The Guard and Bottom Game Formula contains more than 2 hours of in-depth BJJ instruction that’ll give you a huge advantage on the mat. You’ll get a complete, scientific and systematic guide to the guard position.

You’ll learn how to control your opponent from the guard, how to prevent his guard passes, and proven attack formulas to sweep or tap out your opponent.

The guard is the most complex position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. There are many different guard positions and variations, and each position has hundreds of techniques available to you.

Trying to memorise each of these techniques is a losing battle. It's all too much to remember, and it's too slow to access all that information in the heat of the battle.

But by showing you the underlying principles and concepts of the bottom position it makes learning the guard MUCH easier.

So you'll learn techniques faster and remember them easier if you start with the principles and concepts that underly all of jiu-jitsu.

Mechanical principles like leverage, framing and movement don’t change from position to position, they’re the same everywhere, and once you know them you can apply them all over the place.

Every technique, every transition, and every strategy in this app is based on those fundamental principles. We'll show you exactly how those principles apply and how to use them so you can then apply them in other situations.

In the BJJ Guard and Bottom Game Formula Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts Rob Biernacki and Stephan Kesting take you through their entire guard formula, starting with how how to control your opponent so he can’t easily pass your guard or disengage and run away.

Next you’ll learn the movements and principles of guard retention: these techniques will make your guard virtually impassable no matter what kind of guard pass your opponent uses.

Then you’ll learn how to sweep and submit your opponent, even if he already knows the techniques you are using.

The most important thing to realise is that against a quality opponent you rarely just catch him with ‘a technique’. Instead you have to first set it up so that he’s off balance and out of position. We’ll show you how to systematically dismantle his body alignment before launching your sweep and submission attacks.

Finally you’ll also learn the revolutionary new drills that’ll have you moving on the mat and attacking your opponent like an advanced player after just a few sessions.

Another life saver...

I am a white belt existing in the white belt world. You practice, you understand. This app has helped me already the first week of experimenting with these concepts in class. Visually its easy on the eyes. I work on computers all day so these means something. Everything is broken down in an easy to use menu with the option to watch everything consecutivley or piece by piece. I have other apps from Stephan all of which have taken my practice to another level. This one is deffinatley fallowing suit.

These videos have created a paradigm shift in how I think of the guard. I've started implementing these concepts in my training and in one training session I've been able to see improvement. What I really like about this content is how well it's sequentially organized and delivered. It provides a well explained overview, then breaks down each concept. Highly recommend to anyone that is struggling with their bottom game.

Effective theoretical insights

The key to the video is understanding why things work (or don't). It insights you can use effectively on your next role. The biggest challenge with the video is getting through the tons of useful material. This is one you will want to go back to many times.
