Guard & Bottom Position Gameplan App


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

Click here to see all the apps in this series featuring black belt world champion Brandon ‘Wolverine’ Mullins 

In ‘Guard and Bottom Position Gameplan,’ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts Brandon ‘Wolverine’ Mullins and Stephan Kesting work together to give you a complete guard game, including the setups, sweeps, submissions, and transitions that really work even against people who are much bigger than you.

You’ll discover how to control your opponent’s posture so that he can’t even begin to pass your guard, regardless of his size.

From there you’ll learn then how to blend sweep and submission attacks, either sweeping your opponent to his back or finishing the match with a devastatingly effective choke or joint lock.

Although there are many different techniques covered in this app, the highlight is probably Brandon’s sophisticated set of triangle and omoplata attacks, and the finishes that cut right through any defences your opponent might throw in your way.

All of the techniques, tweaks, details, tricks and tips are put into the context of coherent ‘gameplans.’  These are specific strategies that tell you when you should use a specific technique and how to link different techniques together, making your jiu-jitsu MUCH more effective than if you were simply trying a bunch of individual moves in isolation.

The whole ‘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.

There’s a ton of great material here that you’ll be able to immediately add to your game.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!


Brandon Mullins is a 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 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
