Effective Guard Passes

Marcello C. Monteiro teaches his series of Effective Guard Passes. He shows how to pass all types of guard including counters for the De La Riva guard, half-guard, butterfly guard, and spider guard. These techniques are sure to improve your top game and get you passing more consistently.

Marcello demonstrates these techniques in the clear, logical manner that he is known for as an instructor.

"There is only one certain way to learn and improve your skills, and that is through quality instruction."
