Xande talks about how his guard has only been passed by two people in two decades of jiu jitsu competition and how being able to frame and always stay safe will allow you to build up to an impassable guard. In this lesson we learn how to set the frame and use it to create the space and mobility needed to recover your guard. We learn that after setting the frame and/or shield on our opponent, we can greatly increase our mobility by using our other arm to frame against the ground with our elbow or hand for maximum mobility.

This lesson was not in the JJU book but shares the same concept of collar dragging your opponent except from a different situation. In this situation, your opponent is on their knees and leaning their weight back in an attempt to prevent the collar drag. Some minor adjustments allow us to create the opportunity to collar drag our opponent even though they are on their knees and assuming a stalling position. The collar drag from butterfly goes very well in combination with the ankle pick from butterfly. This combination echoes the action-reaction concept that can be seen in many transitions in jiu jitsu.
