Keenan shows the in’s and out’s of how to safely go from standing to on your back in order to start playing guard, as well as how to prepare for someone jumping closed guard on you. and why that’s not the safest thing to do in training
Keenan demonstrates how you can force someone to play half guard against you, and then shows how to advance the position even further to get to arguably one of the most uncomfortable positions in jiu-jitsu: smash half.
Now that you’re in the smash half position, Keenan shows you how to maximize and optimize your shoulder pressure and take it to the next level by making your opponent so uncomfortable they basically give you the guard pass.
So you’ve successfully stopped all incoming chokes and hooks from the turtle. Now what? Now you get the heck out of there! Learn how to reverse the position and unwind the seatbelt control so you stop being on the defensive and can start being on the offensive.
Now you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. As common with the theme of Keenan Online, Keenan is going to demonstrate a more effective but clashing ideology with what is commonly taught on how to escape the side control position, this time by turning away and giving up the back.
