    Diffuculty with sweeps from the guard

    I recently started training in BJJ and I have been having trouble sweeping people from my guard. My teacher has showed me multiple sweeps on just as many occasions and I drill them yet I continue to have diffuculty with them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I've been having trouble with guard sweeps and one tip someone gave me was I need to surprise them with it. If I'm slow and take too long to do it they know what's coming and can drop their weight/post before I can pull it off.

    So yeah, more mat time should do it.

    Hips out, break there posture, bring there weight on top of you. That should apply for most sweeps you've learnt :)

    sweeping from guard is similiar to throwing some from standing. Its all about taking their balance.

    Correct technique, posture, and timing are all the keys. But each sweep has it's own dynamics. Kimura-to-Sweep flow, for instance, is different than scissor sweep is different than armdrag. So work each one for technique, then speed/timing. Have the instructor go over the technique and show you what technical points you may be missing, then steadily up the ante with more resistance and speed until you can pull it off in free rolls.
