New Release: Spider Guard Masterclass

Stephan Kesting and Grapplearts.com have just released a brand new instructional called Spider Guard Masterclass.

This 5 volume instructional covers every aspect of the Spider Guard, from setting up your initial grips, to sweeping and submitting your opponent, to shutting down his guard pass attempts.

Here is what is in each of the 5 volumes…

DVD 1 – Understanding Spider Guard

Volume 1 of Spider Guard Masterclass goes into detail about the exact grips, techniques and drills you need to create pressure and control your opponent.  This will give you a rock solid foundation for every one of the Spider Guard variations we’ll be covering later in the set.

In addition you’ll also get detailed breakdowns of the ‘heavy hitter’ submissions in the Spider Guard – the omoplata and triangle attacks – including how to shut down and/or bypass the most common counters and escapes for these submissions.  With this material you’ll be able to keep on attacking your opponent no matter how he tries to defend.
