Micro Adjustments Course





“We’ll be breaking down many of the little tweaks and tricks

that can increase the devastation you unleash on the mat.”

The difference between winning and losing a position often comes down to inches.

And if you want the rare ability to win those little micro battles “at will” in many different situations, then this course will show you how.

“Micro Adjustments” is an online course featuring a mixture of clear and concise instruction on small technical tweaks and analysis of why positions were won and lost in matches. Simplicity is the goal, and you’ll see exactly how and why I modify things. In fact, there’s no way that you’ll walk away without a deeper understanding of the principles of the game.

Each week, I’ll be adding a new lesson. And the focus will just be on highlighting one small micro adjustment that makes a significant difference.

What that means is that you have to show up weekly. If you can’t do that, this course is not for you. It’s not something that you can just gouge on in one sitting and then forget about. It’s going to be an ongoing learning experience.

If that’s something you’re interested in, here’s a small taste of what you’ll learn inside:

A small adjustment to the armbar finish position that will kill stacks in their tracks. (I’ve harped on this quite a bit, and I’ve even showed it before in other videos, but it can’t be reinforced enough.)

One of the best ways to expose the neck to the rear naked choke while at the same time threatening an one arm kimura from the back. (This small adjustment to grip placement makes difference between almost getting wrist locked and completely dominating the situation.)

A small little shift that makes slipping through an opponent’s death grip on quarter guard effortless. (It’s just utterly ridiculous how easy it is do to even the best guys.)

How to make someone who drops their chin to defend the rear naked choke feel like an idiot. (Just a small hand adjustment will slice through that defense like butter.)

What to do when an opponent beats you on the angle and starts to slip out of your back control. (I learned this counter when I was a blue belt, and it has served me soooo well since then.)

The specific way you have to move to kill the over under butterfly sweep. (When done right, it gives an immediate opportunity to mount as well.)

A stupid simple way to escape from S mount. (It’s one of those things that I wish I had learned day one but it took me years.)

One of the easiest ways to destroy your opponent’s hope of escaping your side control, and an submission you can hit as well. (There are some very important principles in this lesson, if you’re savvy enough to pay attention.)

How to absolutely slaughter the kneecut early with something I sometimes call the red headed stepchild of the lockdown. (It resets the position right away, and there is also an immediate opportunity for attack.)

The backstep variation that one of the most notable figures in black belt competition uses to kill the underhook half guard. (In fact, it even slaughters one of my best backstep counters.)

How I finish the darce choke now with almost no effort at all. (This is a small tweak but it makes a massive difference.)

What to do when someone grabs your belt or pants from within your closed guard. (There is a basic sweep that works surprisingly well in that specific situation.)

A small little angle adjustment with the feet that makes a whole lot of difference in the X Pass. (I learned this from Abmar Barbosa many moons ago, and it blew my mind with its simplicity.)

How to easily kill the elbow escape from mount with just one little foot movement. (This is one of my true wicked ways, and I’ve been terrorizing people with it for years.)

An IBJJF legal ankle lock for 50/50 that you can unleash on the unsuspecting. (I’ve caught so many people with it.)

…and far more lessons are on the way.  The course will be updated at a regular pace with new little sneaky tricks and adjustments.

Be warned though.

There are only 15 lessons in the course at any one time. Every week on Sunday, I add a new lesson and delete the oldest one. The reason behind that is that I never want you to get so overwhelmed by content that you don’t learn anything at all. Instead, I want you to take it slow and truly explore the principles and strategies behind this small adjustments to the game.

It’ll be an ongoing education in the fine details. And I’ll be breaking things down just like I did with the following lesson on the loop choke:
