Sweep from Attempted Guard Pass

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Courtesy Rebecca Motte and thetechniques.net

Instructor: Luis "Sucuri" Togno and David Sisk

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.

Sucuri (in the blue gi) has David Sisk (in the white gi) in his guard. Sucuri has establiished the basic grip - his right hand grabbing inside David's right gi collar, and his left hand grabbing the right sleeve.

David tries to pass Sucuri's guard, by stacking him. David has reached underneath Sucuri's right leg taking the leg up over his shoulder and has grabbed Sucuri's opposite gi collar for control.

By pressing his hips in and stacking, David is passing to Sucuri's right side.

As David starts to come around to the right side, Sucuri releases his grip on David's gi and presses both of his hands against David's left side. At the same time he does this, Sucuri places his left foot on top of David's right foot.

Sucuri brings his right leg over to hook his foot inside David's right knee.

Once the hook is set, Sucuri sits up and reaches over David's back with his right arm and grabs the belt or David's side.

Sucuri now drops his right shoulder back down to the floor and kicks up with his right leg to take David off balance and start the sweep. Sucuri's left foot is posted on the floor.

Sucuri bridges his hips up forcefully - bridging over his right shoulder.........

............. and takes his left leg over the top to go to a cross body position on David's right side.
