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.

Touching on a few details, Fabio shows that he is not rolling immediately after bridging his opponent off him. He steers the wheel with his grips to roll his opponent, and then he can either bring his outside leg over or his inside leg underneath to get to the top. He also points out the difference of having a low escrima which is ineffective, and a high escrima which can immobilize the arm.

It's Yan Lucas' turn to ask Leonel a question, so he starts in the deep half where Leonel has the sleeve grip under the leg and is framing with his arm. To defend the first sweep, Yan gets the cross face, places his head in Leonel's chest and sprawls his free leg back to stay low. Now Leonel brings his arm up, reaches over the back of Yan's head and grabs the armpit. From here he crunches his body, forcing Yan's head and knee together, and pushes off the mat with his feet to turn his hips to the outside and roll Yan over the top.

With the same grips and position set up as in the previous two techniques, now Xande has a question on what Leonel will do if he can break Leonel's sleeve grip. The first thing he does is feed the same side lapel to his hand and grips that instead of the sleeve. Then he swims his other arm under the leg and switches the grip to his other hand, and now uses his forearm as a frame to keep Xande from using his knee to pressure. By opening his elbow, Leonel creates space to bring his free arm between the legs and grabs the belt, pants or even other lapel if it's accessible. Now he can raise his hips and bridge to finish the hip bump sweep.

Showing another variation from the previous technique, Leonel begins with the sleeve grip under the leg and Xande's knee in the middle on his belly. This time however, Xande steps his outside leg up to keep a base. As soon as he does, Leonel swings his leg forward and sits up to an S position, keeping his knees pinched tight. With his free hand posted on the mat, he pulls himself up to his knees, pulling Xande's leg away and sweeping him in the process.

In this technique, Xande is inside Leonel's half guard and using his knee to put pressure on Leonel's belly. With his knees pinching Xande's leg, Leonel uses his knee to bump Xande forward, and he brings his arm under the leg and grips the sleeve. Xande's reaction is to get a cross face and try to smash Leonel, so Leonel reaches over the back and grabs the belt. Now he pushes off the mat with his feet to lift his hips, and turns the opposite direction his hips are facing, rolling Xande over him and finishing on top. To pass, he can easily kick his leg back and get to side control.
