Xande is looking to pull guard, so he makes the basic collar and triceps grips on the gi. A common practice is to put your foot in the hip on the same side that you have the sleeve grip, but in this case, Xande is more focused on pulling his opponent off balance as he pulls guard. So he puts his foot on the hip on the collar grip side, and lands in front of his opponent, breaking his base. Now he can set up an open guard or look to close his guard.
