consistently from half guard by using the underhook. If you are successfully securing and attacking with the underhook, your opponent cannot use it against you.

By mastering both the overhook and underhook from half guard you forces your opponent into unfamiliar territory. This causes some unusual reactions that are easily exploited, and can lead to advantageous situations like back takes. This is where Paul goes DEEP on his unique variation of the Jedi Mind Trick!

Connected Reaction Half Guard puts you in control from the bottom. Stifle the passer, and utilize a variety of attacks to sweep, take the back, or even secure a submission!
