stay safe at all times and break the guard with ease
Inside the Closed Guard
Inside the closed guard is a dangerous place to be.
Getting caught in someone's closed guard is one of the most dangerous places you can be in a fight. Once you're caught, your opponent has tremendous control of you with the legs, and if they can break your posture, there are razor-sharp attacks from every angle that are not easy to defend.
That's why your first line of defense is to have a posture that is unbreakable. That is the first concept I will teach you in this course, and the hidden details that make it possible. After that, there are a multitude of other details that will mean the difference between successfully defending submissions, winning the battle for grips, regaining your posture if it is broken, as well as breaking the guard so you can pass. Everything you need to know about how to survive and take the dominant position is in this course.
