Hi guys

while working on the neutralising guard techniques i have slipped up a few times and been caught behind the head and lost posture ,just wondered if you had any tips for clearing the grip from behind the head when working with a strong opponent .

all the best paul.

Paul,  I’m searching through the videos right now to try and find a reference to that.  The answer to your question is, Yes! We do have a method for clearing the head from behind the head while working with a strong opponent.

 

I’m sitting here shaking my head because I simply cannot believe that we have not put up a video covering this, or didn’t include it as an aspect of a different video.

 

Rest assured, if I can’t find it in our library, we’ll shoot one asap and post it in the Guard Neutralization Series… where it should be.

Thanks coach i knew you would have the answer ! im usually reduced to digging my thumb into the kyusho point at his elbow to loosen the grip or pummeling his ribs with short punches until he gets fed up with it .

all the best Paul .

Crap!  I wanted to shoot this tonight but time and other obligations did not allow for it.  Kiser and I will be training with Erik Paulson all weekend, so my goal is by next week to have this shot and to append it to the Guard Neutralization series by the end of next week.

Sorry for the delay.  I just updated the Neutralizing The Guard Series with Regaining Posture In the Guard.

thanks for the update ,do you think this would adapt to clearing the kind of grip where the other guy has an overhook on one arm with his other across the back of your neck pulling your head down ? i know you should not end up in such a bad position but as they say shit happens , even monkeys fall out of tree s !!

all the best paul.

Yes definitely, the procedure would be identical.  It would just be a little easier since a simple grip on your neck and over hook aren’t near as secure.

Ok ,thanks again .

I have to say the whole” neutralizing the guard series ” has been one of the most usefull ,practical things i have learned for ages ,and not too complicated for my old brain to take in either ! in particular the” zero reference point ” i was sparring  with a  guy who has a good bjj background and he tried to pull a pretty standard kimura while in his guard ,my usual response would have been the most common bjj counter ,to reach around and climb into a rear mount . with the “zero reference” in mind as he reached around to catch his wrist i just countered with a short hook to his exposed ribs causing him to loose his grip and allowing me to pass guard and of course with the option to punch his exposed jaw,  its so simple, why have i never thought of that before !! joking aside i know its not suitable for a lot of grappling type contest and within those rules i would probably loose to an average bjj student or wrestler but as that is not an arena i choose to enter i dont care ! Sorry to bore you with all this as its basic knowledge to you guys but its taken me a long time to find this stuff and im like a kid with a new toy !  

Cheers Paul .
