I went to a great Xande seminar today at force/balance bjj. It cost 35 dollars. Yes that's it.

Moves: he showed the double under pass, jumping over one leg if the double under fails, and passing the z guard.

Concepts: head position for the passing was important for all passes. For the double under pass you want to keep eye contact the entire time to ensure forward movement and pressure. For the hop over, you have to put pressure on the waistline and for the zguard, you you put shoulder and head pressure on your opponents top hip, looking at the side you're passing. Pressure was the overall concept. He focused on using your head and shoulders to pressure during passes

Criticisms of bjj from him:Double guard pull is bullshit, ibjjf rules are not to his liking, time limits stifle bjj and encourage athleticism, and you should only do moves that encourage longevity in the sport Phone Post

What would be moves that encourage longevity in the sport? I think rickson and saulo would be guys with that type of jiu jitsu but both are pretty busted up now.

Not doing moves that require extreme flexibility or moves that make you roll over on your neck. Phone Post

Yup, you guys coordinated well.

The reason the cost was so low was because the host, Steve Cardenas, did not make any money off the seminar. It all went to Xande for his time.

Age is no barrier to flexibility:
