Xande is looking to pull guard, so he makes the basic collar and triceps grips on the gi. A common practice is to put your foot in the hip on the same side that you have the sleeve grip, but in this case, Xande is more focused on pulling his opponent off balance as he pulls guard. So he puts his foot on the hip on the collar grip side, and lands in front of his opponent, breaking his base. Now he can set up an open guard or look to close his guard.

From the back, Bruno opens the collar and slides his choking hand as deep as he can. He places his same side foot on the hip, and his free hand reaches to grab under the knee and pull the leg to him. Next, he moves his foot from the hip and throws his leg over the shoulder and closes his elbow to finish the choke. It is important that he keeps his chest tight to his opponent's body, as to not give him space to escape.
