The Single Leg X-Guard is a very popular and effective guard for BJJ practitioners who attempt to attack their opponents with both submissions and sweeps.
When you are playing the Single Leg X-Guard, you are positioned underneath your opponent, and you have countless options to disrupt their base for a sweeping opportunity, a leg attack or even a triangle choke.
There are many variations of the Single Leg X-Guard. The most common one is when you trap the opponent’s leg with an overhook.
