Fall upon me and meet your doom
Excellent in going over the choosing which guard to play and how to move from it to other movements. An excellent blueprint one can take to start thinking of their own unique application.

I wanted to improve my defense and this course is great for that. Each lesson provided simple concepts or movements that not only keep you from getting passed but also put you back in neutral/offensive positions.
