The Spider Guard is one of the most important positions of modern BJJ.

Using your hooks and grips to create pressure makes it incredibly difficult for someone to pass your guard, and you can use your control to launch a huge assortment of powerful sweeps and attacks to keep your opponents on the run.

The Spider Guard is the favourite tool of many BJJ champions and top competitors including Cobrinha, Keenan Cornelius, Tinguinha, Draculino, Romulo Barral, Marcelino Freitas, Michael Langhi and Leandro Lo.

Now for the first time, in the Grapplearts Spider Guard Masterclass 5 volume series of apps, you can have an exact blueprint for this essential BJJ position.

Your instructors are BJJ black belts Elliott Bayev and Stephan Kesting, known for their friendly and informative teaching styles. Their approach to the Spider Guard will make it easy for you to learn and absorb the material, and then unleash it on your training partners and opponents in competition.
