Professor John Danaher Shows You How To Go Further Faster With This Martial Arts Masterclass In Guard Passing Fundamentals

Opening The Closed Guard With John Danaher:

What Will You Learn?

Push the vast limits of guard passing fundamentals and study Professor John Danaher’s unified system for killing the guard. Combine the core concepts with his one-of-a-kind insights to bring your knowledge of how to pass a guard to a whole new level. Many regard Professor Danaher as the single best instructor in all of grappling right now, and this is your chance to get 8 volumes packed with the same teaching he gives his championship athletes.

The mission of John Danaher’s Go Further Faster series is to share his incredible knowledge of the basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, so that everyone can benefit from high level instruction and technique no matter where they are. Professor Danaher’s style of coaching is thorough, detail-oriented, and created to be so systematic and complete that a grappler of any skill level can pick it up and come away with effective answers to his biggest problems.

Across this 8-volume masterclass series, John Danaher breaks down his overview of the problems guard presents, and how he goes about solving them. Every guard pass has certain requirements built in, and now you can learn exactly what those are and how to use them to your advantage with laws and principles of human movement and grappling. Instead of seeing the guard as infinite traps and bad options, instead see your path to dominant positions and safety with these helpful techniques and advantages.

These 8-volumes are like a college course on how to pass a guard, taught by one of the smartest coaches in the world. He covers every detail, no matter how small, so that you can get everything out of this series. Learn the right ways to walk, hold your posture, get back up from knock downs, and break frames to establish the pass.

What’s On This Series

Pass the guard by asking the right questions, then using your techniques to answer them. Every guard pass has the same steps, just in different forms. Break and reduce their connections and attacks, control distance, and pass from the safe positions that John recommends. With that step-by-step fundamental knowledge, you can begin moving safely through the guard with the passes Professor Danaher considers the most useful in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Learn the important movements and details behind the most popular passes in all of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and how they fit together into one cohesive game. Master the basics behind the knee cut pass, the toreando, the leg drag, smash pass, long step, and the over under and double under positions. Once Professor Danaher has explained all of the grips, forces, and steps in those attacks, you can begin to break down the sequences of guard passing one by one.

The Knee Drop by John Danaher:

Included in these passing sequences are some of the strongest staging positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. A staging position is a neutral position in the guard where you can safely work to pass, like John’s prefered split squat and double unders positions. Even if you do get tangled in the guard, see all of John’s favorite ways to untangle himself by picking apart guards like De La Riva, lasso, spider, x guard, and even closed guard like he is picking the right key for the right lock to get himself free. 

So What Does It All Cost?
