Lost the Half Guard Under Hook Battle from Top? Use The Phantom Pass

Guest post by David Avellan, an ADCC bronze medalist. Avellan has defeated many of the world’s best grapplers, such as BJJ Black Belt World Champions Rafael Lovato Jr.Tarsis HumphriesAmaury BittetiAlexandre ‘Xande’ RibeiroRoberto ‘Cyborg’ Abreu, and Rener Gracie.

Avellan is credited for developping The Kimura Trap System , a powerful submission system that counters half guard, turtle guard, and take down players with brutal efficiency.

 

Winning the Under Hook battle from half guard is an important part of controlling the position.

As the bottom player, your sweep game opens up, submissions, and escapes are all possible with that under hook.

As the top player, it always allows you to easily flatten your opponent and passing becomes much easier.

BUT, it is not everything. In fact, sometimes I like it when they get the under hook, because I can use this sneaky pass we call the Fantasma Pass – the Ghost Pass in Spanish.

 

The Wolverine is finally here! Eddie Cummings and Digitsu came together to film an extremely candid and eye-opening seminar focusing on the mechanics of the Ashi Garami – Leg Entanglement System. The objective of this seminar is to provide the students an immediately usable understanding of both the submission side and the escaping side of the Ashi Garami. Eddie’s breakdowns are extremely detailed and methodical. If you are looking to get a deeper understanding of the Ashi Garami – Leg Entanglement System, this is the place for you
