Guard passes to beat the butterfly

Very versatile and effective, the butterfly guard has contributed to historic wins by many BJJ idols, like Fernando Tererê, Vitor Shaolin, Marcelo Garcia and Renzo Gracie. How can one escape the traps from such a powerful guard? Shawn Williams has some good answers to this question. In a series of videos made exclusively for RGOA, he examines the butterfly guard in different setups, and offers antidotes for each way the guard player can act. Additionally, in your lifestyle lesson, Sylvio Behring offers strategies to control an aggressor without throwing a single punch.
