 Whether you're still inexperienced or even advanced in Jiu-Jitsu. When rolling with "Superior" opponents, the Lotus Lockdown is Kryptonite. It's surprisingly simple, yet extraordinarily powerful"

Ever since the famous Polaris fight between the Jiu-jitsu legend Royler Gracie and Eddie Bravo, people have recognized the power and effectiveness of the Lockdown.

By using the Lockdown, Eddie Bravo managed to dominate and control one of the best old school grapplers on the planet, demonstrating why this is the world’s most powerful half guard system.

What is the Lotus Lockdown?


The Lotus Lockdown is a modified Gi version of Master Eddie Bravo’s Lockdown system.

It will give you a superior ability to lock down your opponent with a simple two-on-one leg connection and a firm upper body control.


Nobody likes being the weakest guy at the academy.

Training regularly is necessary if you want to improve in Jiu Jitsu, but it can be daunting both as a white belt and blue belt alike.

If you are learning random techniques with limited repetitions, waisting your time doing what everybody else is doing, then you will continue being manhandled and smashed by stronger, faster and more aggressive opponents.

Of course you get smashed.

Because you try to be a jack of all trades, (but master of none).

You are predictable!

What is it like to dominate higher belts?

Some people will never admit it, but being able to dominate higher belts is like fuel for any jiu-jitsu practitioner.

It gives you the energy, the motivation, and the confidence to pursue the next belt.

And dominating higher belts is possible!

Actually, it's quite simple. All you need is to acquire superior knowledge within a specific area that your opponents aren't familiar with. No matter their belt level, pulling them into your area of expertise and they will have no idea how to defend. Figuratively, the water has become too deep and you are the shark attacking from below! They won't know what hit them before it's too late. 

This is what the Lotus Lockdown is all about!

The Lotus Lockdown is the ideal system for people who are struggling with their ground game. 
Learn how to make a difference on the mats in as little as three weeks or faster!

✔️ Slow down the game

Even at a physical disadvantage, the Lotus Lockdown will help you dictate the pace of the fight and gain significant advantage over stronger, faster and more technical opponents.

✔️ Save your energy

The Lotus Lockdown will put you in the driver’s seat and will drain your opponents energy fast as he keeps trying to pass your guard.

✔️ No More leg-locks

When establishing a firm leg connection and a focused upper-body clinch, it becomes nearly impossible to be leg-locked from the Lotus Lockdown.

✔️ Self-confidence

Since most Gi practitioners remain unfamiliar with the position, they’re in for a big surprise in their next matchup with you. This gap in knowledge will be the extra edge that you need to submit higher-level opponents.

The 4 fundamental pillars of the Lotus Lockdown

The Leg connection

Upper body control

The Under hook game

The Over hook game

Take a look inside...

1. The Leg connection

To the untrained eye, this is the lockdown, but there is so much more underneath the surface. One thing is for sure, a great leg connection is crucial! 


2. Upper body control

By establishing a firm leg connection and a focused upper-body clinch, very few people will be able to pass your guard! 


3. The benefits of using the Lotus Lockdown in the Gi.

Check out master Magnus speaking about the benefits of using the Lotus lockdown.  


4. The Under hook game

To be effective from the half guard you need to understand the power of using your underhooks. Trust me, underhooks are everything when you are using the Lotus lockdown!


Available in mobile app!

The Lotus Lockdown course is also accessible in mobile through Kajabi's app, to take the course with you and practice anywhere you like!

5. How to work the "Whip". 

Mastering the "Whip" is going to help you manipulate your opponent's base. It's also a great core exercise!


6. The Over hook game

When you can't get the underhook, the overhook is always available. Learn how to use it effectively!


7. The Electric chair sweep

This is the most high percentage sweep in the system. Very few people know how to defend it, which is going to be a lot of fun for you!


8. The Electric Chair Submission

The EC Submission is the submission that you most frequently will be catching people of all belt colors with. It's extremely powerful so beware!   


9. Debunking Lockdown escapes

There are tons of videos on YouTube showing how to get out of the lockdown. In this instructional, we debunk 99% of them, because there is no easy way to get out of the Lotus Lockdown!


"The Lotus Lockdown system in a Gi is simple to learn and if practiced properly, this series of techniques will radically advance your game and instantly create problems for higher belts!"
      - Magnus Hansson, 10th Planet Stockholm, Sweden


"I've been playing lockdown for about 15 years. I don't know where I picked it up originally, and almost everything I've learned from there I've picked up piece by piece, "in the wild." This is an excellent intro to the system, has excellent finishes that I didn't know about, and fills in a lot of the gaps I had by never having any real system level instruction in playing lockdown.
He has an excellent section near the end where he dispels myths about the lockdown. It's really funny because he has his whitebelt there with him so he can "show how a white belt would do it" and then he instructs him to do things like, "Whitebelt do this or whitebelt do that" without even using his name. It's pretty good. One of the myths, for example is even something I was taught in catch wrestling, "If someone plays lockdown just standup and indian deathlock their legs." Listen, no one has ever stood in my lockdown in 15 years, he addresses this. He shows that if you're not controlling the upper body you've failed this position already. He shows all the over and underhook concepts from bottom, which were excellent as well.
All in all the layout is: concepts of the lockdown, getting into the position, finishes, strategy talk/troubleshooting, solo drills, then Q and A about the lockdown. It's just over an hour long and it had excellent things that I hadn't picked up playing or watching the 10th planet game over the years.
This is in a gi and everything he shows has worked for me over the years doing it against all levels of BJJ opponents. I'd give this a solid 10/10 if you use this position."
- Scott Champine, brown belt, from Phoenix Arizona.

This instructional really shook things up at the gym.  Nobody expected it, but "Suddenly" I started tapping higher belts. It's been a game/life changer for me.
