If you’ve been following the pro BJJ scene, you may have noticed the Miyao brothers having incredible success with a certain type of pass: The bodylock pass which is also known as the double over pass.
Their instructor at Unity BJJ, Murilo Santana also uses that pass.
This type of pass is slow and meticulous and it involves applying huge amounts of pressure on the opponent’s hips. It is also a very safe guard pass, safer then for example the over under pass (which has many counters), and it’s the perfect pass to use against a dangerous leglocker as your legs are kept so far away.
Passing the guard can be a daunting task, here 2018 double gold ibjjf world champion Gordon “King” Ryan shows how to perform a body lock pass off of your opponent’s underhook.
This is part of his soon to released guard passing instructional on BJJ Fanatics.
If you like smash guard passes, here is 5x BJJ world champion Bernardo Faria‘s new series, No Gi Pressure Passing. Building on the incredible success of his Pressure Passing instructionals in the Gi, this system will bring that same pressure to your No Gi game! Get it here!
