Pass Guard for Mount
Marcio shows how to pass someone’s guard and get the most dominant position in BJJ, full mount.
Sweep from Open Guard
Professor Marcio demonstrates how to get a sweep from his open guard by using his opponents gi and leverage against him.
Often times in MMA, we see the setup and finish of the arm triangle. This is one of the most common submissions in BJJ, apart from the rear naked choke and the guillotine.
The most basic technique, yet the most frustrating for someone trying to use their offense, is simply passing guard.
Transitioning to a choke from armbar is anything but basic. However, it is very common to see someone set this up and execute it.
