What Will You Learn?

The Ageless Jiu-Jitsu series looks to provide an in-depth guide for older and less athletic grapplers looking to stay competitive with their younger counterparts. Ageless Jiu-Jitsu Top Game No-Gi is focused on a systematic approach of forcing half guard, getting chest to chest before executing a variety of passes, pinning opponents, and obtaining a submission. 

With over 8 hours of in-depth instruction, "Ageless Jiu Jitsu Top Game No-Gi" covers all the essential techniques you need to know to slow down, tire out, and submit more athletic opponents.  Danaher’s unique top-game pinning system will help you understand the goal of pinning, and how to use it to not only tire out opponents but also allows you to set up match-ending submissions. 

The series focuses on specific submissions that are easy to perform, low risk, and don’t involve you giving up position. A key component to the Ageless Jiu-Jitsu series is to use high percentage techniques that don’t require high risk. With John’s approach if your opponent manages to defend a submission, the process simply starts over from the same dominant position. Before long even the most athletically gifted athletes will start to run out of energy!

So whether you're a beginner looking to develop a strong foundational top game or an experienced practitioner looking to refine your skills, "Ageless Jiu Jitsu Top Game No-Gi" is the ultimate tool for taking your game to the next level.
