It doesn’t matter if your goal is casual recreation or if you wanna be the next UFC champ…
It doesn’t matter if you’ve got three pairs Chuck Liddell signature series UFC gloves, or if you wouldn’t be caught dead in a Tapout beanie…
This grappling stuff is a lot of fun, but it is still a martial art.
And that means knowing how to apply your techniques in a self defense situation when someone might be trying to rearrange your face with wild haymakers.
Well, a little bit of knowledge combined with a smidgen of occasional practice goes a long way here!

In it you’ll learn the techniques to defend yourself against strikes when you’ve got your opponent in the closed guard, open guard, and even when you’re trapped in mount.
Ultimately it all comes down to distance and range management, and we go into that a little bit too. Keep your enemies close, or very, very far away. It’s usually in the middle range that most of the damage occurs!
