This sweep variation is one of the most powerful sweeps I have ever encountered and it plays well as a combination threat off of the lapel feed armbar. Many of the small details that make this move successful are the same as the previous video. Keep in mind that the setup is key! Make sure that when trapping your opponents arm with their lapel that you feed under the hand on the hip and enter with a thumbs down grip over the elbow. When tightening down this position it comes from dropping watch video >>

In this video I show a transition from Closed Guard to Turtle position. keep in mind this is not going to be a sweep (unless you pull them so hard they fall into Side Control), but it is a great way to get out from under someone. I really like this move because it focuses on strong basics (both the technical stand up and the hip switch). This is something that you can have success with from day one through all of your skill levels. Collar Drags are serious business. Make sure that when y watch video >>

The Lapel Feed is one of my favorite moves. It is especially useful against strong opponents or extremely spastic opponents as it allows you a huge amount of control over their upper body/arm. The most difficult part of this sequence is going to be getting the lapel untucked. There will be times when it is already out because you've been grappling for awhile, other times you will have to purposefully untuck it. Typically I will take an over the back grip to break my opponents posture and watch video >>

This was one of the first sweeps developed from the Half Guard. The control provided by the lapel grip behind the back makes this a great move for beginners, because it slows down the game, while also being great at high levels, again becuase it slows down the game while giving you the ability to control your opponents body with a single arm. Although I have seen this taught many times throughout my grappling career, I have never seen it taught with the same hip movement that I show in this watch video >>

In this video I show a very sneaky and effective move from the Half Guard. Although this move is labeled a sweep it walks a fine line between sweep and reversal. The ruling between sweep and reversal will depend on if you use your legs, if your opponent actually accepts the bottom position (as opposed to staying in Turtle) and how good the referee is. This can be a great option against an opponent that has heavy hips. In the video I show to feed your opponents belt but I have also seen it ta watch video >>

In this clip I look into the Scissor Sweep from Closed Guard. This is a very basic sweep that most of us learned as white belts but typically stop using as we progress past the beginner ranks. The reason we discard this move is not because it is a terrible move but more so because it requires our opponents base to be forward or driving into the persons Guard. There are many different variations to this move and I briefly address the angle of the knee and the benefits of having it across the h watch video >>

This video shows how I perform the Hip Bump Sweep. This is a very basic sweep and a very high percentage sweep all through the ranks of BJJ and even into MMA. There are many different schools that show how to do this and there are a lot of acceptable variations. In this video I show a way to swing your arms up around your head and come up off of your ribs, elbow and hand. When you come at this angle it is very difficult for your opponent to stuff the sweep while also being very comfortable t watch video >>

This video shows a sneaky sweep that abuses your partners fear of getting choked. Often if your partner/opponent has fallen prey to a basic collar choke then the mere act of putting your hand in the collar will prompt a defense. There are a number of different ways that your partner/opponent could defend but if they choose to defend as shown in this video this is a great setup for the Hip Bump Sweep. Once that hand has chased your hand into the collar all you have to do is threaten the chok watch video >>

An in depth look at the very basic Pendulum Sweep. This is a very common sweep that is taught to many practitioners in their first few months but requires a lot of good hip movement to truly master. I personally chose to teach this as early as possible because it focuses on those strong fundamentals that will transfer to other moves. Please reference the video to see how mobile and "open" your hips should be. If you find yourself having a lot of trouble with this hip movement I suggest watch video >>

In this video I show the important concepts surrounding the Lapel Punch Pass. If you watch the video you will notice that I do a couple of things differently. One of the things that I do differently involves staggering my hand grips with the lapels. This allows you to stuff the choking hand and have more success with the pass/submission. Take note at how my hands are positioned. It is very important to have your thumbs facing your chest when taking these grips. This is contrary to the watch video >>

The Balloon Sweep is an intermediate to advanced sweep to utilize but an important concept builder for beginners. Against a skilled opponent this sweep can be very, very difficult but the setup is important because it builds perception of weight distribution. Specifically your opponents weight rocking forward onto your hips. If you hit this sweep correctly it should feel almost effortless. The problem is the window of success is so small that often people will practice this 200-300 times watch video >>

In this video I show one of my favorite sweeps the Pocket Sweep. There are a lot of different entries into this sweep but the most important thing is passing the arm across your centerline. The easiest way to do this is to take control of that arm and either move your hips across or by simply using brute force and passing it in front of your chest. Normally I use a combination of the two things to get maximum efficiency. Once you get the arm across the center line it is very important watch video >>

In this video I show one of my bread and butter sweeps, the Low Hip Bump. Many of us abandon the hip bump as we progress through the ranks. Often it is easy to see the setup coming and stuff the sweep. This is partially due to the fact that the setup is very easy to notice. That is when why the Low Hip Bump is so successful, there is literally no setup involved. This sweep is crazy effective and I find that it is used most often when my opponent has had his posture broken and he/she tri watch video >>
