Since your very first day on the mats, you saw more experienced people surrounding you in the training room just chillin’ on their back, looking super stoic, playing open guards while smoothly picking and choosing their grips from sleeves to collars, from collars to pants in every combination imaginable, and there you are, trying to adapt, but it’s not as easy as it looks right?
Playing open guard is tricky even for the most experienced in the room. Jiu Jitsu is very broad. Even if you’ve been on the mats for years, having a crafty open guard isn’t guaranteed. Yes, you’ve been there, done that… but I have just one question for you. Is your guard just as sharp as Liera’s?
Michael Liera Jr. has been making a name for himself as being a technician and his competition results speak for themselves. His crafty guard and intelligent take on jiu jitsu are what earned him multiple IBJJF Worlds, Pan Ams, European titles, and much, much more.
Inside this course, Michael gives you full access to his jiu jitsu mind. Work your way through the chapters and get a deep understanding of how to dominate any opponent using double sleeve grips, shallow lasso with collar grip, and Michael’s unique x-guard. If you ever had the honor of sharing the mats with Michael, you should have a good idea of how much this course will boost not just your guard, but your jiu jitsu also.
If you ever had the honor of sharing the mats with Michael, you should have a good idea of how much this course will boost not just your guard, but your approach to jiu jitsu also. If you haven’t, we invite you to learn from one of the brightest jiu jitsu minds out there. Michael is a great competitor, a great instructor, and overall, a great person.
Just wanted to say thank you to Michael Liera Jr and to Jiu Jitsu X for the awesome The Guardian course. I’ve purchased other courses and DVD’s in the past and Professor Michael’s approach was just what I needed. My open guard, generally, was just not clicking, and within 1 or 2 of the videos I could feel stuff clicking into place. The links between the different guards that Professor Michael lays out and the 3 pillars of a decent guard he discussed are opening things up for me. Thank you!
