Mr. Kesting, as we like to call him, will surely tighten you up much like those late night commercials for ridiculous workout gear and fat loss pills. The only difference is that Stephan's advice actually works.

We are big fans of Stephan Kesting and his ability to breakdown grappling into the understandable mechanics of each movement. Quite frankly it makes me all warm and tingly inside.

Check out Stephan doing his magic in this great video where he details how to eliminate holes in your sidemount.


  1. When I began bjj I had huge issues with claustrophobia, so bad that I nearly quit because I was afraid to mention it and did not know how to deal with it. His website Grapplearts has a great section on it and anonymous levels of bjj guys from white to black share on how they dealt with it. After 4 years now no more claustrophobia.

    I have thanked Stephan before and I will do it again on here for providing a great resource. Thanks for helping me out with my claustrophobia and contributing so much to BJJ.

  2. He really is a great instructor. Would love to take lessons with him one day.
