Jiu-jitsu has thousands of different techniques. This is one of the beautiful things about the art, but on the other hand it can also make it seem totally overwhelming. How on earth can you master so many different moves, especially if your training time is limited?
But it turns out that there is a secret solution…
You see, if you break down Jiu-jitsu into its fundamental components, then you really just see a few fundamental movements being used again and again. These movements are the building blocks that underly all of jiu-jitsu, and most ‘new’ techniques are really just putting these relatively basic building blocks together in a new way.
Even the craziest, most advanced techniques are built from certain fundamental movements that you probably already know.
It’s not a question of re-inventing your jiu-jitsu again and again for each new move you learn – instead it’s all about being able to hone in on the underlying movement patterns.
The ‘Advanced BJJ Fundamentals’ instructional on Apple, Android and Kindle devices breaks this all down for you so that your game will instantly improve with this information.
In this app instructional world BJJ champion Brandon ‘Wolverine’ Mullins Brandon breaks these movements down for you (including how you can drill them on your own) and then shows you how those very same movements can be used again and again in ever-more advanced applications.
This material will build a super-strong foundation for the next ten years of your jiu-jitsu training.
Plus you’ll learn some really cool techniques that I guarantee you haven’t seen before too.
ABOUT BRANDON AND STEPHAN
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 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 Grapplearts.com.

We don’t want you to buy something sight unseen. So here are a selection of previews, each technique building on the fundamental movements that are taught in the Advanced BJJ Fundamentals…
Preview 1: A High Percentage Triangle Choke from Half Guard
In this clip Brandon teaches his signature triangle choke attack from the half guard position. Note how he teaches this technique as a series of shrimping and bridging movements, which are fundamental BJJ building blocks used in almost every single submission, guard sweep and escape technique.
Preview 2: How to Use Technique, Not Strength, to Prevent the Guard Pass
The core movement in this guard pass prevention technique is the sideways roll. It may look fancy, but in Advanced BJJ Fundamentals Brandon breaks this movement down and shows you almost anybody can learn to do this smoothly and safely.
Preview 3: Rolling Judo Entry for the Bow and Arrow Choke
The bow and arrow choke is one of the highest percentage finishes in BJJ competition. In this clip you’re not only going to learn how to do this choke, but also a really cool entry that Brandon has used many times in competition (check out the tournament footage at the end of the clip).
Preview 4: Escaping the Turtle and Getting Back to Guard
Being in turtle is usually better than being pinned, but it still sucks. Your opponent can rest all his weight on you and attack you with chokes, joint locks and turnovers. Here’s how to use a variation of the technical standup fundamental motion to escape the turtle and get safely back to your guard.
