If you’ve ever been shown Spider Guard by your instructor then chances are it was the double feet on biceps variation. This is the classic form of Spider Guard first developed in the eighties, which has continued to change and evolve and as a consequence is still very effective today.
The Spider Guard is one of the most important positions of modern BJJ. If used correctly it’s incredibly difficult for someone to pass your guard, and you can use it to launch a huge assortment of powerful sweeps and attacks to keep your opponents on the run.
The Spider Guard is the favourite tool of many BJJ champions and top competitors including Cobrinha, Keenan Cornelius, Tinguinha, Draculino, Romulo Barral, Marcelino Freitas, Michael Langhi and Leandro Lo.
But it can seem like a complicated position, and if you’ve ever had problems with it then there might just be some help on the horizon.
For the first time, in the Grapplearts Spider Guard Masterclass series of apps you can have an exact blueprint for this essential BJJ position.
Volume 2 of Spider Guard Masterclass is simply the most detailed, comprehensive, and useful resource ever produced on the double biceps variation of the spider guard.
First you’ll learn how to move correctly and how to properly establish your grips and hooks in Double Biceps Spider Guard.
Then you’ll learn how to get to your new home base from any position, starting with basic entries from the closed guard, and progressing to more advanced entries used by high level competitors.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg – it gets even better…
The lion’s share of this volume is dedicated to the interconnected sweeps, submissions and combinations that make the Double Biceps position a lethal weapon.
My favourite part is the simple four part attack formula to use when just starting out from this position. But that progresses into intermediate and advanced attacks, as well as advanced pass-prevention techniques that’ll leave your opponents thwarted and frustrated.
There’s enough material here to give you an edge against any opponent for a long, long time.
And as always, crazy flexibility and athleticism are NOT required.
Spider Guard Masterclass 2 – The Double Biceps Spider Guard – will give you a complete gameplan, complete with techniques, drills, and strategies, for the modern double biceps Spider Guard. It’s a competition-proven system for building an aggressive, attack-oriented guard.
It is a volume of the Spider Guard Masterclass module within the Grapplearts BJJ Master App.
