Hi, I'm Gustavo Gasperin, BJJ Black Belt under Fabricio Werdum and multiple time World Masters Champion.
I’ve spent over 2 decades accumulating this knowledge, curating these techniques, and I’ve handpicked them based on my experience as an Instructor and competitor.
They are easy to learn and battle tested against people of all sizes, as you can see in the tournament video above.
As some of you may know, I walk around 165 lbs and compete at the Lightweight division regularly. In that tournament I decided to compete at the Ultra Heavyweight division (222 lbs & up) because I wanted to test myself against the big guys and for a strategic reason, there were less competitors in that weight division.
All I had to do was win my first fight to move to the semi-finals and be able to medal in this prestigious tournament. And that’s exactly what happened! I beat the first giant on points and advanced to the semis to face another monster, around 6’4”, 235lbs.
I got mounted by a giant, didn’t panic, didn’t expose myself for submissions, waited for the right moment, chose the right technique — Bridge to Elbow Escape Combo, part of The Ace of Escapes Series — and executed a well-timed escape.
Cool as a cucumber 🙂
How would your life be 3 months from now if you learned the skills to survive and escape from those positions? How about starting the new year with a solid defense that’s gonna give you unshakable confidence when rolling against bigger guys?
