This is one of my favorite Closed Guard Passes. It is usable in both Gi and no Gi. The power for this pass comes from the turning of the knee onto the rib cage. Make sure that when you step with the foot closest to the hip that it is not to close or to far away. I wish that I could accurately describe in words the spacing but it is something that is felt through many repetitions. Make sure that when you stand you keep your opponents torso bent. If they extend their abdominal muscles an

This is the epitome of a big man pass. It may actually be my favorite pass against people who just try to keep their legs closed.

If you have ever relied on using your elbows to open the inside of the thighs then this is the pass for you! Just replace this pass with any time you would have done that pass!

Although this pass is extremely simple it does have a technical aspect to it. Make sure when you take grips on the upper part of the pants that you keep your arms locked out. Please t more

The Lapel Feed is one of my favorite moves. It is especially useful against strong opponents or extremely spastic opponents as it allows you a huge amount of control over their upper body/arm.

The most difficult part of this sequence is going to be getting the lapel untucked. There will be times when it is already out because you've been grappling for awhile, other times you will have to purposefully untuck it.

Typically I will take an over the back grip to break my opponents posture and more

In this video I show one of my favorite sweeps the Pocket Sweep. There are a lot of different entries into this sweep but the most important thing is passing the arm across your centerline.

The easiest way to do this is to take control of that arm and either move your hips across or by simply using brute force and passing it in front of your chest. Normally I use a combination of the two things to get maximum efficiency.

Once you get the arm across the center line it is very important more

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 more

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.

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 more

In this video I show a very dominating Open Guard. This is one of my favorite passes against an opponent that has a good seated Guard. This pass requires good base and, most importantly, a lot of confidence.

Make sure that when you step into the space between your opponents legs that you enter with your legs bent and not bent at the waist. It is important to have your already bent forward when it's making contact with your opponent's chest to create enough forward force to complete this pa more

This video shows one of my favorite and most popular passes. I learned this pass while training in Brazil and it came in hand against the Spider Guard players that play off of their shoulders to avoid the pass. There are a couple of different options but this one leads directly to the back.

This is actually a very high percentage and looks really cool. The deciding factor in success is going to be if you can get your grips while your opponent is up on his/her shoulders. If you encounter som more

This is one of the single most important videos of mine and the fewest people will watch it. At a quick glance it appears like a simple move that does not require a lot of attention, but trust me when I tell you that having the ability to regain the underhook is one of the most important things you can do.

First of all it is important to avoid being flattened on your back. You should always have the underhook when available but I understand that sometimes your timing will be off and your op more
