I’m sure that we’ve all been in the same situation before where we learn a new technique and something isn’t clicking, no matter how hard we try to focus on the details we often overlook. With tons of mat time and research, there is still something that isn’t making sense. At a stand-still, you’re ready to pass up on learning that technique and move forward.
However, times are changing thanks to the iGrapple Mobile app.
Recently released, the iGrapple is a fantastic tool that every single one of us Brazilian Jiu Jitsu players can use in order to take the next step forward in our skill development.
If you go back to the first paragraph and think to yourself, “Hey, that’s me!” when it comes to learning new techniques, then you’re in luck because the iGrapple is here to eliminate any issue that you may face in learning.
With a very classroom-like approach to grappling, the app does a fantastic job of breaking everything down so that even the most basic white belts out there can soak up the moves and implement them in a heartbeat!
bI was first introduced to 1-Leg X-Guard by Emily Kwok in her How To Defeat Bigger, Stronger Opponents DVD set. I played around with it and even though I pulled mount more often than not I didn’t give up. I kept working on it, asked questions and researched on my own. Fast forward almost a year and this is my go to attack when my opponents stands or posts his leg.
A few months ago we were approached by MGinACTION about collaborating and this article is the result. What you’ll find below is a downloadable PDF (and graphics file) that shows you my notes on all the instructional videos in MGinACTION that cover the 1-leg X-Guard. What you’ll also find is an interactive map that has links directly to the videos in MGinACTION so that you can watch the videos that were just mapped out.

“I make it a point to try to help out any of my users that ask me to- even going so far as to work the corner of one of my users that I never met before at a competition. I don't want people to memorize a bunch of random techniques that they throw out in a desperate attack; but rather I want people to learn a logical grappling system so that they can produce repeatable results on the mat.”
Created in 2008, the site started as a mechanism tool to assist an instructor’s students with some troubleshooting issues they were having with learning techniques taught during class. Hoping to help his students excel the instructor (Richard Whirley) would record countless hours of videos to assist his students with retaining the information that was taught in class. As time progressed, this simple tool to assist his students would eventually reach thousands of practitioners on Youtube thus turning it into the popular franchise it is today.
