How To Stop Someone From Passing Your Guard

 

One of the most difficult skills for the white belt to develop is keeping someone from passing your guard. Passing the guard can be done with technique at the higher levels, but in a match between white belts, sometimes guard passing is easily accomplished with size and strength. Retaining your guard and not letting anyone pass it is a skill that requires finesse, precision and timing.

 

Here are some of the best video tutorials that I have found that will help the new BJJ player keep their opponents from passing the guard. The first video is a brand new one from Firas Zahabi, coach of legendary MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre.

8 New Sports Proposed For The 2020 Olympics, Why Not Jiu Jitsu?

 

Baseball and softball remain on course to get back into the Olympics. Squash, karate, surfing and four other sports are in contention to get into the games for the first time.

 

The International Olympic Committee will make a final decision on which sport or sports will be added in August 2016, when it meets ahead of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro (of all places).

 

The sports that applied but failed to make the cut were: air sports, American football, bowls, bridge, chess, dance sport, floorball, flying disc, korfball, netball, orienteering, polo, racquetball, sumo, tug of war, underwater sports, waterski and wakeboard.

 

No one even applied to have Jiu Jitsu added to the games! In this day and age?! I could possibly swallow BJJ failing to make the cut, but it is hard to fathom how there is no nomination. Is it because I am biased into thinking that our sport is bigger than it is because I eat, breathe and live it?

 

Has anyone ever tried to get our sport into the Olympics before that I am unaware of? Would being in the Olympics be good or bad for our sport?

 

Hopefully it works out for the korfballers and the tug of war enthusiasts.
