Xande's closing lesson from the butterfly seminar covers how to get underneath your opponent if they decide to post out by standing against your classic hook sweep. When your opponent posts a leg out, it gives you the space to hook the far leg and get underneath them to transition into various X guard sweeps. Combining multiple attacks such as the arm lock and the x-guard transition with the hook sweep can confuse your opponent and allow you to capitalize on their reaction.

Rico explains how to control the distance and attack your opponent from the z guard or half guard knee shield position with the rollover sweep or omoplata. Afterwards he explains that he switches between the knee shield, spider guard, butterfly guard, and classic open depending on the distance as well as whether his opponent is standing or on their knees. If your opponent is on both knees, a half spider or butterfly guard may make more sense while a classic open, spider guard, or de la riva guard will work more effectively against a standing opponent.
