Spider Guard Masterclass 5 – Invincible Spider Guard: Your Guard Retention and Pass Prevention Blueprint

A Complete Gameplan for Shutting Down Your Opponent’s Guard Passing Attempts!

This app presents you with all the techniques you need to defend your guard against even the most determined guard passer.

You’ll get a complete gameplan and detailed step-by-step techniques for maintaining Spider Guard against high level opponents who are trying to pass your guard.

The regular price for this app is $19.99, but because it’s a new release it’s on sale for half price.  This week you can grab it for only $9.99, which is a fantastic deal for this level, quality and quantity of instruction. But hurry, because after this initial new release period the price will be doubling.

In this final instalment of the 5 app series of five apps you’ll get simple yet incredibly effective tricks, techniques and tactics to prevent the most popular, most powerful passes used in competition these days.

First you’ll learn the deceptively simple grip and hook retention ‘cheats’ that shut down the guard pass before it starts, but you’ll also get powerful techniques to recover the guard even when your opponent is almost past your legs.  This app will save you years of frustration trying to figure all this stuff out on your own.

Volume 5 of Spider Guard Masterclass is simply the most detailed, comprehensive, and useful resource on guard retention and guard pass prevention ever produced.  Check out what’s covered below!

The following is a very detailed blueprint for defeating the ‘leg shuck’ pass which is becoming very popular in competition these days. But there are similar breakdowns for other guard passes as well, including the Bullfighter Pass, the X Guard Pass, de la Riva Guard Passes, and much more…
