Closed Guard to Standing Pass

  • Hero is in Opp Closed Guard
  • Opp L Hand -> Hero L Lapel Gi
  1. Hero R Hand -> Opp L Gi Wrist
    • Opp L Hand is dangerous here and ideally it would be good to break the grip but either way it is important to defend it.
    • In the video below Kurt Osiander(who has excellent videos) show this part Opposite and he breaks the grip. But everything else is much the same.
  2. Hero L Hand/Forearm -> Opp R Gi Belt/Inner Thigh
  3. Hero steps R Foot/Leg up and then L Foot/Leg Up
    • Important to stand up first on the side that the Opp Arm is trapped
    • Hero is now standing with good posture
  4. Hero L Elbow/Arm -> Opp R inner thigh and drives down -> ground (breaking closed guard)
    • As this happens Hero keeps R Foot on ground knee bent at 90 degrees
    • Opp L Leg is on top of Hero R Thigh
    • Hero L Knee falls -> ground
  5. Hero L Knee -> Opp R inner thigh and stays tight -> Opp R Outer Hip
    • Hero needs to keep Opp R Leg trapped tight -> ground
  6. Hero L Arm UH Opp L Leg; bring Opp L Leg -> Hero R Shoulder/Neck
  7. Hero L Hand -> Opp R Gi Collar/Back of neck
    • Hero needs to step R Leg up tight to Opp L Side
    • This is a very powerful position
  8. Hero reverse scissors R Leg backwards -> L
  9. Hero L Leg -> L which releases Opp R inner thigh
  10. Hero switches hips back -> R; (AST – At same time) Hero steps R Leg -> back of Opp R thigh in order to push Opp onto L Hip
    • Hero comes to R Cradle Position around Opp R Hip

The following video is by Kurt Osiander who is one of my favorite BJJ Instructors on Youtube. His videos are straight forward and no Bullshit. As was stated above he breaks the initial grip which is ideal.
