The Dummy Sweep in BJJ is a great sweeping option that also goes great as a setup to Leg Lock positions. I believe the 1st time I saw this technique was from a video of Marcelo Garcia. After seeing the sweep I’ve used it as a part of my Open Guard ever since.
The reason they call it the Dummy Sweep because you’ll feel like such a dummy if someone hits you with the sweep.
Whether you’re a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu White Belt or Black Belt. If you don’t use this technique, or haven’t used it much, I think it can be really helpful.
Most recently one of my White Belts in class, Darien, has been using the Dummy Sweep a bunch. And I can say that I use the Dummy Sweep a lot as a standalone sweep or to setup other Open Guards positions.
So thanks for watching! I hope this technique is useful to you and your Brazilian Jiujitsu training.
