Vol 2: Compensating for Strength (2 hours, 24 minutes)

Not all guard positions keep you safe or are effective when you've facing someone who is much larger and heavier than you. Here Emily shares her favorite guard positions that work well against bigger people, and breaks them down so you'll be able to keep good position and successfully defend guard passing attempts. Plus she teaches you which sweeps work against ALL sizes of opponents, not just ones your own size.

In part two Emily takes you through her bread and butter guard passes that she uses again and again when facing larger opponents. Don't let guard passing turn into a battle of strength; use speed, leverage and timing instead! Emily teaches you the secrets of 'ganging up' on your opponent by using your whole body to dominate ONE of his limbs. Once you isolate a limb you can then use it to get past their guard and into a good position where you can dominate the rest of the fight.
