Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

Half Guard Pass - No Gi
1. In this situation, I am in Brian's Half Guard - to begin my Pass, I bring my right foot close to his butt. I also control him by putting my left arm under his neck and cup his bicep - this is important so that he does not roll up onto me during step #2.
2. Once my position is secure, I slide my left leg on his body as shown - almost lying side by side with him.
3. I use my right arm to open his legs and 'cradle' him. If I spread my right leg back and tighten my arms, it will cause pain.
4. I switch my base to release my right leg. Now I am out.
