This is your chance to learn from 3-Time ADCC Champion Gordon Ryan as he shares all his secrets around escaping turtle and front headlocks

  • Gordon is one of the most detailed and thorough teachers in grappling, with incredible systematic attention to detail.
  • Use peak outs, 4 points, sitting to half guard, and more to get away from front.
  • Roll to guard and escape from turtle with Gordon’s tips for staying safe and preventing hooks so you can get away from their control while still staying safe from submission threats.
  • These are the same systems that Gordon uses to build his defensive skills as a foundation for his entire game.
