What Will You Learn?
The longer you can spend with back control, the more you are winning the fight. With safety from their attacks and the ability to start locking on chokes, the back is quite possibly the best position in grappling and MMA. Now, you can learn from one of MMA’s greatest minds with Firas Zahabi’s Control Freak series on back control.
Coach Firas Zahabi is the head coach of Tristar MMA, the premier training facility in Montreal where great champions like Georges St. Pierre and Rory MacDonald have sought his guidance. Coach Zahabi is one of the most technical, methodical, and well rounded coaches in the game (including a BJJ black belt under Professor John Danaher).
Stay on the back by predicting their escapes with easy-to-understand advice from Coach Zahabi, giving yourself maximized chance at finishing the fight. Use elbow drags, lockdowns, knee bumps, butterfly hooks, and more as tools so you can realign your body and stay in control.
Use back control variations like the crucifix, straight jacket, twister hook, and more to give you options to stay behind the opposition and cycle through offense. The secret to grappling success over time is control, and Firas’s series is built to maximize this important concept with effective techniques anyone can use.
