Course Overview

Do you find it hard to pass the Knee Shield Half Guard? How about Deep Half Guard and Lockdown?

The Half Guard game has evolved so much in the last decade or so that it has quickly become one of the strongest positions from the bottom.

Guys like Lucas Leite and Bernardo Faria have won multiple WORLD titles playing a Half Guard based game.

Even in MMA the Half Guard position is highly successful, look at Demian Maia for example...

What makes the Half Guard so effective is its ENDLESS possibilities.

It's a very dynamic guard. You can sweep, submit, take the back, transition to closed guard, transition to its many variations like z-guard, knee shield, lockdown, deep half, half butterfly, reverse de la riva, and so on...

So the question is... how do you STOP the Half Guard?

As you can imagine, there is no silver bullet.

Proper body positioning should kill about 60-70% of the whole Half Guard game. But you still gotta have answers for everything they throw at you. You gotta know how to pass its many variations in case they get in there.

So I called my longtime friend Leonardo "Cascao" Saggioro (2017-18 IBJJF Worlds silver medalist) to help me build my new online course, called Smashing The Half Guard.

Cascao is regarded as one of the best featherweight competitors of his generation, and is widely known for his SMASHING pass style.

He will be teaching the Gi based techniques that made him one of the best in the world, and I'm going to unveil my No Gi system that helped me win the No Gi Masters Worlds 3 times.

I will be narrating his technique series, since he speaks little english... hope you guys don't mind... straight from the jungle stuff 🙂

Gi, No Gi, passes, concepts, back takes, submissions, transitions to mount... we've got you covered in this 3-hour course.
