Kron Gracie Knows.

Rickson Gracie Knows.

The Black Belts Who Attend His “Black Belt ONLY Seminars” Know.

And THESE Guys & Gals Know

As with all of my “side control” training systems… first things first….

Rickson sees and does things different than the average joe.

And in turn… just like every other position we see, engage with and refer to, this position is treated differently as well… from here forward its not “side mount” its “Cross Side”…

I’m not saying this to debate semantics, I just to avoid any confusion.

When most people say “side mount”, Rickson, Myself and my Students say “Cross Side” and inside this Cross Side “Heavy As A Dead Whale” course you’ll get to see first hand WHY we see the position DIFFERENTLY.

My favorite dominant position is Cross Side simply because you have so many options and your opponent has so few.

However the position that just might be the most dynamic that gives you almost INFINITE options for submission, position advancement and mental destruction of your opponent is Cross Side (aka side control).

The thing in today’s Jiu Jitsu I find MOST disturbing is seeing people either willingly GIVING UP a tremendous positional advantage for a lesser position…

ie. willingly giving up side control OR being UNABLE to maintain.

Or advance with DOMINANT CONTROL from the cross side position.

If you’re EVER getting to cross side only to find your opponents getting to their knees or shrimping away or causing some sort of scramble….

I’ve got answers for you in this course.

Truth is if you’re getting to cross side and experiencing ANYTHING other than complete and total DOMINANCE & CONTROL then you’re missing critical fundamentals you MUST acquire to maximize your top control in this position.

Most importantly is how you THINK while ON YOUR WAY to the cross side position. This alone will revolutionize your CONTROL once you get there.

Another aspect of a Cross Side (side control) all too often overlooked is in many cases I see people getting to Cross Side (side control) only to find either 1 or BOTH of their hands occupied while they try to hold down their opponent.

If you’ve ever found yourself “stuck” on the TOP side of Cross Side (side control) unable to “advance” or “submit” because your hand or hands are OCCUPIED then…

I’ve got something extremely special up my sleeve that will allow you to CONTROL & DOMINATE from the top of Cross Side (side control) AND have BOTH hands free to attack or advance in any way you like.

This course immediately turns you into a “finisher” from the top of the Cross Side (side control) position and a sheer TERROR for anyone facing you.

Remember I don’t see Jiu Jitsu as a “sport” its about life and death.

So when I say DOMINATE & CONTROL I mean “the reason you don’t want to give up top cross side control and get reversed is the BOTTOM is where you get maimed or KILLED”

I want you OUT of harms way and I want you FINISHING the engagement whether its on the street, training in the gym or competing at a highest level.

The most critical aspect in DOMINATING & CONTROLLING the top Cross Side position aside from YOUR position and mindset… is KNOWING in advance exactly HOW your opponent is going to move to try to escape your control…

The “magic” in my “Heavy As A Dead Whale” Side CONTROL System is the fact that ALL your opponents escapes become 100% PREDICTABLE simply based upon HOW you enter into and execute your cross side (side control) position!

These are NOT not some “theoretical ideas” about the cross side position. What I’m saying is this…

By using the control, positioning and attacks in this course I GUARANTEE your regular training partners will FEVERISHLY PANIC when you arrive in cross side.

They will be so fearful and intimidated by your top control they will roll the moment they failed to stop you from passing their guard and more importantly they will gladly and quickly give up their back or mount willingly just to avoid your “Heavy As A Dead Whale” Pressure.

Whether you’re a white belt who’d prefer to learn your cross side pressure, control and top game RIGHT the FIRST time around or if you’re a belt of color who’d love nothing more than to make cross side an “terrifying nightmare” for any opponent…

My “Heavy As A Dead Whale” Cross Side CONTROL System is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

If you like hearing training partners respond with ….


-How’d you do that?

-Can you show me that?

-Nobody’s EVER done that to me

Then this is the ONLY systematic approach to DOMINATION & CONTROL of Cross side (side control) you need.

“Here’s All You Really Need To Know About
Rickson Gracie And His Opinion Of Henry Akins…”

“I studied at Rickson’s under Henry for 3 years, and here’s all you need to know about Rickson’s opinion of Henry, the depth of his understating of Rickson’s game and his ability to TEACH ALL of the most closely guarded secret aspects of Rickson’s Jiu Jitsu… Rickson could have chosen anyone in the Gracie family or anyone in his academy to take on the task of teaching Jiu Jitsu to his youngest son Kron. In my over 15 years in Jiu Jitsu I’ve heard a lot of things directly from Rickson’s own black belts about Rickson’s Academy and what happened behind closed doors. And the fact is this… there was nobody Rickson trusted more to pass HIS Jiu Jitsu on to Kron than Henry Akins”
– Sean Patrick Flanery, Black Belt, Hollywood, California

Some people call what I teach…
“fundamentals” Some call it
“Basic” But the truth is “Hidden Jiu Jitsu” is all about…
Getting back to basics where LEVERAGE and SMARTS beats athletic, gifted and chemically enhanced 100% of the time. It’s time for us to TAKE BACK OUR JIU JITSU.
And now that you’re here I’ll be sharing with you my 20 years of experience that’s resulted directly from training full time in Los Angeles, California with the man the late great Grandmaster Helio Gracie used to call “Urso” (the bear)… My Instructor… Rickson Gracie. The man regarded as “the greatest Jiu Jitsu fighter of all time”.
For much of my adult life I’ve had the unique and enviable experience few could ever dream of. I’ve been side by side with Rickson Gracie on the mat training with him, instructing for him, helping him prepare for fights, defending the honor of his academy, teaching one of his sons and training endless hours with the other. I’ve spent more hours inside of more closed door, back room training sessions led and run by Rickson than any human being alive. Its well known that Rockson was Rickson’s oldest son. What’s not as well known is that Rockson was one of my very best friends and NOBODY trained with Rockson more than I did. I have been allowed into an inner sanctum of Rickson Gracie’s that most people only wonder and debate about in mat side chats after practice and debate about his “myth vs legend” status in online forums.

I remember hearing Kyra Gracie recount a story… “
When I was really small, I remember having asked Renzo [Gracie]: ‘Uncle, is Rickson everything they say he is?’ And
the answer has stuck in my head since: ‘No. He’s much more.

Here are 7 Reasons WHY You Should Believe Me & Trust That What I Call “Hidden Jiu Jitsu” Is NOT The Jiu Jitsu You Nor Your Training Partners (And Possibly Even Your Instructors) Are Familiar With…

  • I’ve taken my training with Master Rickson DEAD SERIOUS from day one. The ONLY reason I left home and my mom and dad in Oklahoma with little more than the clothes on my back 19 years ago was to learn Gracie Jiu Jitsu from THE MAN himself. 19 years later I STILL take the Jiu Jitsu I learned from him DEAD SERIOUS
  • It’s well known that Rickson did NOT give out black belts generously. It is and always has been one of the stingiest belt promoters in all of jiu jitsu. – I got my blue belt in 6 months. Faster than ANYONE under him EVER. – I got my purple belt in 2 years. Absolutley UNHEARD of for one of his students to advance to Purple Belt that quickly. – When he gave me my black belt NOBODY had received their black belt from Rickson FASTER than I did and to my knowledge that hasn’t changed
  • It’s well documented that Rockson was Rickson’s oldest son who tragically died in 2000… Rockson was one of my very best friends. I was his PRIMARY training partner. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him and miss him dearly.
  • Coming up in jiu jitsu as one of Rockson’s best friends and with personal, direct & constant access to Rickson’s inner sanctum I can honestly say I’ve witnessed true “family secrets” that have NEVER been shared, exposed or discussed outside the family. NOW I’m sharing them with YOU
  • I participated in and WON challenge matches even at WHITE belt, in Master RIckson’s academy fighting on his behalf and on the behalf of my teammates.
  • As a blue belt I was already running warm ups and assisting higher ranked instructors at his academy and did so until he moved back to Brazil. I officially taught as a lead instructor for him starting in 2000 as one of his Brown belts
  • I personally witnessed him REGULARLY dismantling visiting world class black belts and world champions. All those stories you hear about this guy, that guy and all the stuff that went down behind closed doors… more often than not I was one of the FEW eyewitnesses.

What I’m sharing with you will NOT be second hand. It’s FIRST hand. Saw it with my own eyes. Felt it with my own hands. And I’ve taught it and continue to teach it EVERYDAY for well over a decade.Remember, “Hidden Jiu Jitsu” isn’t THEORY. It’s EXACTLY what Rickson taught to just a FEW of us. My love, appreciation and respect for the Gracie family knows no bounds. And I’ve yet to find someone who can explain to me IF there are no secrets and IF the information is all out there then HOW can you explain how Kron his son is the ONLY black belt under RIckson to make a major splash at the highest levels of jiu jitsu? The short answer is “you can’t.
Rickson’s core concept of DEFENSE was given to him by his father Helio. Helio’s entire game was based around being able to avoid and escape ANY attack, in ANY position, from ANY opponent at ANY time. The ability to stay safe at all times in all positions was priority #1 and NOBODY embodied this principle better than Rickson.
And when you see the details you’ll be #MINDBLOWN! Your training partners will shake their heads in frustration as you become completely UNSTOPPABLE with these “Hidden Jiu Jitsu” Systems & StrategiesLet’s Talk Soon,
