Many BJJ practitioners have made a career from forcing an under hook half guard and sweeping or taking the back. This is a common method of playing guard used by a lot of elite level grapplers such Lucas Leite, Bernardo Faria, Tom DeBlass and others…
If you get an under hook from bottom half guard, it can easily lead to the demise of the top player. The under hook can be one of the most powerful and game changing aspects of the half guard. Both from bottom and top, in half guard, we are almost always fighting for the under hook.
So you’re in top Half Guard and you want to pass – maybe straight into Mount? No problem.
There’s a really cool and not-often-taught grip that will force your opponents to open their legs… Allowing you the pass.
Viktor Doria demonstrates this secret grip on the video below:
