This is the sixth app in the How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent series.

This series is designed to give you the techniques and strategies that are especially effective against opponents who are much bigger, stronger, and more muscular than you. You'll also learn how to stay safe and avoid injury on the mats when rolling with heavier grapplers.

In this sixth app, Takedowns and Top Position Gameplan, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts Brandon 'Wolverine' Mullins and Stephan Kesting work together to give you a complete gameplan for going from a standing position to finishing your opponent on the ground with devastatingly effective submissions.

You'll learn Brandon's competition-proven techniques and strategies for preventing your opponent from being able to control you, getting your grips on your feet, taking your opponent down, passing his guard, getting to a dominant position, and submitting him with chokes and joint locks.


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 tournament compiling 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 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.

A good value

This app initially caught my eye due to the z guard pass and takedowns. I always love learning more takedown options and passing z guard is something I am working on.

Brandon's instruction is clear and detailed, yet he doesn't ramble for to long. I feel the takedowns section is a accessible for folks even w/o judo exp. I have had good success with both of the z guard passing options so far.

I have not had time to dive into the rest of the lessons yet, but I am sure I will find them just as good. I like how tournament footage is included as well

Brandon Mullins and Stephan Kesting love to teach and it's evident in this series. The takedown and top position app does a good job of explaining some fundamental BJJ principles through the various techniques. Plus you gotta love watching these techniques put to use in the video clips from actual matches. Thank you for the great resource!
