Defense & Escape Gameplan App


This is the eighth app in the How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent series.

In ‘Defense & Escape Gameplan’ BJJ black belt and world champion Brandon ‘Wolverine’ Mullins gives you his step-by-step instructions for protecting yourself in, and escaping from, the worst positions in jiu-jitsu.

Defense is important because sometimes things just don’t go to plan. One minute you’re doing great but then you slip up or your opponent gets lucky and suddenly you’re on the bottom, pinned and fighting off attacks.

Brandon’s defensive secrets will come in handy every time you get swept, taken down, or have your guard passed. He covers the highest percentage escapes for the mount, technical mount, the quarter guard, rear mount, rear mount with figure 4′d legs, side mount and the turtle.

These are the techniques you need to get out of trouble and get back in the game!  It’s supremely useful, easy to learn material that does NOT rely on having tons of strength or crazy athleticism.  Seriously, you’ll find yourself using it all the time.

The entire How to Defeat the Bigger Stronger Opponent series is designed to give you the techniques and strategies that are especially effective against opponents who are much bigger, stronger, and more muscular than you.

You’ll also learn how to stay safe and avoid injury on the mats when rolling with heavier grapplers.


Brandon Mullins is a world champion BJJ black belt based out of Houston Texas. A very active competitor, Brandon has tested himself in well over 200 competition matches at BJJ, no-gi submission grappling, and Judo tournaments.

He has compiled a phenomenal record, both with and without the gi: he’s won gold medals at the Black Belt division at the No-Gi World Championships… And at the European Championships…  And multiple gold medals in the Advanced division at Grappler’s Quest… And medals at the Mundials, the Pan-Ams, the US Open, and the Gracie World’s.

Brandon is a small guy: he competes at 118 lbs.  In an average BJJ class there are usually women and children bigger than he is.  In order to be successful despite the size disadvantage he has had to become a very technical grappler, evaluating every position, paring away all wasted movements and never relying on brute strength. His disadvantage is our gain, because surviving on the mats as a smaller grappler has made him a superb (and very popular) teacher of the art of BJJ.

Stephan Kesting is a BJJ black belt, and a Combat Submission Wrestling instructor. He has been training in the striking, grappling, and weapons-oriented martial arts for over 30 years.

A master teacher, Stephan has helped thousands of grapplers improve their skills through his crystal-clear instructional apps, DVDs, online videos and articles at his flagship website
