Breaking the Rules

“You don’t put your hand in the collar when you’re inside their guard!”

How many times have you been told this? How many times have you told this to someone?
As with most rules, there comes a time to intelligently break them.

While the methods taught in this instructional set follow concepts of traditional Guard Passing, the techniques are uncommon (and uncomfortable) enough to catch even the most experienced players off guard.
