About the instructors

Who is Gannon Lang?

 Gannon is a young jiu jitsu competitor/coach from Fredericksburg, Virginia. His origins with jiujitsu began in 2014 at Dárcio Lira JiuJitsu.  Gannon had a pretty “normal” childhood and upbringing, playing soccer, getting good grades in school and going to college. At the same time as attending college, he was attempting to pursue a career in jiu jitsu. That was no easy task. He often found his college classes interfered with his training, and he was becoming increasingly unhappy with the situation.  In 2017, Gannon decided to go with his gut, and pursue the career that made him happy, jiu jitsu. He dropped out of college and immersed himself in training & competing. He would travel every day to  Beta Academy in Washington DC, to train with Nakapan Phungephorn. It was a 2hr commute every day.   In 2020 he opened his own academy, Nexus, as a purple belt. He says it was because he was tired of driving 2 hrs to dc every day, and he wanted to increase the popularity of jiu jitsu in his hometown.  Shortly after, he won the raffle for international lapel day Keenan Cornelius was running, and was flown out to Legion AJJ for a week of training. During which he filmed his first instructional with JiuJitsuX (Enter the Tomb). After his short stay at Legion, he was invited to come back to stay permanently.  That type of invitation is a young grapplers dream, inevitably, he accepted. He returned to Virginia for a short time before returning to San Diego. During which he trained under Colton Smith at Enlisted Nine, in Stafford Virginia.   Gannon is currently still training and instructing out of Legion AJJ. Planning to some day return back home to Virginia and re-open his own academy, as a Legion AJJ affiliate.

I have always preferred knee on achilles with a horse collar grip when experimenting with back control. I felt like this course did a good job structuring that position and also added in other useful topics for someone who is interested in taking the back as a whole. I don't think this course is meant to give an in depth advance study, and it is not for novices. I find it appropriately valued and labeled as intermediate. If you lack pathways to take the back, this course is for you.
