Dear Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter,
I may not know you personally, but I am willing to bet we are a lot alike.
You started Jiu Jitsu for a specific reason, you wanted to be more confident, you had a passion for the martial arts, you wanted to test yourself and become a better person… or some other similar reason, but regardless of WHY you started,
Slowly but surely, Jiu Jitsu turned into your obsession.
Jiu Jitsu is the life-blood upon which we become great men and women.
It helps us in every area of life and for that, guys like you and I, respect Jiu Jitsu with our heart and soul.
It doesn’t matter if you have been training for a little time or a long time…
After a certain point Jiu Jitsu becomes part of who you are.
Jiu Jitsu becomes woven into your molecular makeup and you will be a “Jiu Jitsu” guy (or gal) until you breathe your last breath.
If what I am saying rings true for you,
You owe it to yourself to read the whole thing and take the time to consider carefully what I am saying about what is possible for your life and Jiu Jitsu.
Reading this entire report could be one of the turning point moments in your life.
Before we get in to the meat of what I have to say here, let me formally introduce myself.
It’s likely you have heard my name around the Jiu Jitsu community.
For the most part I am known as being the most decorated American Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Competitor to ever live.
I am a 4X Black Belt IBJJF World Champion, I have won hundreds of competitions in my 15 years training and competing. I am the first American to ever win the Absolute Division at the Brazilian National Championships in Brazil. I have multiple World Champion students and a very large school and base of online BJJ students.
And all that’s very nice and everything, but to be honest
That is not really what I want to be known for.
Yes, the fact that I have won 4 IBJJF Black Belt Gold Medals is a big deal to me and does give me a huge sense of satisfaction.
But, medals are not really what I got into Jiu Jitsu for.
I got into Jiu Jitsu to challenge myself and become a better person, and for that quest there is no end. Regardless of how many World Champion medals I win, there is always another level to go to… another road to walk.
Really, I am here to talk about YOU and how YOU can reach your goals in Jiu Jitsu and the immediate, direct access to:
But first, let’s talk about a very important issue in Jiu Jitsu today…
In many ways the guard position has become the disgrace for Jiu Jitsu.
At one point the Guard position in Jiu Jitsu was the most exciting position to watch and use.
And due to many circumstances (that we won’t get into here – which is a conversation for another time and day) the Guard in Jiu Jitsu today for the most part has become BORING and something that I wouldn’t be proud to say is a critical piece of the Martial Art, I dedicated my life too.
But I am committed to something different, taking Jiu Jitsu back to what it was created for, and it starts with the way the Guard is looked at in BJJ.
Let me give you my #1 philosophy on the Guard in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:
The guard is about setting yourself up to finish the fight.
And not only that…
The key to setting yourself up to finish the fight is being well rounded from many different guard positions.
Let me just say that one more time so it really sinks in:
The key to setting yourself up to finish the fight is being well rounded from many different guard positions.
I have thousands of students when you combine my main academy in Oklahoma, affiliate schools, global seminar students and my online training program members.
My students have won multiple IBJJF World Championship medals at all levels – including on the Black Belt stage.
I am no stranger to how to teach effectively and how to have others benefit from my Jiu Jitsu knowledge. It’s undeniable that my personal experience gives me the authority to speak on this topic.
Over the years I have competed and trained with more high level Jiu Jitsu fighters than you could shake a stick at and the ones that are strong from many different angles and have the ability to gain a dominate position from the guard will win 9 times out of 10.
So, after countless hours of teaching, learning, rolling and figuring out what works for myself and what I have seen works with my thousands of students, there is one thing that I am certain of:
So, after many requests and a very long period of development, I am releasing what I believe to be the exact Guard System that will give you the keys to success to become a FINISHER on the mats.
I have created what I believe to be the answer to the problems we face in Jiu Jitsu today with my Guard Mastery DVD Training System that puts the focus on being in dominate positions and looking to finish the fight from the guard.
If we can get my Guard Mastery DVD in enough people’s hands then I believe we can change the course of Jiu Jitsu history.
Some people may say I am full of crap.
They may say that I am just “marketing” my DVD.
To those that doubt my deepest intentions:
Think whatever you want, and believe what you want. My goal is to make Jiu Jitsu better and save the great art of Jiu Jitsu from becoming about doing just enough to win or pussy footing around for little advantage points.
And if people follow and put my Guard Mastery System to work, then I am 100% sure that they will be doing Jiu Jitsu the way Grandmaster Helio Gracie intended it to be done.
My team, my students and the thousands that follow me will keep moving forward in the direction of Greatness.
So if you are looking for a guard game rooted in effective, dominate guard movements that have worked for 100 years and will work for the next 100 without having to be as flexible as Gumby or able to fold yourself in half like a trapper keeper.
Now, I think it is important we sift out any of the people that may not be right for this program.
Let me tell you whom this is NOT for:
Now let me tell you whom this IS for:
All my guard positions have been tested in the heat of battle, in fierce training sessions and the crucible of competition over the last 15 years of sacrifice on the mats.
Being the second American to ever win the Worlds at the Black Belt level.. at a time when guys went for the KILL and also being the FIRST American to EVER win the Absolute division at one of the most feared and sometimes acknowledged as the toughest tournament in Brazil the Brazilian National Championships in 2013..
I have a thing or two to say about how we are going to make Brazilian Jiu Jitsu get better instead of getting worse.
I can tell you one way it’s not going to get better.. and that’s if we end up playing a boring game just for advantages in our matches.
Even if you don’t compete, every time you walk in that gym you are competing with your toughest opponent.
Doing the things you need to do to grow as a human being and overcome your challenges.
My Guard Mastery series will give you the tools you need to have a really unstoppable guard packed with sweeps, transitions and effective powerful submissions.
Now, if you don not end up with my Guard Mastery training program, do not say that I didn’t warn you. This “passive” Guard style is pervasive and most of the time when people use it they don’t even realize it, and that could be you.
And if you have made it this far in this report, then it is time to get down to the nitty gritty about what you are going to get when you take this Guard Mastery Journey with me.
You get my BEST, MOST EFFECTIVE Guard Positions. The stuff I have NEVER shared outside my academy in Oklahoma City.
This is a smooth combination of Guard Positions that lead you from the very beginning and break down for you how to move freely from many different guard positions and can be seamlessly added to your existing training routine.
I am going to help you do the things you are ALREADY doing from the guard – just BETTER.
When I was filming my guard set I put SEVERE attention to detail and focus on giving you the real moves that work for my students and me.
No stone was left unturned in the creation of this Guard training program. You are getting my best most effective sequences of moves from the guard.
Imaging having the confidence of knowing that you have the best moves that are tested in real live competition all across the globe. The confidence to put people where you want them when you are training and the real ability to move easily from guard position to guard position.
And yeah you may think that these moves only work for me because I am a World Champion, but to that I say you are dead wrong. These moves are picked just for the average BJJ student. The same moves I have seen hundreds of my students pull off.
I understand that the whole world can’t train 2 times a day, and many people just want to be able to beat that one purple belt that always passes your guard. Well, this is your solution.
The Guard Mastery System has helped Thousands Like You Reach Their Goals in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu…
