An experienced, creative BJJ teacher, Nino Schembri likes studying the minutiae of ground positions old and new. From all that research and testing, every so often he comes up with something novel. This time it’s the labyrinth guard.
Graciemag asked him for an exclusive video, and he delivered with this one. After locking his opponent’s arm under the leg, Nino has a tight armbar at his disposal, as well as some opportunities to sweep. On top, the armbar remains alive, and the game is wide open for him to work with an advantage.
