2 Points For The Sweep!

Many jiu-jitsu matches are decided by the 2 points for a sweep. One of the lesser appreciated values of the sweep is that while it might be very difficult to get a takedown on an opponent who has solid wrestling, a well timed sweep can get you to a dominant position.

1) Flower Sweep from closed guard
sweep is a great technique to learn early on your training as it teaches fundamental hip movement and skill of unbalancing the opponent.

2) De la Riva Guard

3) Deep Half guard sweep
smaller jiu-jitsu players love this position as they feel they can effectively undermine the base of a heavier opponent.

4) Advanced b Half Guard reversal
this sweep work? Yes it does! One of my black belt friends did it twice on me the last time we rolled!

5) Advanced – X Guard Sweep
