Course Description

This course provides a brief overview of each of the open guards available to BJJ players ready to branch out from closed guard. Open guards are dynamic, transitional positions, and you must be able to fluidly move from one to another, and from closed guard to each of them. Opening your guard is the first step toward completing a sweep, and these basic techniques will get you started.
