So What’s On This Series?
Adam’s best passes all start with the knee slide, using his leg like a wedge to split the hips and get great positions. He teaches the most important and overlooked details on how to get to the knee slide and how to work through your opponent’s reactions, all the way to side control. From there, he starts building out his series around the common counters and defenses, including when opponents get the quarter guard, the reverse de la riva, and knee shield. Having answers for every move will give you the advantage all the time, turning you into a beast and tactician from top.
When you combine your passes, you double your power and you get to even better positions more often. Adam combines his knee slide with a smash pass, so he can attack both sides of the body. Adam shows how he uses the smash pass to kill the reverse de la riva hook, and how he uses that pass to hunt the back and pass to mount against stubborn opponents. By adding pressure to your top game, with the precision passes he shows, you will be leveling up in no time.
