What Will You Learn?

Lachlan Giles Breaks Down Passing The Half Guard In Incredible Detail, With Everything From The Most Fundamental Concepts To World Caliber Attacks And Counters

Learn how to pass and smash the half guard, one of BJJ’s most important positions, with one of our most detailed releases ever from Lachlan Giles.. Lachlan, head coach of Australia’s Absolute MMA, is a half guard master and one of the best no-gi technicians in the world, and he is here to share all of the knowledge, technique, and strategy he has around how to stay safe and progress through the half guard.

Lachlan is an IBJJF World No Gi Championships medalist, a Pan Pacific champion (gi and no gi, weight class and absolute), and a multiple time ADCC veteran, and he does it with a methodical, technical style that he has used to beat bigger, stronger opponents consistently. With 15 chapters across 8-volumes, this is a complete universe on understanding and breaking down the half guard.



From top, you are going to be forced to deal with half guard every time you want to fight from top, and having answers in every position is key. With the half guard becoming a more dynamic position all the time, you need to know what to do and have a system around positionally sound, fundamental attacks. Lachlan’s 8-volume release goes through every major variation of the half guard and how you can negate your opponent and work for the best submissions and passes available.

Lachlan goes position to position, explaining your opponent’s options, your defenses and counters, and the applied concepts that will determine if you win or lose the position. Develop this system from beginning to end, with how to force the half guard, pass, finalize the positions, and troubleshoot any problems you have along the way. Win every time from the knee shield, lockdown, reverse half guard, half butterfly, deep half guard, and more!



This video set holds absolutely nothing back when it comes to the top half guard position. Starting from the basic positioning and little battles that you will face in the guard, you can make sure your fundamentals are on point before you move on to the passes and submissions that you can rely on when you are sparring and competing, even against grapplers bigger, stronger, faster, or younger.

Go along as Lachlan helps you troubleshoot against the common attacks each position will expect, a valuable piece of information for anyone looking to really develop their top game against a half guard ace.

More than just a great fighter, Lachlan is a really fantastic coach, with a genuine skill for explaining things in a way that is really accessible for anyone to understand. He is able to point out the key details that his students need, without making anything so complicated that only a few can get it. He runs one of the largest BJJ gyms in Australia, Absolute Mixed Martial Arts, and he is one of the head instructors of exciting submission ace Craig Jones.

This instructional series is an encyclopedia on the half guard position, giving you options and answers for any problems the top fighter may present. Lachlan’s worked hard to develop this system around top half, and now that system can help you have great success too. For anyone who wants to win every time from top, or anyone who needs to expand their knowledge as they study how to fight through the guard, or just someone looking to understand how a world class fighter approaches his game, this set is perfect for you.



Understand The Half Guard And Attack With A System Built Around Passing And Attacking The Guard!



Across 15 chapters, Lachlan explains in full detail every type of half guard you will need to solve to develop a full system around passing. Every chapter gives you the fundamental concepts you need to understand, the primary attacks you should always be working for, and how to troubleshoot against different problems you might encounter. By linking together every position Lachlan goes through, you can create a system around always moving closer to the pass, switching to a new type of half guard when needed, which will give you a huge edge in your top game.

Start this series by learning some of the key ways you can force the half guard from top, so you can start your passing series. From there, get Lachlan’s insights on the cross knee through, knee across, and smash passes that you can combine for maximum effectiveness. Each position offers you new challenges for passing, but with Lachlan’s precise detail-oriented coaching, you can slide, smash, and pass your way through to side control, mount, or the back.



There’s so many kinds of half guard that you need to understand to be effective in passing, and Lachlan covers each in expert fashion, giving you all you need to win. End your frustrations around deep half and knee shield, learn what to do when someone gets an underhook on you, and how you can break through lockdown hooks and butterfly hooks. No matter how someone wants to play half guard against you, have an answer ready for them.

In addition to the technical discussions, watch live narrated footage of Lachlan rolling against each of these positions and watch as his system is put to the test. You’ll hear him explain exactly what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and what to watch for as he takes on different fighters and different styles while demonstrating his moves live.
