Half Guard: sweeps and submissions

Many BJJ fighters understand the defensive aspects of the half-guard, using it to block opponents’ passes and to restore the closed guard.

These are important things, but you shouldn’t stop there. You should also explore the offensive aspects of the half-guard, using strategy to turn the table and counter-attack.

Following this line of thinking, André Monteiro teaches several attacking techniques from the half-guard this week at the Renzo Gracie Online Academy.
