    Half/Butterfly Guard with Overhook Lesson

    Glory of glories, I've got the next 10 minutes of footage from Leo's edited and published online. These techniques are really solid and high percentage and I haven't seen these details taught anywhere else. I'm just lucky to have an instructor who's happy to show them to me and let me share them.

    As usual, I've been on and off working the graveyard shift :( Last time I went to train was on Halloween night. I hope work eases up on December so that I can go again.

    I'll never get anywhere without training consistently. I gotta say your material is great in that it covers so many finer details. Really great work man.

    Very nice :) I've always had some trouble getting my brain to accept half-guard stuff. I usually have more trouble than usual getting it down. (Mostly because I suck at learning stuff I don't like) But this is very nice. Not too complicated, very straightforward.

    Wish I had half your talent and teaching ability dude. Keep it up.

    Thats interesting stuff, I've never really seen anything that deals with half guard when someone has a cross face on you in the Gi, everything I look at seems to deal with the issue of stopping someone from getting the crossface in the first place but in Judo I seem to find myself falling with them already having a crossface in place the moment we hit the ground and then all I can do is try to hold them in place till we get stood up again, not really what I want to be doing because I find that it's easier to sweep someone from half guard in Judo sometimes as opposed to Guard simply because they feel the need to attack as fast as possible to pass the guard, thinking they are one small step away from a pin.

    Very nice Aeso. I'm going to try working on the two Half-Butterfly techs and transitions from half-guard. I have been focusing on using butterfly and butterfly variations recently in both my gi and no-gi games. I have never really considered the transition from half-guard. The last sweep, with a bunch of small variations, was shown to me by one of my instructors about 6 months ago and I use it frequently.

    Have you used the half-butterfly transition/sweep with success live? Smashing the inside leg and sprawling back to lower your hips would seem to make this transition and sweep difficult; the eventual pass to the non-butterfly side looks eminent and grabbing the knee seems like a small band-aid to the smash and pass but it would really be a scramble. Like I said I haven't tried it yet but I will and see what happens.

    It is always good to add something simple like this to your list of options.

    Those first two moves have been my main half guard game since I was a blue belt and they're actually how I best deal with smashing passes. If he's going to try to sprawl back and not let me underhook the leg, he'll probably give me room to pull my leg up to full butterfly instead.
