The Half Butterfly is a fantastic guard, particularly well-suited for various Leg Lock entries – depending on your training partner’s reaction.
Most of us get caught up using our half guard to try to control the weight and pressure our opponents are able to inflict on us, while we are desperately trying not to let them pass our guards. Last year, Tom DeBlass released a game-changing half guard series known as Half Domination. In this series, Tom shared many of the submission possibilities that are available from this previously thought of “defensive only” position. He continues this approach with his brand new release The Half Butterfly Guard.
With the addition of the butterfly hook to his patented half guard game, DeBlass takes an even more aggressive and attacking approach in this series. Filled with kimuras, back takes, leg submission entries, as well as sweeps, this series will be a perfect compliment and aggressive extension to the Half Domination series.
Here is a situation and a way to set up a Kneebar from this position. Paul Ardila-Ibarra demonstrates on the video below:
