Openmat MMA is excited to have brown belt world champion Jonathan Thomas from Alliance Atlanta coming to Toronto to teach his competition forged guard system.

On Saturday, April 28, Jon will begin by teaching the guard recovery skills that are the framework of his famous guard work. Then he will go directly into teaching the spider guard game that has helped him win at the top levels of international competition.

Sunday, April 29, Jon will be discussing his guard passing theory and showing his favourite high percentage guard passes. Followed by how to untangle yourself from your common guards (spider, DLR, butterfly, etc.) and move directly into his passing game.

Date: Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29, 2012
Time: 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm (both days)
Price: $60 per day or $100 for both
Location: Openmat MMA @ 593 Yonge St, Toronto, Canada (Google Map: http://g.co/maps/5h9vb)
