MORE BASICS YOU MUST MASTER: BREAKING THE CLOSED GUARD.


I find it really annoying when it's finally time to roll at the end of class, and somehow I get stuck with the kid that has a freakish closed guard. I spend 5 minutes trying to keep my posture and pry open his leg death grip on me. If I'm smart on that particular day, I avoid his guard altogether and work my pass game


Only if it could be easier....

Thanks to the power of the Internet, we hit you with another basic technique that is too often overlooked. Watch JJ Machado Black Belt, David Dunn, walk us through the basic elements of properly breaking the closed guard. After a detailed explanation, Dunn also shows us how to pass once the guard is open.
