Advanced Back Attacks

This week Gracie Barra looks at more advanced techniques from the back position. Definitely not for beginners!

Here are 5 videos by GB instructors on how to get to the back mount and how to attack from there.

First, let’s see some methods of catching the back position. More advanced belts tend to get to the back position immediately after a guard pass.
