If you know me or have watched me roll. Then you know I LOVE Butterfly Guard. It’s one of my best positions.
Now I love Butterfly Guard for a lot of reasons.
I love that it’s great even if you can’t use a Full Guard super well. It’s great for sweeping. And it’s also a great place to transition to other forms of Guard in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
In this video I show how to use Butterfly Guard to transition into an X Guard or Single X Guard / Ashi Garami position.
In the video I touch on the basic idea that when we want to lift someone from a bottom position in Brazilian Jiujitsu. We need to get under their hips.
When you watch the technique shown in the video pay close attention to how I move under Chad.
Once in X Guard or Single X you can attack leg locks, sweeps or other submissions.
Give it a try!
