Defending the X Guard can be a huge pain in the butt. The absolute best defense to the X Guard is to never let anyone get under you. This is easier said than done.

Transitioning from X Guard to the Back can be both awesome and difficult. In this video I show you the finer points of this transition so that you can hit it with higher success.

The first roadblock on your way to the back is going to passing the leg over your head. This leg (the one by your ear) can be either extremely easy to move or extremely difficult, I find that my students have very little "grey" area with it.

Passing the leg over the head is a combination of pushing and lifting betwe more

The Fight Nerd caught up with Rob Constance, promoter of the "Ultimate Absolute" no-gi grappling tournament in New York City. This past Summer, Rob held their innaugral event, which was an epic hit with amazing matches and the grand winner taking home a $10,000 cash prize (as well as all competitors taking home an additional $1,000 for every submission). The tournament is returning in a little over a month on February 25, with the lightweights getting a chance to show their stuff at the Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan.

Constance breaks down the last show and how it got together, as well as his thoughts on why this tournament needed to exist. Furthermore, we get the inside scoop on who will be competing in the next very stacked show. more
