Professor Gustavo Gasperin is a BJJ Black Belt under Fabricio Werdum, and was the Head Instructor at Fabricio's gym for many years, located in Venice, CA.

Ashi Garami Fundamentals is not your typical instructional video with dozens of isolated techniques that are not even linked to each other. We’ve organized all the info, connected all the techniques together in a predictable system, and given you a solid plan to be executed.

The focus of this Course is on building a solid foundation for your Leglock and Guard game, by utilizing the Ashi Garami and Single Leg X-Guard as powerful control positions, and the Ankle Lock as the primary submission attack.

Once your opponent enters into the "system", whether he/she is standing up (Single Leg X-Guard) or on the ground (Ashi Garami), you will be in attacking mode. With several counters and recounters for your opponent's defenses, you will be always threatening him/her with sweeps and Ankle Lock submissions.

Although we touch upon more advanced Leglock submissions and positions, this Course is geared to the beginner student who wants to develop a solid foundation and still be able to compete and apply the techniques under the IBJJF rules.

The core curriculum is 100% IBJJF legal for all Belts, including White. No knee-reaping, no illegal submissions.
