A Powerful Closed-Guard Sweep

A Powerful Closed-Guard Sweep

This video technique post is by 3rd-Degree Roger Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Nicolas Gregoriades.

After an era which saw the half, 50-50, de la Riva and several other guard variants supersede it in popularity, the closed-guard is now back in fashion.

My Favourite Guard

I've always preferred the closed guard, as I feel it gives me more control over my opponent than almost any other variant. I also feel that it's the 'safest' guard available to the bottom player - because the person on top must first open your guard before he can even consider passing and that in itself can be a major challenge for him.

A Powerful Sweep

In this video, I demonstrate one of my favourite jiu-jitsu techniques - an effective attacking combination from the Closed-Guard. I also discuss an important concept that has been helping me with all aspects of my game, including this particular technique.
