Passing With A Side (Of) Smash

5.00(3 Ratings)


Do You Want To Smash Pass But It Feels Like You Weigh Only Two Pounds? Pressure passing has great benefits, to name a couple, you’re less likely to get tired by passing with pressure than going bat s*&t crazy on torreandos, long steps, and other spazzy movements we all tried as white belts. To add more to it, there is nothing more satisfying than slowly smashing through someone’s guard and knowing they can’t do absolutely anything to stop you. Now, if you could only figure out how to properly smash pass right?

DCD’s Got You! Are you a brand new white belt or a black belt that’s used miles of finger tape? Come on in! From the beginning of this course, Conner breaks down his smash passing philosophy. This is where you will learn about how your opponent’s body works, and how you can use these 3 pressure passes to pass an intelligent guard. That’s right, Conner didn’t spend about 100 hours on this course to teach you how to pass a blue belt’s guard, his goal with this course is simple… you passing high-level black belt guards.

Smash Passing X3. Inside this course, Conner will teach you everything he knows about the over-under, the over over, and the side smash. You will learn why they work, how to apply them successfully, and then how to get to any of the 3 from any guard you might find yourself in. We guarantee you’ll discover some entries and special PED’s (Passing Enhancing Details) you’ve never seen before.

Target Audience

  • People who struggle to pass their opponents' guard
  • Those who are unable to get close to their opponent when passing guard
  • For those who want to triple their weight and pressure when passing

Highly recommend this course! DC once again breaks down a topic of Jiu Jitsu to a science and then brings it back around full circle to help it all click. DC covers the three pressure passes, why they are so effective, how to combine them, how to trouble shoot the most common reactions/defenses you will encounter, and then has a "drill" section to help the viewer hammer out the muscle memory. His SLX course is very similar as well.

I have two other pressure passing courses from the site and a bunch of others from other BJJ lesson sites. DC’s course provides information that is for sure unique. You will learn some of the same positions that are known and popular like the over under. You will also see how you can use another similar position, the over over pass, which I’ve never seen described in detail before now. I think DC’s idea to explain the physiology of passing is also important and rarely discussed. That is information you can start to consider with other passes in the game. I’m a happy customer!

Highly recommend for anyone interested in pressure passing. DC breaks down the 3 passes so you fundamentally understand why they work and what adjustments you can make for common counters. He also breaks down how to enter the positions from commonly seen guards so you understand that you can always drive your passing in the same direction. This leads to more reps on the pass you are strongest at which is in your favor on the mats!
