5x World Champ Bernardo Faria: 3 Ways To Avoid Getting Your Guard Passed

Guest post by 5x BJJ World Champion Bernardo Faria, who is known for his half guard. He achieved a phenomenal double gold medals in the BJJ Mundials in 2015. Be sure to check out Bernardo’s new DVD instructional series on the Faria Guard, The Z Guard, escapes and pressure passing.

 

 In the video below, I’m sharing with you, all my concepts about Guard Retention, and also one of my favorite ways to avoid getting the guard passed.

   Many times I see the students trying to turn on the knees, going to the turtle to prevent the side control, but I like to use a different way, that it is kind of similar to it.

Instead of turning completely on the knees, I turn without stopping in the turtle, it is pretty simple and has worked for me thousand of times. (It is the last technique in the video below.)

 

So you want to play a simple and effective half guard? Well, get your hands on arguably the best half guard player ever, Bernardo Faria’s DVD set, “Battle Tested Half Guard.”  Bernardo is infamous for his simple, effective, and tenacious half guard.  He has a game that is suitable for anybody at any age, weight, gender, or fitness level!
