Starting with the same grips at the shin on the pants, Xande begins the toreando pass as he did before, but for whatever reason he doesn't feel comfortable finishing the pass as he did in the previous positions. Instead, he swims his far arm undernee ath the leg, and stretches his other arm to keep the near leg immobilized.

Xande shows another variation of the toreando. He makes his grips on the pants at the shins, like he did before, and passes to the side while keeping weight on the legs. Now when he gets to the side, instead of going to knee on belly, he drops his shoulder on to his opponent's chest and establishes side control. It is important that he doesn't turn his hips to face his opponent or sprawl them to the mat.
