Professor Victor is playing classic collar and sleeve guard, but he can't move his opponent because his base is too heavy. He drops his bottom foot between his opponent's legs, releases the sleeve grip to grab the pants at the knee, and uses his top foot to make a hook inside the thigh. Now he straightens his bottom leg as he pulls his opponent on top of him and then pushes him away, making space to bring his foot around the leg and on the hip. Next he swims his arm under the leg, and moves his foot from the hip to make a hook under the leg. He stretches his legs to push his opponent away, and stands up in base to come to the top, immediately looking to throw the leg and pass the guard.
