I-Method (Shown throughout the set by example.)

Safety Position, Posture, and Combat Base (Building a safe foundation to work from.)

Opening the Guard (The basic dos and donts of gi and no gi.)

The Pit Stop from the high climb to arm bar, triangle and omo plata. (Active working position from the high climb that allows for both rest and aggressive attackes.)

The 2 on 1 Guard Pass (A seemingly unorthodox but high percentage pass that immediately gives you several options to take.)

The NHB Guard (Working strategy of the A.P.E. guard in addressing strikes.)

Climbing Guard (Using the high guard to set up submissions based on also controlling your opponent and keeping them trapped at the same time.)

Assuring the Arm Bar (Key methods to attain, and counter arm bar counters to assure your submission.)

Countering the Kimura (Basic counters to one of the most high percentage submissions in both gi and no gi games.)

Holding Top Position (Fundamental Five of attaining, maintaining and transitioning while holding top.)

Crushing Game (All about creating the necessary pressures to allow for submissions to happen and become available to you. A very motivational game and approach to say the least.)

Pomitions (Keeping tight and securing submissions in a way that does not compromise position. Position and Submission as one.)

Floating Game (Imagine surfing on a stronger and larger opponent and only coming in for a landing between his efforts or ready made submissions. The floating game relies on balance and timing and creates submissions less through pressure but more so on and with motion.)

Tempo / Slow Rolling & Matches (Technical Integrations done as warm ups, drilling methods, and competitive exercises. Plenty here to play over and over and catch glimpses of tactics and game styles.)
