If you’re a Half Guard focused BJJ player or ever get into the Dogfight position then you know how troublesome a well placed overhook can be.
In this video we’re going to get into this position and look at a couple of options.
Today’s BJJ video request from Gui who is playing Half Guard in his gym but is getting mauled by the overhook / whizzer when he attempts to come up for the sweep.
In the video I give 2 different options that can be used to counter the Overhook.
The 1st is simple limp arm / lazy arm. I probably use this technique the most. It’s just such a strong attack to throw into the mix. And I’ve used it over and over again.
Both in BJJ training in the gym and competitions.
The 2nd option is a roll under sweep using the “regrip.”
If you’ve watch any of my Half Guard technique videos you’ll see me showing the re grip sweep over and over again.
And it’s a great counter to Wrestlers and those types who try to use overhooks to counter sweeps and movements.
This is because they are literally giving you the grip you need to make the sweep effective.
So if you’re struggling from the Dogfight position or getting smashed in this position with the overhook. I hope the techniques are helpful.
