Half Guard Sweep And Back Take
Half guard is by far one of my favorite positions. Recently we were going over a series from Half Guard. This video is a little different than the usual technique videos. This one was recorded during my classes while I was teaching my students.
In the video I show:
- An entry into the particular half guard we were using from a basic knee shield position
- A counter to a person who is using the over hook to keep you pinned down
- If the person tries to maintain space, a reverse kimura position (I showed this move in this video previously)
I’ve used this type of half guard effectively since I was a purple belt. I’ve used it in competition, in training and I even used it in MMA before.
Hope the techniques help, if you have any questions, leave a comment or shoot me an email.
