In this video I show a transition from Closed Guard to Turtle position. keep in mind this is not going to be a sweep (unless you pull them so hard they fall into Side Control), but it is a great way to get out from under someone. I really like this move because it focuses on strong basics (both the technical stand up and the hip switch). This is something that you can have success with from day one through all of your skill levels. Collar Drags are serious business. Make sure that when y watch video >>

This video is a closer look at the Basic Armbar from Closed Guard. Although the title has the word "basic" in it you will see that there are a lot of steps involved. Being honest there are a lot of other armbar variations that are easier than this armbar but teaching this at an early stage focuses on a lot of fundamental BJJ movements like staying tight, elevation of the hips, rotation of the body, domination of the arm, squeezing the knees and not crossing your feet. I find that although the watch video >>

In this clip I look into the Scissor Sweep from Closed Guard. This is a very basic sweep that most of us learned as white belts but typically stop using as we progress past the beginner ranks. The reason we discard this move is not because it is a terrible move but more so because it requires our opponents base to be forward or driving into the persons Guard. There are many different variations to this move and I briefly address the angle of the knee and the benefits of having it across the h watch video >>

This video shows how I perform the Hip Bump Sweep. This is a very basic sweep and a very high percentage sweep all through the ranks of BJJ and even into MMA. There are many different schools that show how to do this and there are a lot of acceptable variations. In this video I show a way to swing your arms up around your head and come up off of your ribs, elbow and hand. When you come at this angle it is very difficult for your opponent to stuff the sweep while also being very comfortable t watch video >>

This is a look at the basic Cross Collar submission from guard. This is one of the first lessons taught during out Closed Guard block. You can see that I focus on breaking the posture using the core muscles instead of pulling with your arms. This will save your grip strength for when you're actually choking your opponent. In addition to breaking posture this video really emphasises the importance of good hip movement. There are tons of legimiate setups for the Cross Collar Choke and there a watch video >>

In this video I show a very simple stacking defense for the armbar. There are multiple different ways to defend but I enjoy showing this to beginners because it is a defense that you can use when you didn't see the setup for the armbar coming and your opponent already has their angle and their hips out. Make sure when you stack your opponent up you get your knee as close as possible to your opponents ear and you post your back leg at an angle so that your knee is against your opponents lower b watch video >>

This is an in depth look at how I do the Kimura from Closed Guard and a look at how to overcome the most basic defense for the Kimura. As you notice I start off by dominating the arm and not by clasping the wrist. This is different than I was originally taught. I made this change after many hours of application after I realized that controlling the wrist not only alerts your opponent to your intentions but also leads to a lower percentage finish. Once you get your Kimura grip on the arm the watch video >>

This video is an instruction into how to do the Two on One standing pass. This is one of my favorite passes because it is very dominate and eliminates a lot of your opponents sweep options. There are a lot of steps to this pass but when done correctly is highly effective. Notice that I use the hand that was controlling the hip to dominate the arm. There will be a moment where you have minimal control of the hips because of this. Make sure you pay attention and watch out for the armbar. Onc watch video >>

This video is an in depth look into the Basic Stacking Pass. This is a very common pass that is taught to a lot of white belts. The reason this come so early in the curriculum is because it requires very little (if any) base whereas standing passing can make the students feel like wheebles. Keep in mind that it is very important to have good posture in the Closed Guard. If you look at the positioning of my arms they are both straight with one hand dominating the chest and one dominating the watch video >>
