For Cadeirinha & Beyond, Professor Noonan has spent countless hours drilling and putting his techniques into practice, to fine-tune this system and make sure that every technique is real-world applicable. The beauty of it is: although this is a common position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, very few people have really delved deep down and mastered the Cadeirinha and its variations, until now!

That is exactly what this course is all about; taking a single position and finding all of the tiny nuances and options for every step your opponent takes. This comprehensive instructional set is broken into 3 major positions: The Cadeirinha, The Modified Waiter, and The Jack. Each section will give you a step-by-step breakdown of the how, when and why to use each technique. So you can be sure that these techniques will work seamlessly with your game!
