Saulo continues the hip switch butterfly pass series and shows a variation of the hip switch that will allow you to progress directly to the mount. The hip switch to the mount is most effective when your opponent continues to insist on sweeping you with the butterfly hook.

The star pass is similar to the hip switch pass but requires more adept finesse by combining the need to switch your hips while applying pressure mid switch to immobilize your opponent's hips.

Although the sprawl pass may seem simple, it takes repetition and drilling to perfect the necessary timing and distance to successfully pass your opponent's guard in live rolling.
