Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Techniques & Tactics volume:2 Passing the Guard , featuring Master Marcus Vinicius Di Lucia , is one of the Techniques & Tactics dvd series. Master Di Lucia owner and head instructor at Beverly Hills Jiu Jitsu Club in Beverly Hills, California , is a 4th degree black belt in Jiu Jitsu under Grand Master Fransisco Mansur.
The guard passes are very informative and detailed with explanations on how to pass when a sweep is attempted. How to pass the closed guard , how to pass the open guard among other passes. Passing the guard is one of the most important aspects in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because when the guard is applied by your opponent, you can’t advance your position or attempt any submissions when in the guard whether open or closed. In competition you will not gain points if you don’t advance and being able to pass the guard to improve is very important.
Master Di Lucia explains, with detail , when to stack, when to pass or when to advance. He applies guard passes with the most efficient and effective techniques available in Jiu Jitsu. Being that Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on efficiency and minimal energy spent, this dvd is sure to help improve your ground game. If you are already proficient on guard passing , this dvd may help to add more guard passes to your game thus increasing your chances of passing the guard.
Master Di Lucia has a series of Jiu Jitsu dvd’s, Techniques & Tactics , volume :2 is the one i have viewed and can comment though i will be purchasing his other dvd series in the future because of the simplistic layout of the dvd.
Overall i’d recommend this dvd to any of my teammates.
