Body Lock passing: one of the most efficient styles of passing guard in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
But, truth be told, there are a lot of details to get right for it.
Body Lock passing can be a great addition to your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skillset. Especially if you haven’t experimented with this passing style before; when you learn the proper setups and techniques, you’ll find it ludicrous how many opportunities will open up.
Your training partner is on bottom and you’re on top – and they go to snatch onto your leg!

Well, you can go for a Body Lock Pass!
