Passing a good knee shield can be difficult. There’s a reason it’s called the knee SHIELD. The ones who use it, use it well as the modern Vikings and shield maidens of guard play. Trying to smash the knee shield can feel like pushing through a literal brick wall with zero tools for help.

Pinpoint Passing contains the tools you need to decipher the knee shield and more… In this course, Gianni shows you techniques he’s been working on for years. Techniques that have been drilled daily and competition tested.

There is only one location we’re trying to get to… with the pinpoint directly located on the guard pass. However, the work doesn’t stop there. Securing the position is just as important. Gianni includes how to stabilize the hips and control your opponent so that you can lock in the 3 points and guarantee an arm raised at the end of the match.

Target Audience

  • For people who want to skyrocket their guard passing technique
  • For those who have trouble passing the knee shield
  • For the grappler who doesn't feel safe on top

Lots of great details. Easy system to start using after the very first viewing.

Very cool passing system.

Killer details on how to switch up between pressure and mobility.

This course is one of the hidden gems on JJX. Gianni creates a great system of pinning/tripod passing and knee shield passing. I've even taught some of his knee shield passing in my Jiu Jitsu class. I hope to see more courses from Gianni in the future, he's a fantastic instructor.

Gianni is the man.

Another great course about passing guard. Full of details and real life situations !
