Check Out The Trailer!

What Will You Learn?

Start fighting off your back with these aggressive and technical systems for attack from Lachlan Giles as he teaches you his 8-part K Guard series designed to help you heel hook and leg lock opponents, even if they are way bigger and stronger than you.

With every detail covered, you’ll learn what makes K guard so strong, how to use it to begin attacking, and how to find this innovative game plan from a ton of different positions. The K guard helps you expose the legs to attacks, even when you aren’t in versions of X guard, making it an unexpected but effective place to work from. 

K guard also helps you frame and keep pressure off, making it a helpful position for smaller grapplers to beat bigger ones. The K guard system and the inside heel hooking details you’ll learn here capture the same ways that Lachlan himself heel hooked three world class opponents at ADCC and won a medal in the absolute division.

Find out the strongest ways to enter K guard, using no-gi variations on the De La Riva, reverse De La Riva, closed guard and more. Lachlan breaks down everything you’ll ever need for K guard on this series, including strategies, troubleshooting, live rolling narration, and more.
