What Will You Learn?
The Closed Guard is one of the most common positions in Jiu-Jitsu as well as self-defense scenarios, and even MMA. Since there is so much emphasis on staying in the top position in combat sports, the closed guard is often overlooked in it’s importance. Making your closed guard a formidable weapon requires constant practice and refinement! Ante Dzolic’s Cross Collar Grip system provides grapplers of all levels a clear-cut game plan on what to do from closed guard.
Waiting around for your opponent to get to work while in the closed guard is a surefire way to get your guard passed. The Cross Collar Grip is something you will be able to consistently get to with Ante’s setups and controlling mechanics. The Cross Collar strategy is very beginner-friendly because of how often you will be able to practice the position. Some positions that offer complex and flashy movements aren’t very repeatable and fall short when in competitive scenarios. This makes the Cross Collar Grip an effective strategy for practitioners of ALL levels, because of its effectiveness and practicality.
