The wrapped-arm guard

Controlling the distance to your opponent's body, as well as their movement. Breaking the passer's posture. Achieving firms grips on their jacket. Opening holes for multiple types of attack. These are some of the winningest strategies adopted by BJJ's elite guard players. They are all contained in the wrapped-arm guard, a system Leo Tunico is an expert in.

Tunico reveals a simple, efficient way to breaks grips and use your arm to wrap your opponent's arm, also grabbing their cross collar. Note that when you achieve this control, a menu of attack options opens up.

Among them are the cross choke, the hook sweep, the arm drag that leads to the back, and the triangle -- moves that will revolutionize your guard game (open and closed) and which you will learn in detail, from the best angles.

These are techniques for use in training, competition and self-defense scenarios. Note how common it is in MMA bouts for a guard-playing fighter to seek control over their opponent's arm to shorten the distance and control their movement, and then start attacking.

Watch these videos over and over, create your own double and triple attacks, and then go try it out on unsuspecting teammates. Oss!
