Half Guard: sweeps and submissions

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.

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