How to classify guard passes into 5 motions

From a post of sherdog grappling Forum written Uchi Mata.


With some minor variations, I think you can reduce almost all passing motions down to these 5:
  • Knee slide
  • Leg weave
  • Leg redirection, e.g. torreando or leg drag
  • Long step/back step
  • Stack


Knee slide


Leg Drag


Long Step Pass


The Stack


Leg Weave
