Posture is one of the first and most confusing elements that the BJJ beginner will face. Inevitably the first time you put a beginner in your closed guard they will raise their butt way up of of their heels and almost tip themselves over.
This video is so important for white belts because it gives the fundamental answers to this seemingly awkward position.
“I have seen the flaws in humanity. Stepping into someones guard and letting them establish grips is the most heinous by far. Mold yourself into the image of the perfect grappler and pray to the Jiu-Jitsu Gods for forgiveness and maybe they will have mercy on your pitiful soul. Sign up to the Church of Guard at https://keenanonline.com/ and repent.” – Keenan Cornelius (He cray 🤣)
It took me quite a while into being a white belt to realize the importance of grips, I would just let my opponent have any grips they want and am up getting wept or choked. Then while watching high level grapplers roll, I realized that one guy REALLY wanted grips while the other guy REALLY didn’t want him to have them.
That being said this video from a Judo Olympian sheds light on how to get the job done.

Here are 5 of my personal favorite CHAIN Takedowns! Takedowns can be like a chess game where you can plan two to three steps ahead. When you attempt a takedown, your opponent will defend, when he does, he may be opening himself up for another takedown. So you want to attack in combinations (AKA chain-takedowns) with different angles and weapons!
