    I really like this sequence. It's not usually how I like to set up the x-guard but I really haven't worked much from that particular sweep. It seems like a nice transition. Sometimes I will attempt this sweep and when I don't get it I'll just recover half guard. This is a good option to try, thanks a lot.

    I've used that position with pushing up on both of opponent's armpits and rolling to the side with the captured leg and then swinging my non butterfly hook leg over the opponent's leg that isn't trapped (while keeping the butterfly hook leg still hooked in there) - this should get you into a position for an ankle lock.

    If you find yourself having a difficult time with the sweep initially, you can use the same setup and motion to recompose guard.

    So I was watching Gustavo Machados instructional on the halfguard earlier today, and it's got a lot of techniques from the same basic setup (the butterfly halfguard).
    Same setup used to sweep, return to guard and take the back.

    Truth be told, I nearly creamed my pants.

    His is the first DVD I recommend to anyone wanting to get into this type of half guard game. Stephan Kesting's butterfly and x-guard DVD and any of Marcelo's guard videos also work right into it this hooking game.

    How applicable would you say all of this type of guardwork is to MMA?

    My MMA guard revolves almost entirely around butterfy, half-guard, and to a lesser extent (from a skill perspective) x-guard.

    X-guard in MMA? And it doesn't get you pummeled?

    Not yet at least. I don't stay there, really, I just move to it when someone stands in my butterfly. I try to sweep as soon as available (but this is admittedly not my best position, I know the banana-split sweep and a roll to knee on belly which requires a grip on the far hand). I also use my prude guard with some success.

    But back to this BF/HG hybrid. I have also found the BF hook allows me to get my hips freed when my partner flattens me and tries to attack or pass.
