No Gi Closed Guard Tutorial

Gordon Ryan is one of the most dominate No Gi grapplers competing today. Trained by master coach John Danaher, his closed guard is rock solid.

Here he shows how you can build a strong closed guard in No Gi Jiu Jitsu without any lapels or sleeves to grip. Gordon explains his technique of making micro adjustments in position to go from a neutral position to one where you have a slight advantage.
