What Will You Learn?
Butterfly Guard is one of the most useful positions in Jiu-Jitsu. It is a position that lends itself well to both gi and no-gi, and can be used by practitioners of ALL levels. Jon Satava is a Marcelo Garcia black belt, and is widely regarded for having one of the BEST butterfly guards in Jiu-Jitsu. His 6-part series, Seated Solutions, is designed from the ground up to provide foundational concepts, dealing with standing passers, kneeling passers, and much more!
Build your butterfly retention from the ground up with Jon’s easy-to-learn foundations section of the instructional. Here you’ll learn the finer details of stance and posture and how that relates to using butterfly guard to a high level. Prevent opponents from starting tricky passing sequences by learning how to stifle offense early and often with Jon’s guide connecting to opponents with your hands and feet.
Once the foundations are in place the rest of the series is much easier to add into your butterfly guard arsenal. The next several sections are dedicated to dealing with a wide range of positions and situations that butterfly guard players commonly encounter. Satava will help you understand how to use your butterfly guard to take on both standing and kneeling passers.
