Check Out The Trailer!

What Will You Learn?

The back is one of the most coveted positions in BJJ and its acquisition puts us incredibly close to the finish IF we can maintain the position! On the flip side, getting your back taken is cause for alarm and you NEED to have a system of escape in place that’s RELIABLE! Henry Akins received his black belt over 20 years ago, and his knowledge and understanding of the technical aspects of jiu-jitsu is boundless. He’s become one of the most in-demand instructors in the world! 

In The Back System Akins will give you the incredible tools you need to navigate the back from BOTH sides of the position! You’ll learn signature techniques from Akins that will help you exit the back unscathed and how to masterfully attack with high percentage submissions and details that will take your finishing rate through the roof! 


So, What’s In This Series?

We are at our most vulnerable when someone has secured our back! In the first two parts of the series, Akins will address the common conundrums of having your back taken and help you dismantle your opponent's plans to control and finish you. You’ll learn proper defensive posture, deal with the seatbelt grip, escape the dreaded body triangle, get quick taps with sneaky foot locks, and much much more! Akins will help you misalign your body to make meaningful connections nearly impossible, causing your opponent's attacks to fall apart and aid your escape! In the second half of the instructional Akins will start to sprinkle in some attacks! From controls and maintenance concepts to high percentage subs and entries into the position, Henry provides you with unique blueprints that you will not find anywhere else! Utilize classic rear naked choke details and learn the bow and arrow choke that will command instant taps!

Master the secrets of decades-old technique and trustworthy concepts, all under the guidance of one of BJJ’s most sought after figures! If you’re looking to build a more complete back game that will serve you for years to come, this is your opportunity!
