So What's On This Series?
Learn What Makes A Half Guard Bulletproof
-Like any good coach, Neil wants to give you the tools to develop on your own, not just under his watchful eye, so his instructional begins with the most important and overlooked part of grappling knowledge; the fundamental principles behind the position. What is a fundamental principle? It’s a set of rules (and consequences) about what you can do (and what you can’t do) in any position, and what will be the little battles and decisions that will lead to winning (or losing) in any position or attack. With methodical care, Neil explains exactly what you need to know to always stay out of danger and moving closer to victory with each step you take. Once you have that down, he starts with some basic wrestling-inspired sweeps, adding in a few crucial details that will leave you blasting through like an experienced takedown artist.
-Neil’s expertise is perfect for no gi, especially with as many attacks as possible legal. His entries into leg locks are a mix of unorthodox attacks, and once he’s rolling to your ankles, it’s a wrap. These catch wrestling compression locks and twisting holds aren’t flashy parlor tricks, these are reliable submissions that you can flow to just by changing your angles, grips, and perspective around half guard.
Hook and Shoot With The Best of Them
-Half guard is a dynamic position, if you let it be, especially because it’s really not just one set position. Most people know the standard half, deep half, knee shield, and maybe a few small tweaks, and any of them can work if done correctly. Once you start melding these new concepts and positions, Neil is going to show you a few new positions, starting with the Octopus guard, a half guard variation that Neil has down to an art. You’ll see what makes this work for Neil and how it can work for you, including sweep after sweep and submission after submission. Take this all new control and release the Kraken! Once you are done learning all you need there, dive into the snap guard and all the reversals and taps you can create from there. This is a full encyclopedia of grappling wizardry!
