Professor Flavio’s Useful Tips To Help Master The 50/50 Guard


Some Useful Tips To Help You Master The 50/50 Game

Last Wednesday, we had our first 50/50 Guard Training class.  This was a huge success!  Professor Flavio explained the concept of the 50/50 game: Leg Position, Hip Position, Grips and Goals.  Beyond teaching the steps that build a technique, Professor Flavio wanted to engage the students minds on the intricacies of such an interesting part of Jiu-Jitsu.

Moving forward from the first 50/50 Guard Training class, Professor Flavio will work on how to explore alternative grips on arms and legs that will lead to many variations of sweeps, submissions and of course, spend a good time studying the broad range of escapes from the 50/50 Guard Training.  For the next 3 weeks, we encourage you to spend a lot of time in our study hall trainings on the 50/50 Game.

The next classes are scheduled for

  • July 24th: Sweeps and Reversals from the 50/50 Guard
  • July 31st: Submissions from the 50/50 Guard
  • August 7th: Getting in and getting out of the 50/50 Guard

To help you, here is a video with the 3 moves we saw on the first class: Taking the Back from 50/50, Straight Foot Lock from 50/50 and Escape from the 50/50.
