Cross Side Control

Physically and mentally break your opponents by learning to use your weight, that way your hands are free to attack, and they simply have no hope.

Cross Side Control

Gravity is free, and is far more effective at crushing your opponent's will to fight than trying to muscle it.

From the cross side position, you have the ability to sap your opponent's strength, oxygen, and will to fight in a matter of seconds, if you know what you're doing. 

To do this, you must learn to use your weight instead of your muscles to control them. 

This takes some inside knowledge because there are many hidden details most people will never discover on their own, about how to balance yourself properly, and how to train so you can move comfortably and distribute the maximum amount of force into your opponent with the least amount of effort. 


Why is this unique approach to cross side control crucial to your ability to finish the fight?

 The ability to maintain control from the cross side position keeps you safe from taking damage. 

 Cross Side Control also allows you time to either advance your position by going to the mount, or it buys you time to be able to set up your submissions.

 And along with maintaining the cross side position, what I'm going to show you in this course is how to be extremely heavy from the cross side position.

 The ability to be heavy has a dramatic effect on your opponent. First, it makes them extremely uncomfortable so they are forced to react, often in a way that benefits you and not them. 

 This will sap your opponent's energy and strength so that the more time they spend here, the worse it gets for them. My students have built reputations for tapping people from pressure alone from cross side. You will learn how to do this too.

What Will I Learn?

 The same principles and techniques I saw Rickson use in his 40s to easily tap a world champion who was visiting the gym in his competition prime and decades younger. The champ tapped to Rickson's pressure from side control alone. My students have built reputations for tapping people from pressure routinely as early as blue belt, and you'll be able to do the same in no time.

 How to use your weight to control your opponent and how to train your balance so your hands are always free to move and attack when you need them. This is like having a superpower compared to those who don't know how to do it.

 How to react to the most common attempts to defend and escape this method of cross side so you quickly and easily shut down any resistance. It won't be long before you know that once you get to the cross side position, it's game over.
