The next step in attaining an excellent guard involves also attacks and reversals. Carlos Machado will show you a crucial guard defense drill followed by several simple and yet effective strategies to accomplish armlocks. The student will be equipped not only to stop powerful guard passes, but also to respond with an aggressive game that will put your opponent on notice from the start. Among some of the techniques described in this session are:
* Tips on how to pass and defend using the Knee ride strategy
* Different ways to twist the arm in an armlock
* Several armbar set ups from the guard
* Preventing the stacking
* The Russian flip over
One thing that has always amazed me about the Machado's approach in Jiu Jitsu is the way that isolate an opponents actions with attacking while defending. This DVD is awesome for many reasons but what will really jump out to you is the way Carlos controls his opponent in the open guard while pushing and pulling it's simply amamzing. WILL DEFINATLY GET YOUR GAME UP!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Twenty stars out of five!!! One of the best if not the best BJJ instructional I've seen. Carlos's a living statement about the technical proficiency of his family and when it comes to explain and demonstrate the subtleties of the techniques you can clearly see he's a very gifted player. A bit pricey though, but if you can afford to buy it, you won't regret it. Highly recommended.
