March 2013 Technique of the Month Video: Open Guard Sweep Combination

We are excited to share two ways to sweep your opponent from the open guard!
The first sweep is done from double sleeve control, with a shin inside the bicep and the other shin across the stomach. Load them up, and dump them 90 degrees for a knee on belly finish!
The second sweep is a dynamic movement, available if your opponent leans back to base against the first reversal, and puts you in a solid side control!
Drill these a lot, you will be surprising your training partners and opponents in no time!
These positions are must-haves for beginners and advanced Jiu-Jitsu players alike!
