Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: The Fireman Guard
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: The Fireman Guard DVD is for advanced Jiu-Jitsu practitioners. The 'fireman guard' is a made-up term to define a mixed position between the butterfly position, the half guard, a 'De la riva' hooking the leg inside, and a 'single leg" move. Olivier Michailescu, the creator of this term, describes it as follows: "Often working in this position, it seemed fun to call it this way because working this position is akin to playing with fire. I propose a multi-directional work with different grips adapted to this guard, as well as some techniques when the opponent manages to pass your guard." Instructor Olivier Michailescu has impressive credentials: 5th in the Coppa del Mondo, purple belt in Brazil; 5th at the World Cup in Brazil, brown belt; 3rd at the European Championship Master 1, in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2012; Champion of France (Ne Waza) 2012; 3rd degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since January 2012, awarded by GM Flavio Behring, 9th Degree, and Master Christian Derval, 4th Degree; 2nd Dan Black Belt in Judo since 2009; certified national instructor in Ne-Waza (the ground part in Judo) by the French Federation of Judo.
