Closed Guard Sweeps was produced by my friend Andreh Anderson who is a competitor and a BJJ black belt under Rey Diogo from the Carlson Gracie Team. He’s trained in Brazil, and with many top competitors in BJJ and MMA. In other words, he’s totally legit.
Closed Guard Sweeps is his compendium of advice, tricks, tips and techniques from the closed guard. Andreh recently moved to Brazil, but before he left I snapped up all his remaining stock of this awesome DVD because I thought it would provide immediate and tangible benefits to my readers.
Andreh is a cool, level-headed guy. So if you’re looking for lots of swearing, yelling, screaming death-metal background music, and flashy low-percentage techniques then this ISN’T the DVD for you…
But if you’re looking for calm, clear, precise instruction on effective and high percentage BJJ closed guard techniques then this is the best resource on the closed guard that I’ve seen to date.
Disclaimer: This is a BJJ-oriented product. If you mainly do MMA and/or submission grappling then you’ll still get some good value out of it IF you’re willing to put up with some gi-reliant techniques here and there. However if you train at all with the gi then it’s full of material that’s immediately applicable in your sparring, training and competition!
This Closed Guard DVD is just under two hours long and features more than 35 techniques, drills and variations.
But there’s a lot more to this DVD than just plain old techniques. Some of the highlights include:
- How to maintain your closed guard as long as you need to, and use much less energy than your opponent so that he tires himself out.
- Six drills to make your closed guard attacks smooth and instinctive.
- How to set up your grips and attacks while staying one step ahead of your opponent.
- A simple adjustment that relieves almost all the pressure on your ankles and makes it ten times harder for anyone to pass your closed guard.
- Subtle yet effective tricks used by high level black belts to keep their opponents off-balance and on the defensive.
