The Cross Guard DVD by Mauricio Tinguinha Mariano
A revolutionary new style of guard designed to effectively control and submit your opponent.
Part 2 - Countering the Spider Guard
The first DVD to the Open Guard Series included passing the Spider Guard; the techniques covered in this section are the counters to those Spider Guard passes.
Mauricio "Tinguinha" Mariano is known worldwide for his dynamic open guard skills and techniques. In his latest DVD - the second in the Open Guard Series, Mauricio covers two sections: THE CROSS GUARD - a revolutionary new style of guard designed to effectively control and submit your opponent, & COUNTERING THE SPIDER GUARD PASS - provides counters to the techniques Mauricio demonstrated in the first DVD of the Ultimate Open Guard Series, THE SPIDER GUARD. With over two hours of action-packed content, consisting of 34 exciting techniques, this DVD is a must for anyone looking to improve their game. Mauricio now owns and operates the Gracie Barra Academy in Anaheim, California. Now you can learn the highly effective techniques he teaches in his academy everyday.
As usual, Tinguinha teaches well in this DVD. You get plenty of details, and there are some fun drills to do with a partner, or even by yourself on a wall. I do think it would have made more sense to keep the spider guard stuff on the spider guard DVD.
