Ive watched about 30minutes of Xandes instructional. It seems like it’s missing an introduction or something. Just jumps right into half guard smash escape talking about diamond concept with no explanation of what he’s referring to. I’m guessing they are assuming people have watched the YouTube release with Bernardo? I’m finding it kind of hard to follow, which is odd because xande is usually breaks down his stuff pretty clearly on bjjlibrary. I also find it odd that in hundreds of vids on bjjlibrary, I’ve never seen a vid where he refers to the diamond concept at all.
ugh this is what drives me crazy about so many instructors.
Don't assume I understand what's happening in your head. Provide the right kind of context and build up my mental models as we go. Otherwise, this is entertainment, not instruction.
I’m pretty sure it’s bjj fanatics fault for getting the techniques out of order and not Xandes.
The instruction by Xande is awesome.
