Be honest with us… Do you feel like you’re a bit behind the “modern” game in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? If so, then you’re probably not playing the Z Guard game, either.
But hear us out – you’re missing out on a lot. There are so many options from the Z Guard that you might find that it fits your game perfectly.
The use of half guard and all of its variations is all the rage right now. More and more jiu jitsu practitioners are following the lead of Roberto “Gordo” Correa who was the first well-known competitor who began to popularize the half guard position in the 90’s. What had been thought of as a last ditch ‘Hail Mary’ to prevent the guard pass, began being utilized and developed as a position in and of itself. The irony is that Gordo’s entire use of the position began because of a knee injury that prevented him from playing other types of guard.
Did you know that there are many great options from combining Lasso and Z Guard? Yes – and you should definitely give this combination a shot!
