What Will You Learn?
The X Guard is a powerful position that is used at the highest levels of the sport to defeat guard passers of all shapes and sizes. One reason the X guard is so effective is because it allows you to put your entire body in position to control your opponent's lower half. This makes passing the guard extremely difficult and leaves the guard passer vulnerable to both sweeps and submissions. Joao Chiozzi, Marcos Barbosa Black Belt, looks to provide a complete system of attack with the X Guard across this 2-part series.
Chiozzi covers match-winning concepts for the X guard including setups, entries, grip variations, sweeps, submissions, and more. The X guard can seem complex at first glance. However, with Joao’s instruction the position becomes much more manageable in every aspect. Once you are able to effectively obtain the X guard by using Joao’s setups, you’ll be able to spend a lot of time plotting your next attack. This is made possible by using the controls and maintenance techniques that are covered in the series.

Put your opponent into the perfect position to execute a variety of sweeps that can be chained together to create hard-to-stop sequences.
