Hook Sweep

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

My opponent is in my guard. I begin with both my feet on the inside of my his legs. It is essential that when doing this type of guard I sit up, otherwise I will not have the momentum or leverage to turn my opponent over.
With my left arm I wrap my opponent's right arm. My other hand is simply holding his belt.
I then rock backwards and lift my legs at the same time.
Next I will take out my left hook out from under my opponent's leg and instead place it over top of his leg.
I then kick my right leg up and my left leg down and roll to the left. This should all be done in one simultaneous and fluid motion.
Finally, I follow through to the mount position.
