“The Older You Are - The More You Need To Be Using Half Guard”- John Danaher

Half Guard Bottom The Alignment Issue by John Danaher

What Will You Learn?

Why is it that older grapplers are so attracted to Half Guard? Well, as Prof. Danaher explains: it all has to do with connection. Half Guard completely connects all of your body to half of his - creating an advantage if used correctly.

Because of the connection that Half Guard allows, the position becomes much more dependent on understanding situations and the ability to follow sequences, than it relies on strength and speed. If you are someone who likes to study: this is good news and can give you all of the advantages that you need.

Of course, Half Guard offers an interesting paradox. John coaches his students to pass both Closed Guard and Open Guard and get to Half Guard to begin passing. So why, then if Half Guard is such a tough position, would he try to be on the “wrong side” of it while passing.

The answer lies in understanding it and because Half Guard is a position that so emphasizes the connection between the two combatants, understanding is key - whether on the bottom or top. It is an advantage to be in Half Guard: whether on top or bottom, when you understand the body mechanics, position and sequences you need to win the position.

This series focuses exclusively on the bottom player in greater detail than anyone has ever gone. Over 8 Hours of Content!
