This week's Guard Passing techniques are part of Week 15 of the GB2 module with Prof. Rodrigo Fajardo
Have you checked out the GB Online Instagram account?
This week's Guard Passing drill is going to help us develop one of the key aspects of passing the guard: the ability to connect our passing techniques as the opponent reacts and defends our original attempt. Seldom does our first attempt work perfectly.
To start the video, Prof. Rodrigo is looking to pass the opponent's open guard using a variation of the Leg Drag guard pass. The opponent reacts by bringing their free leg over to block Prof. Rodrigo's path.
This technique is all about anticipation and flowing around the opponent's reaction. If Prof. Rodrigo expects the second leg to come over, he is prepared to push it aside and continue passing the guard.
