Do you have trouble with the Cut Through pass when you play Half Guard in BJJ?
The Cut Through, Knee Slide, whatever name you like to call it, is one of the nastiest passes for a Half Guard player to run into.
In this video I add onto my Brazilian Jiujitsu Half Guard series which has focused mainly on the outside hook / old school position.
One of our buddies, Jesse, said that when he is in his Brazilian Jiu-jitsu gym rolling. He experiences a lot of trouble with the Cut Through pass.
So in this video I give 2 ways to deal with the cut through pass and how to reset the Half Guard position or go to Full Guard.
They’re simple options I use as a defense to the guard pass but they’ve helped me so much in rolling and BJJ competitions.
I hope they’re helpful to you!
