This is one Victor's favorite passes to use when his opponent is playing a sit up guard. First he grabs the heels and lifts his opponent's legs to roll him on his back. His opponent will react by sitting back up, and when he does, Victor jumps to the side and looks to establish his guard pass.

Now when Victor's opponent gets the half guard, his first reaction is to pummel and get the underhook. Next he steps his leg over the head, ending up in a quarter guard position. From here, he can easily drop his upper body weight and slide his knee out of the quarter guard, and establish side control.

Before moving on to the next technique, Professor Rene goes over how to stand up in your opponent's closed guard. He makes a sleeve and collar grip, and presses both grips down on his opponent's torso. He steps his foot on the same side of the sleeve grip first, and the other foot second. As he stands, he makes sure he has good tall posture, and establishes a strong base before pushing the knee to open the guard.

Victor shows how it is easier for him to mount his opponent if he can get him flat on his back, but in the case he goes all the way to his side, his strategy changes a little. With his knee between the legs, he controls the near elbow and drops his head on the near side of his opponent's head. Now he can slide his legs to mount his opponent.
