Guide to the Guard

The guard is the quintessential position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The guard is not relevant in other grappling arts like Judo or Wrestling making it truly unique. The guard is your shield when on your back and when mastered can offer you many weapons. The guard position can be used to control and off-balance your opponent, control and submit your opponent, help you improve your position, and create space and stand back up. Our guide will help you understand this complex position, and when studied in order, will dramatically speed up your progression.
