Bait the Guard Pass for this Half Guard Sweep
This is another BJJ Half Guard sweep that I use against the overhook. We are using the Regrip again against the overhook to protect against the Darce choke and to secure the arm for the sweep.
In a previous video I showed a Half Guard sweep against a person (possibly a Wrestler) doing an Overhook. You can see that sweep here: https://youtu.be/AFnUUPjSCNs
When I’m able to get this low Half Guard position with the outside hook in Brazilian Jiujitsu. The Overhook is one of the most commonly used counters.
In some cases I can get under the person with my hips and sweep them.
However, people with strong bases will position themselves in a way where it makes that sort of sweep from Half Guard very difficult.
This is when I might switch off to this particular sweep.
When I use the Sit Out to Double Leg from the Half Guard, as I show in this video. It’s a counter move, or you might consider it a bait move. Meaning I’m countering something my opponent is doing.
These moves can be tricky at first and might require a little trial and error.
But when you use a good counter move in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu they are incredibly effective. They often make your opponent move right into the place you want them. Just think to your own training when someone baited you into something.
I like this move as it blends my Wrestling with my Brazilian Jiujitsu game. And I think it’s effective because it causes you to change gears. You’re going from Guard player on their back to coming up to a Double Leg style takedown.
I hope this technique is useful for you with your Half Guard in BJJ.
