Know the rules: Guard Pass (3 points)


When the athlete in top position manages to surmount the legs of the opponent in bottom position (pass
guard or half-guard) and maintain side-control or north-south position over him/her for 3 (three) seconds.

Note 1: Guard is defined by the use of one or more legs to block the opponent from reaching side-control or north-south

position over the athlete on bottom.

Note 2: Half-guard is the guard where the athlete on bottom is lying on his/her back or side and has one of the

top-positioned athlete’s legs trapped, blocking him/her from achieving side- or north-south control over the

bottom-positioned athlete for 3 (three) seconds.

Note 3: The position of the top athlete’s legs determines whether it is half-guard or reverse half-guard, according to the
following examples


EXAMPLE 1: In half-guard with his right leg trapped, his

left leg is positioned alongside the right leg of the opponent

playing guard.

EXAMPLE 2: In reverse half-guard with his right leg trapped,

his left leg is positioned alongside the left leg of the athlete

playing guard.
