The Short Guy Guard

September 2020

The Short Guy Guard is a project that's been in the works for over 4 years. After finding that there were no major resources for short guard players anywhere to be found. Alec Baulding decided to put together years of competition tested techniques into an instructional made for short grapplers but also applicable for any up and coming guard players wanting to improve their guard.
