Xande teaches two basic but highly effective sweeps that you can use to sweep your opponent from the closed guard. The closed guard is a great position for beginners. Your opponent will have to break your closed guard before being able to pass. This will provide you with extra time to think about what to do next. As a white belt, it helps to start with small goals and celebrate the victories of achieving these goals. For example, for one week you could choose to play closed guard with the goal of sweeping your opponent with the hip bump or pendulum sweep while not letting your opponent pass your closed guard. The next week your goal could be to try to submit your opponent from the closed guard by combining the hip bump sweep with the kimura or guillotine.

The cross grip guard or 2 on 1 guard has very similar attacks as the classic guard. The different between the two guards is a difference in how you are gripping your opponent's gi. The classic guard has one grip in your opponent's cross collar and one grip on the same side sleeve. The cross grip guard is when you grip your opponent's cross sleeve while the 2 on 1 guard is when you have your opponent's cross sleeve and use the same side hand to grip their gi near the armpit to reinforce the cross grip. The arm drag, scissor sweep, and de la riva hook combinations from the 2 on 1 or cross grip guard are very similar to their classic guard variations.
