Wednesday Night Team Training - CT BJJ


Today during Team Training we continued working Butterfly Guard sweeps, starting with a review of the butterfly Guard Sweep we have been working on for the last week. This gave everybody and opportunity to increase their understanding of the mechanics of the sweep and sharpening up some the skills we already knew from previous classes. Once everybody had reviewed the sweep we went into talking about correcting angles as our training partners were circling in an attempt to pass. We then discussed 3 possible options based on our training partners reaction to our reaction, all moving us to the top position. The butterfly guard is primarily a sweeping guard, and is a great option for attacking when your training partner is attempting to pass from the knees.
