The BJJ Guard By Olivier Michailesco

Discover a unique collection dedicated to the Brazilian martial art. Each master and expert detail their specialty through a series of instructional videos, shot on a black ground and a black background for optimum visibility of all movements.

This video covers advanced techniques. The "firefighter guard" is a made-up term (for this video) only to define a mixed position between the butterfly position, the half guard, a "De la riva" hooking the leg inside, and also for some, a "single leg” work.

Often working in this position, it seemed fun to call it this way because working this position is akin to playing with fire. I propose a multi-directional work with different grips adapted to this guard, as well as some techniques when the opponent manages to pass your guard.

In memory of my teacher and friend Master Christian Derval.
