Following the same set up as before, Eduardo traps the arm, hooks the leg and elevates his opponent. However, instead of looking to recover closed guard this time, he looks to sweep instead. Now when he brings his leg to the outside, he uses it like a scissor to sweep his opponent and establish his top position.

From the half guard, Eduardo attempts the bridge sweep shown in the previous technique, but he cannot get his leg on the outside of his opponent's far leg this time. So now he pulls his opponent on top of him, grabs the far knee and hooks the inside of the trapped leg. Using his hook, he lifts his opponent and creates space to bring his other leg around to close his guard.

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.

From standing, Eduardo gets his cross collar and sleeve grips, and kicks at his opponent's leg to make him step back. This opens the space for him to pull half guard. Now depending on his opponent's reaction, he can set up different sweeps. If his opponent stays on his knees, he shoves the wrist to the body and kicks back to roll his opponent. If he steps one leg up, Eduardo comes underneath to an X guard and sweeps.

From standing up, Eduardo has his arm resting on his leg to protect from takedowns. As his opponent shoots in for the single leg, he cups the chin, pushes the head to the outside and sets up his guillotine lock. From here he has the options to finish while standing up, or fall back to a closed or half guard to finish.

From his opponent's De La Riva guard, Eduardo makes a collar and pants grip, and steps over the leg. Here he changes his grips so the hand on the pants grabs the collar and his other arm swims under the hook leg. He grabs his opponent's hand to break his grip, and dives his arm underneath the head before taking a big back step, keeping control of the wrist until he settles into side control.

Eduardo's opponent is working to pass his guard with the knee cut, so his first line of defense is to block his arm at the biceps. Now he does a big bridge into his opponent, stretching his outside arm across as far as he can. This creates the space he needs to swim his head and body out from underneath, and get to a control position while his opponent is on his knees.

Eduardo is behind his opponent who is in turtle and trying to avoid submissions. Eduardo picks up his opponent's foot and traps it with his hip. Now he drops his knee to the inside, forcing his opponent to the mat on his side. Now he grabs the far lapel and shuffles to side control, pulling his opponent to his back as he goes.

From his opponent's half guard, Eduardo pushes the knee and moves to three quarter mount position. He pins his opponent's wrist to the mat, traps the other arm with his arm and steps his free leg over the head, as he would for a monoplata. From here he sits back and adjusts his position to finish the armbar.

From the half guard, Eduardo reaches over his opponent's underhooking arm, and grabs the belt, trapping the arm. His other hand grabs the pants at the knee, and he escapes his hips so he can place his hook under the thigh on the same side of his belt grip. Now he plants his other foot on the mat, elevates his opponent with his hook and brings his other leg to the outside, using it to scissor his opponent's leg as he sweeps him.
