    Calling closed guard "stage 1"

    I just saw it in this video https://youtu.be/hcrVH-zi9qQ?t=34s and they do it at the place I train. Is there some kind of curriculum they're getting this from?

    It seems to me that Stage 1 is Closed Guard with the Arm and Head trapped in the way he is showing vs say just closed guard.

    I have not heard of either the Closed Guard or the Closed guard with head and arm trapped as Stage One.

      The naming looks like it might be related to the
      punch defense from the guard
      curriculum

        I call it "first base".

          "Stage 1" is specifically with the head control and overhook.

            They went full Bravo and renamed stuff. It was just the guard punch block series of moves from Helio's basics with sweep on the end. That might be a favorite position of his.

              Given how tiny he is, I wouldn't be surprised. Plus, and I mean this half seriously, how block ear-chew ?

                Thanks. If I ever find good versions of videos of these moves without Rener's shit eating grin I'll post them here
