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…
Here in his new instructional Everyday Porrada Spider Guard by BJJ Fanatics, 5x world champion Romulo Barral demonstrates his favorite Over Under Defense.
His escape is simple but effective. Romulo makes space by extending his upper body which allows him to push his opponent’s head to the outside. This is the most important detail for the success of this technique.
Once the head is to the side, he proceeds to sit up and traps the opponent on the side. Romulo is in a strong position and can attack with a large range of options (submissions, backtakes and sweeps).
For this technique, timing is key.
