The over under pressure is one of the hardest guard passes to deal with. If your opponent knows what they are doing, it is a real nightmare…
Although the over under is a high percentage guard pass it does have weaknesses. One of the most common way of countering is the head push. When you redirect the opponent’s head, you can completely unravel the pass, and you put the passer in a different passing lane, which gives you the opportunity to escape your hips and recompose. The head push is probably the most common way to defend the pass, but it is itself easy to counter…
If your training partners often try to use the Over Under pass against your Butterfly Guard, then you should try this counter!
It’s a super effective one.
