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.
