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

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 more

In this video I show one of the most basic Open Guard Sweeps, the Push Pull Sweep. I have seen this taught more times than I can count and I have seen tons of little details and variations that make it unique each time. It's hard to determine which was is the best because they all accomplish different things. Here is my version of the sweep.

At the beginning of this video I talk about how to transition from Closed Guard to Open Guard. This is a concept of thinking and should really be watche more

In this video I show how to do a Reverse Armbar from Closed Guard. This is a pretty common move that you see attempted throughout the ranks but finished with very little frequency. This is due to the fact that the setup is tedious and the hip movement required to dominate the shoulder is difficult.

This is a great move to attempt on someone who has no posture and will allow you to get a "1 under one over" grip. Take note of how my hand grip is. This is a VERY important detail. The arm th more

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 more

In this video I show a very simple stacking defense for the armbar. There are multiple different ways to defend but I enjoy showing this to beginners because it is a defense that you can use when you didn't see the setup for the armbar coming and your opponent already has their angle and their hips out.

Make sure when you stack your opponent up you get your knee as close as possible to your opponents ear and you post your back leg at an angle so that your knee is against your opponents lower b more

In this video I show one of my highest percentage Butterfly Guard Passes The Modified Cartwheel. This is a great option and works at all levels. I especially like to use it against advanced players as they do not expect a larger player like me to do something like this.

This is distinctly different from a regular cartwheel pass as it starts on your knees and does not require you to support your body weight on your arms. As a matter of a fact that is one of the hardest part of this pass, it r more

In this video I show a very dominating Open Guard. This is one of my favorite passes against an opponent that has a good seated Guard. This pass requires good base and, most importantly, a lot of confidence.

Make sure that when you step into the space between your opponents legs that you enter with your legs bent and not bent at the waist. It is important to have your already bent forward when it's making contact with your opponent's chest to create enough forward force to complete this pa more

In this video I show a very simple yet very effective guard pass the Slam and Go. This plays as a variation of the Bull Fighter Pass.

One of the most powerful things you can do while looking to pass the open guard is to control both pant legs and that is the bases for this pass. Take control of the pants on the inside of the of your opponents knees and step back. As you step back you need to slam your opponents legs to the floor and start to turn the corner.

A couple of things that you need more

In this video I show a common Quarter Guard Sweep, the Wing Sweep.

I see a lot of people play the QG (Quarter Guard) position but only as a stalling position to get their opponents weight off of them. The QG can be good defensively, but it can also be amazing when used to set up offensive movements as well.

The trick to the Wing Sweep is getting your opponents hand fed across your body. This is by far the most difficult aspect of this move and it may be almost impossible, depending wheat typ more
