Gustavo shows a guard he began using after a knee surgery, which allowed him to play guard without too much stress on his knee. From an open guard or perhaps a De La Riva, his opponent pushes his knees and pressures with his inside leg. Gustavo reaches under the leg to grab his own shin, making a kind of modified De La Riva hook, and his other leg hooks behind the inside leg. Now using his hooks and collar grip, he can pull his opponent and get off balance, setting him up for various sweeps which he will show next.

Now he is back to the side smash position and has the same passing options as before.

Eduardo's opponent is on top in half guard with heavy shoulder pressure, so Eduardo locks the inside leg with a triangle and pushes the foot away with his foot. Now he grabs the hand that is pushing his knee, and pulls it down. He reaches over the arm and grabs the belt, trapping the arm now. Next he moves his legs so that his foot is now blocking the far leg rather than the near foot, and his other foot plants on the mat so he can bridge and sweep his opponent.
