With the same grips and position set up as in the previous two techniques, now Xande has a question on what Leonel will do if he can break Leonel's sleeve grip. The first thing he does is feed the same side lapel to his hand and grips that instead of the sleeve. Then he swims his other arm under the leg and switches the grip to his other hand, and now uses his forearm as a frame to keep Xande from using his knee to pressure. By opening his elbow, Leonel creates space to bring his free arm between the legs and grabs the belt, pants or even other lapel if it's accessible. Now he can raise his hips and bridge to finish the hip bump sweep.
