In Week 1 of the GB3 curriculum, we will be working on techniques from the Sit Up Guard from the GB3 Online course with Prof. Flavio Almeida.
Have you checked out the GB Online Instagram account?
We are starting a new cycle of the GB3 Curriculum week 1 in the guard position. In this week's lesson, Prof. Flavio shows how we can get the match to the ground by pulling guard and retaining our grip advantage.
A key concept behind this guard pull is that Prof. Flavio wants to conceal his intention to pull guard (feinting that he might be looking for a takedown) to key his opponent off guard (no pun intended)

Tip: Note how Prof. Flavio keeps the opponent guessing with the fake level change to double leg so he can arrive in guard without surrendering 2 points for the takedown.
