Time to flip the script on our Lesson Plans this week! After focusing on the bottom position of Half Guard and some of its different variations the past few days, we now move to the top and focus on passing to Mount or Side Control. We’ll begin by addressing how to clear the Shin Shield and flatten our opponent. Once there, we have several different Tripod Passing options that we’ll discuss in detail.
On Wednesday, we address how to deal with a more mobile opponent on the bottom. If they are able to escape and begin to threaten a guard recovery, we’ll simply switch our hips and explore the available Knee Slide Pass options. Timing and balance will be very important aspects of this class, so make sure you get those reps in!
This week wraps up with several of our students competing in Frisco at the Jiu-Jitsu World League American Open, and these are definitely some great lessons to take with us on Saturday! Good luck to all!
