    A guard GI ADVANCED BASICS concept for EVERYONE!

    This video shows a guard concept that is what I consider "advanced basics". It is simple enough for everyone to practice, and effective enough for everyone at all levels to hit during their live rolling and competitions. The main premise is using hip control, pressure, and timing to off balance your opponent from the guard and set up attacks.



    Thank you once again for watching,

    Jason Scully

      Nice an simple setup for the xande style sweep and triangle. I liked that you focused on the foot on the opponents hip and keeping your hip up to eliminate space.

      I'm curious as to during the sweep what you're doing with your left leg?

        This is definitely something that I will work on this next week. I've been trying to work on basic positions and attacks like this because I get too easily enamored by flashy stuff.

          When you ask about my left leg, in what situation are you talking about?

            I also wondered about the left leg. You don't seem to use it as a pendulum, the way I would expect it to be done.

              This is because I am relying on my opponent's reaction for this one because I am off balancing them the other direction...with the "original" pendulum sweep, there isn't much initial off balancing and that is where the swinging of the leg comes in.

              Even the littlest bit of reaction from your opponent after you off balance them will help your sweep attempt tremendously

                During the sweep. Do you stomp Xande sweep style, use it to sweep your opponents leg out from under them, etc? Often times many people counter by posturing and posting on that leg.


                Also Merry Christmas, deck the halls with lots of fail. Fa la la, la la la la.

                  No I do not remove my foot from the hip as I do not see it as necessary for when I am attacking for the sweep.

                    I hit this sweep tonight - it was awesome to have something that the guys in class aren't familiar with. Thanks for the vid!
                    Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

                        I will try this when rolling tonight at class. Seems simple enough for me to pull off. Thank you for the video :)

                          If you fully commit and attack the pendulum going back to the opposite side the foot on the hip may not be an issue.

                          I use this sweep as an option when I start to set-up a Pe De Pano Sweep which gets countered and I then attack the opposite direction with this sweep. Do to the fact that I am taking my foot off the hip to try and roll around to Pe De Pano I partially loose control of my opponents base when coming back to the Pendulum. In order to counter this gap I drop my left leg on my opponent's right knee to counter the leg post and effect the sweep.

                          The roll up with the hips high also puts you in a great position to hit a tight modified spider guard focusing on the arm as your foot is already on the hip and the arm post opens up the bicep to hit the modified spider from kneeling.

                          I'll see if I can get pics of vid to show what I am referring to. However, this set-up is AWESOME and can branch in to a large number of options when countered.

                          Thanks jasculs
