One arm behind-the-back guard pass-Troubleshooting
Hey guys. So I usually use 2 guard passes. The basic one where you go to proper posture inside guard, put on knee on the guy's butt, pull your other leg back then break the guard open, then slice your knee through. I think some people call that the tailbone break pass. My other option is this:
YouTube- Judo for MMA - "One Armed Man" Guard Pass
YouTube- THE SLING - ARM TRAP - TRAP THE ARM BEHIND THE BACK FROM INSIDE GUARD - kentuckymartialarts.com
Actually this is my favorite pass. I just have a question about the details of this pass. I've pulled this off many times but I'm not really sure what the exact procedure for the differet steps in this pass is. I actually use the Marcelo Garcia version (can't find the vid) where once the arm is behind his back, I change the arm that's holding his trapped arm then I crawl out of the guard.
1.) How do you trap your opponent's hand to the mat? I don't like to use brute force to drive it to the mat the push it to keep it there.
2.) Feeding the trapped hand behind your opponent's back: When you're bringing the trapped arm to the other side, should you be moving or are you using your arms to feed it. Example, I have my opponent's right arm trapped and I'm feeding it from my right hand to my left hand, behind his back. Should I be moving to the right or should I just be stacking then using my arms to bring the hand over. Everyone teaches this step differently.
3.) Changing grips: When the arm is finally trapped behind his back to the other side, should I be still stacking him when I change the hand that's holding his trapped arm or should I be kneeling or whatever?
Thanks guys! Anyone else use this pass?
