So What's On This Series?
Own The Half Guard Position And Never Get Smashed Again
This instructional series begins with the most basic understandings of how Lachlan gets to half guard, how he stays there, and how he makes sure that he is the one in charge of the position. These little battles, the “invisible jiu-jitsu” are usually the difference between your sweeps and submissions working or not working, and being sure you have them as perfect as you can is key. Once your fundamentals are sound, you can begin with the main attacks that any position carries, the counters to what your will see your opponents trying to do, and plenty of troubleshooting against stubborn top players. All along the way, you will be building strategy with Lachlan, working through hsi hierarchy of positions, constantly building on your knowledge base to expand the possibilities.
Half guard is pretty unique as far as guards go, because your opponent will always feel some confidence to pass and attack that they may not in other guards. Knowing this, Lachlan includes a comprehensive section on how to deal with the bad positions that many half guard players end up, including getting crossfaced, getting smashed with pressure, and holding onto a quarter mount. Instead of giving away the pass, and possibly the fight, now you can have an answer on how to work your way back into the game. Especially nifty is Lachlan’s use of the switch base, a pretty common position for half guard, that he uses in some innovative ways to get on top, or even take the back.
Once your fundamentals and recoveries are covered, it’s time to move into your attacks. Every position on this instructional set is a full deep dive into what Lachlan is looking for, and how he is bringing the fight to his opponent. You’ll also learn when each guard is right for each moment, and what is unique about every variation. Instead of trying to force one single position, gain the knowledge of how to move and accommodate any opponent, all with the confidence that you still have the skill to win.
Lachlan’s use of different half guards really makes this series a must have. Follow along as he explains his full waiter sweep progression, see how he has modified his x guard series to keep his opponent’s guessing, and learn the z guard series that has made students like Craig Jones household names in BJJ. Your half guard can become one of the most dynamic parts of your game, with Lachlan’s help!
