I received your "Spring Camp 2006" disk 1, for the guard surfing drill. I have drilled your instruction and I liked it a lot; however, what I missed on the DVD is your "Must have basics steps to pass the guard" you mention a few on the DVD but it isn't like your SBG3 lists. Can you list them. I think it was something like:
Control the legs and hip,Posture etc...
thanks in advance.
Until Matt sees this, it may be:
- Open the guard
- Control the legs
- Control the hip
- Lock in the upper body
- Land the hips
I am not sure exactly what you are referencing. But Mike just posted the 5 point passing game. That is the core of what I teach brand new people, and it is the formula all guard passes follow. There are also the inside the closed guard drills we work, safety position, base & posture to combat base.
My progression usually works like this. .
1-Safety position drill
2- Base & posture drill (isolating both, then combining)
3- Combine to combat base drill (done very frequently)
4- Five point passing game (using some fundamental passes to illustrate the concept)
5- Guard surfing (core passing drill for my athletes)
That is the core of my fundamental passing curriculum.
That is exactly what I was looking for,the 5 point passing game. Thanks Mat and Mike.
