Today, we've got sponsored competitor, Matt Kwan, showing us one of his favourite BJJ techniques. Matt is showing us a Reverse Dela Riva Guard Sweep. The position starts off with Matt in Reverse Dela Spider Guard- yes, that's actually what it's called- and then he transitions underneath.
Today I'm going to talk about a dynamic solution to pass the Butterfly Guard in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If I'm in my training partner's butterfly guard, and I am going to do a double underhook cartwheel pass.
The BJJ Dialogue is a simple strategy to help beginners understand Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Think of it as a If/Then formula. Firstly, you need to recognize what position you are in. If it's a good position; then, maintain it and then attack. If it's a bad position; then, stay safe; and then, attempt to escape.
I've always tried to find the quickest and most immediate way to teach a deep and clear understanding of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and this is the formula I've come up with. Over the years this has become my number 1 epiphany. I hope that this will be one of your top 10 "ah ha!" moments.
