Basic Jiu Jitsu Curriculum – Lesson 11b – The Guard Get Up

The Guard Get Up Overview: You are on your back in a fight... who needs the guard get up? Women need to be able to get away. Law Enforcement needs to be able to get off their back. Or anybody, when things get rough (multiple attackers or things are just not going well). In all of these cases you need to be able to get back to your feet. You know how to block punches and how to submit, but for whatever reason you want to get out of here RIGHT NOW

Basic Variations: Note on timing – this move works best when the fight has slowed down a bit

Quick Variation:
Extremely simple and effective. When BG is not holding your legs tightly and the fight has slowed down a bit, push his face with one hand as you plant your foot and stand up in base. “PUSH HIS FACE, STAND UP IN BASE”.
