In this revolutionary video production from Paladin Press, best-selling author and groundfighting expert Mark Hatmaker explodes the common myth that the guard, also known as the bottom scissors, is a position of strength and shows you how to get from the guard to the top game. First, Hatmaker teaches why you always want to be on top of your opponent so that your strikes have greater force and your submissions are more likely to succeed. From there, he gives you more than a hundred different techniques to get out of the guard position and turn the tables on your opponent, putting you in the top game and your opponent at a significant disadvantage. Hatmaker's instruction runs the gamut, from low sweeps to transition sweeps to high sweeps, giving you enough material to keep your grappling game on top. For information purposes only.
Mark Hatmaker is a lifelong student of the martial arts with more than 24 years of experience in Western boxing, wrestling, and no-holds-barred fighting.
