The Turtle: Never Get Tapped from the Back Again!
Josh Russell went from white belt to black belt in only three years, and he did it at the world famous Gracie Barra. He quickly gained a reputation of his back defense and attacks from the turtle position. Almost no one can successfully finish him from the back. He used those skills to go on to become a multiple time Brazilian Champion
This DVD covers:

“The turtle is a common position in Jiu Jitsu. Sometimes you need to go to your knees to avoid your opponent’s side mount. I will give up one advantage point to avoid three points. Sometimes if you are down on all fours you have to open up so your opponent has to move. That is when they make the mistakes that cost them the fight.”
