Rob Biernacki, of Back Attacks fame, taught a guard passing seminar at Gracie Barra Kirkland recently and they were kind enough to put the whole thing on YouTube. It’s a really nice seminar as it starts with one of the most common guards – sitting guard – then progresses from there. I really like the concept of diagonal control when guard passing.

If you want to follow all of it he progresses to dealing with De La Riva and other guards your opponent might throw at you.

There are 9 parts to this seminar. Part 1:
