Passing half guard in BJJ
Passing the half guard in BJJ can sometimes be a chore. But the secret is pressure! Pressure passing…. the power of half guard. There are many ways to create pressure while passing your opponents guard, but in my opinion half guard passing is the best for pressure for the simple reason that it offers direct control of the opponents head, which creates the strongest forms of pressure. you control the head, you control the body. The ability to exert pressure over time is perhaps the single biggest determinant of success or failure at championship level. Working your way to half guard and getting control of the head gives you what I consider the best pressure passing method in the game. It works equally well in all three areas of sport jiu-jitsu, (gi or no gi) and MMA. Here, our student Dan Czarnecki uses it brilliantly in his double gold medal performance at NJBJJF Tournament.
