The Half Guard in BJJ is by far one of my favorite positions in Gi or No Gi. There’s so many options, grips and adjustments to mix it up with.
In this video I show a really STRONG grip to use in the Gi.
I put an emphasis on strong because it really locks the person down and creates crazy pressure from the bottom of Half Guard.
I’ve found from years of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu that once someone knows that I’m a Half Guard player.
They tend to try and get away from me.
This Back Strap grip doesn’t allow them to do that.
I’ve used this grip in rolling and competitions with plenty of success.
The gi loops around their back and puts an immense amount of pressure which completely locks the person up. If they try to push back or get away.
It’s usually not an option.
In the video I show one simple option that allows you to get to Back Mount and create a strong angle.
But there are so many sweeps and options you can add into your Brazilian Jiujitsu game with the grip.
So if you’re a BJJ Half Guard player and you’re looking for another option to throw in to your game.
Try the Back Strap grip.
Hope the technique helps!
