This week Gracie Barra Techniques brings you some videos on the 50/50 Guard which is used by many of the top level competitors in both gi and no-gi competition. Prof Flavios Almeida teaches us a series of techniques that all come from the same initial starting 50/50 position.
As your opponent counters one of your techniques, they create an opportunity for you to attack with another technique. Subscribe to the Gracie Barra YouTube channel to be notified of new video techniques.
