THE FIRST COMPONENT OF THE STUDY FOCUSES ON THE FOUNDATIONAL LEVEL: LEGWORK & MOBILITY. INCREASING COORDINATION AND BALANCE HAS A POSITIVE COMPOUND EFFECT ON AN ATHLETE’S ABILITY TO MOVE ON TOP. IT REDUCES REACTION TIME, MAKES TRANSITIONS MORE EFFICIENT AND PRECISE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY INCREASES CONFIDENCE.

DYNAMIC GUARD PASSING MOVEMENTS: LONGSTEP, LEG WEAVE, LEG TRAP, LEG DRAG, SHIN SLICE, WINDSHIELD WIPER, TOPSPIN & OPENING THE KNEE

THE SLOWER, MORE TRADITIONAL STYLE OF PASSING ON THE KNEES HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH THE FAST PACED AND FREE MOVING STYLE OF TODAY THAT PASSES WHILE STANDING

THE SECOND COMPONENT BUILDS ON THE FOUNDATION AS WE BEGIN TO COMBINE TECHNIQUES. BEING ABLE TO SEQUENCE TECHNIQUES TOGETHER ALLOWS THE GUARD PASSER TO STRATEGICALLY BREAK THE OPPONENT’S GUARD AND REMAIN OFFENSIVE REGARDLESS OF THE OPPONENT’S REACTION.

BEING ABLE TO COMBINE TECHNIQUES AND SEQUENCE THEM TOGETHER IS ESSENTIAL TO BEING A SUCCESSFUL GUARD PASSER. OFTEN TIMES IT’S THE DEFINING FACTOR IN WHETHER A GOOD ATTACK IS ABLE TO TRANSLATE INTO A COMPLETED GUARD PASS OR NOT.

THE THIRD AND FINAL COMPONENT IN THIS GUARD PASS STUDY SPOTLIGHTS ATTACKING BOTH SIDES. IT COMPLEMENTS THE PREVIOUS COMPONENT OF COMBINING TECHNIQUES AND UNLOCKS MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE GUARD PASSER TO ACHIEVE A DOMINANT POSITION.
