Never get stuck on the bottom again with BJJ champ Jonatas Novaes and his amazing Flat Half Guard! New from World Martial Arts, Jonatas Novaes’s Flat Half Guard is one of the most unique and innovative positions ever seen on any BJJ instructional series to date. Similar to being mounted, being stuck in a “flat half guard’ is having your back, shoulders and head trapped down on the mat.

Always training with larger opponents, Jonatas would often find himself in this position, stuck on the bottom and fighting from his back. Refusing to give up, Jonatas started to develop a series of moves that allowed him to escape, sweep and submit from the “flat half” as he started to call it. Over the years, he has become so effective in this position that he now quite often flattens himself out, allowing him to surprise and attack his unsuspecting opponents.


In this DVD series, Jonatas will teach you everything you need to know to fight and win from the Flat Half! With over 70 techniques on the entire series, you will learn step-by-step all of the grips, sweeps, reversals and submissions that will enable you to win from the flat half! Every technique on this entire series Jonatas has personally used in hundreds of BJJ and MMA matches so this is the must have BJJ series of the year and another World Martial Arts exclusive!
