The Rubber Guard On Full Display
-After you see how to safely and effectively lock someone in your rubber guard (no ‘yoga master’ flexibility needed!), learn all the controls and attacks these new angles and hooks create for you. This incredible posture control with an effective series of overhooks makes this position into a buffet of potential sweeps and submissions. You’re going to find yourself in better and better spots as your opponents try traditional defenses, including a slick omoplata shoulder lock entry that has proven itself in EBI and other high level tournaments as one of the most effective no gi guard attacks in the world.
-Traditional self defense logic says that the person on top is probably winning. The rubber guard is built with self defense in mind, making it the perfect position for anyone who is looking to use their BJJ to compete in mixed martial arts or someone training to be able to defend themselves outside of the gym. The danger of being in the “inferior position” no longer exists once you’ve used your body’s leverage to control their posture and begun to isolate their limbs. Brandon takes special care to explain how to account for any kind of attack, bringing you one step closer to keeping yourself safe. This guard will work for you, no matter your body type or experience level!
Hook Everyone Up In Your New Meathook
-While the rubber guard gets most of the 10th planet recognition, the meathook is actually the first position that Eddie Bravo started with, before building out. The meathook is a supercharged control of the posture and the overhook, using your body at the proper angle to keep everything nice and tight. Brandon leads you from beginner introductions to the guard to advanced attacks and traps you can set. You’ll learn how to masterfully win the little battles for space that will determine if you win or lose the fight, how to enter into the guard from a wide variety of more common guards (including closed guard, butterfly guard, z guard and more), and how to proceed and attack once you are there!
Trap And Control In All New Ways!
-As you get deeper into this series you’re going to be finding new and different ways to control someone from your guard. Of all the techniques shown on this set, there may not be any more aptly named than “The Stocks”. From your already solid meathook control, you take this one step further to isolate both arms at once, leaving you free to hunt the submission at will. One time through and you’ll know this move earned its name by looking painful! As an added bonus, check out the neck crank variation will leave you realizing your opponents will need to be the flexible ones, not you.
-Learn to use your body positioning to create more submission attempts than ever, especially the omoplata. Once you have attacked the shoulder, see Brandon take you through the exact mechanics of the move against the joint, and how you can prevent the tricky rolls that can be difficult to stop. Using The Carny position to reinforce your sub, you’ll be able to stop the roll, finish the submission, and even guide your opponent through to any position you want (even including a flashy heel hook!)
-Plus much, much more...
This set is your key to unlocking some of the most intriguing techniques in all of modern grappling. No matter your current level let this set be your tool to bringing your guard game to a whole new level! Remember, like Brandon says himself, “If I can do it, so can you!”
