Training report: Guard pass fundamentals and Single Leg X guard pass for advanced
This week, we covered guard pass.
For the beginners, we taught the principles of breaking the closed guard (standing and on the knees), knees slices.
For the advanced students, on Tuesday we covered the long step pass against the de la riva guard. This specific guard pass is excellent against people that grip the pants with the de la riva hook.
On Thursday, Stu covered guard passes against the single leg X guard.
He also created a play list with 6 videos for your perusal.
Single X guard is a difficult hard guard to pass and therefore is very popular at the moment, especially as it easily lead into the straight ankle lock and the notorious Ashi garame position
