This is the 11th app in the How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent series. These apps give you the techniques and strategies you need to defend yourself against, and defeat, opponents much larger than yourself using the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The single most important thing you can do to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger opponent, and then to launch your own offense, is to control the grips.

This sounds so simple, but it’s actually a very technical area, where knowing the right thing to do can totally nullify the size and strength advantage of your opponent. In this video Emily gives you the specific techniques, strategies and mindset that will allow you to dominate the gripping game both on the feet and on the ground.

Once you’ve learned the correct gripping strategies to keep yourself safe and control your opponent, Emily then shares the best low-risk strategies for getting the fight to the ground in a way that keeps things in your favor.

The techniques taught by Emily don’t require crazy athleticism but will still prevent bigger guys from manhandling you all over the mat.

The bottom line is that this instructional app will allow you to level the playing field when you're much smaller than your opponent.


** 1 hours, 32 minutes of pure, filler-free instruction

** Every technique, strategy and training drill is focused on allowing you to survive and thrive while grappling against opponents much larger than you on the mats

** All the footage has been professionally filmed and edited for maximum ease of learning

** The app includes complete menus for easy navigation

** You can create a list of your favourite techniques and drills using our one-click ‘favourite’ feature

** The app is designed to download to your phone or iPad; an internet connection is NOT required to view the videos

** Free download of Stephan Kesting's ‘The Roadmap for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’ book with your purchase of this app!

  • Good, but...

    by DrWJODonnell

    Firstly, I would like to say that I love Stephen Kesting's apps. They are well thought out and very informative. I have been picking up a number of these while they have been on sale in recent weeks. This is the first one that I have been somewhat disappointed in. Not that it is bad per se, but to be as expensive as the other apps with what I believe to be a smaller amount of information, is too bad. Other apps are much more jampacked with good information than this. Big/Strong 7, 9, and 13 are all much better as are his submissions, defenses, and other apps.
