Thanks, Walker. This is a cool pass and it is always nice to learn things that work both Gi and NoGi.
This is a lower body pass, involving controlling your opponents legs, tripod-ing, freeing your trapped leg, and ending in side control.
Start From Half-Guard Top, your right leg is trapped in Half-Guard :
1 – Dive your head down, end posting on it with your left ear on your opponents left hip, and putting heavy pressure on your opponents solar plexus. (be heavy to prevent choke attempts)
2 – lock your wrists around your opponents legs. Try to be between their hips and knees, but closer to their knees.
3 – squeeze your arms together to weaken their leg clamp on your trapped leg.
4 – kick your trapped leg back and move to side control.
5 – Back-turn, scoot your back up their body and prepare to mount
Option starting from closed guard:
A – grab opponents armpits. lunge knees forward, like you’re doing squats. Repeat this until their guard opens.
B – Push their right knee down with your left hand, while you pin their left hip with heavy pressure from your right hand.
C – pass into half guard, go to 1 above and start.

When you are mounted, your opponent is vulnerable to being swept. Your hips are very powerful and when you bridge and immobilize one side of your opponent body, it’s not to difficult to sweep them in that direction.
You are mounted. Your opponent is setting up for some type of collar choke. They have one grip across your lapel.
1. Grab the back of their elbow on their gripping arm. And pull it out away from your neck. (They are gripping your left collar, reaching across your body with their left hand. Grab inside their left elbow with your left hand and pull it out away from you.)
2.Grab the cloth of their left shoulder with your right hand.
3.Trap their left foot against your hip by posting your right heel on the other side of their foot, sandwiching it between your right foot and your hip.
4. Bridge up into them on your right shoulder as you turn your head and look over your right shoulder to the place you are trying to throw them.
5. Roll into the bridge and land on top, in their guard.
(more simple, less grabbing) You are mounted. Your opponent is on top of you.
IF they have an under hook on one side, THEN
1. Clamp down on that arm and wing lock it.
2.Trap their foot against your hip by posting your heel on that side, sandwiching their foot between your foot and your hip.
3. Bridge up into them on that side as you turn your head and look over your shoulder to the place you are trying to throw them.
IF they DON’T have an under hook, THEN
1. Underhook their closest arm and try to flatten it onto your chest.
Go to step 2 and 3 above.
* it is better for you to have the underhook. If they have the under hook, you are vulnerable to the head arm choke if they are Zoran strong.
This is a good pass, which opens the guard, passes in a similar style to a double under hooks, and establishes you in side control.
(Start No Gi in your opponents closed guard)
1.- Maintain posture
Keep top of your head pointed up and arch back
2. – Get a throat choke grip with one hand
fingers & thumb around neck
3. – With the other hand grab their hip and press your elbow down firmly on the inside of their thigh on that side.
4. – Stand up
Let them feel their own weight.
5. – Press down on their hips as you squeeze your thighs together on the outside of their thighs. This should pop their guard open. (If it doesn’t try to reach behind you and pop their guard open with the hand you’re not choking with.)
6 – After their guard opens, grab both of their ankles and push them forward over their head. Drop your weight on them behind their hips, applying forward pressure, like you’re stacking them. (Their hips should be over their chest while you do this.)
7 – Drop one knee, either knee, over one of their arms, over the bicep, on the side that you’ve decided to pass to.
8 – Throw their legs to the opposite side and complete the pass as you establish side control.
They’re in turtle
You’re on top on thier left side
Your chest is against their back.
You’re on your toes.
1. Wrap your back arm around their stomach, like the top starting position in wrestling
2. grab the lower lapel of their gi, this will limit their mobility and prevent them from rolling away from you quickly.
3. with your front arm, push thier tricep forward, moving their arm up away from their chest (giving your some room to slide your knee in.)
IF they do nothing:
4. slide your front knee in the space you’re created as you flop onto that hip and pull with your gi grip rolling them into your lap.
5. kick your left foot through and get the left hook first. You must get this hook first in order to avoid being put into half guard.
6. hook the back of their other leg with your other leg and elevate their right leg.
7. This will make them uncomfortable. release the hook. They will try to lower their leg, and when they do, take the other hook.
8. Now with reach over their shoulder with your left arm and clasp your left wrist with your right hand.
You now have the back.
IF they roll away from you:
Hop over them and drop your right knee beneath them.
Take the left hook first. (Do this with your left leg which will be top leg.)
then roll them to the left and pick up from step 6 above.
