Elevator Sweep
(Guard, with gi)

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Courtesy bjjfighter.com

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.

I begin with my opponent in my open guard, both my feet are on his hips and both hands on his sleeves. My opponent has made the mistake of leaning too far forward in my guard.
I pull my opponent forward and lift him onto my legs.
I then kick both legs backwards.
I complete the sweep by rolling backwards into the mount position.
