Inside the University 45 - Passing During the Guard Pull with a Hand Plant Modified X-Pass

Add to Favorites Remove From Favorites 915 2428 days ago

Saulo teaches the guard pass that he used during his opponent's guard pull in the Absolute finals match against Fabio Leopoldo at the 2013 IBJJF Master Senior World Championships. In this pass we plant our hand on our opponent's ribs and lean forward to pressure their hips to hinder their mobility. At the same time we cut across at an angle to steer around our opponent's legs to pass their guard while they are pulling guard on you. The guard pass requires split moment reaction and requires drilling to be able to perform it quickly. It is essential to prevent our opponent from being able to place their feet on our hips, to apply pressure with our hand on their ribs to hinder the mobility of their hips, and to cut across at an angle all at the same time.
