Over Under Pass

Guard passing is a fundamental skill of jiu jitsu that every person should learn and perfect. One of the best guard passing techniques is the over under pass. This technique is an effective pressure guard pass disabling your opponents hips and, if performed correctly, makes it difficult for them to move or escape. Last Thursday night, students were instructed on one way this pass can be performed. Below are the steps for one version of the over under pass and they are:

  1. Get into a kneeling position with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Place your right arm over your opponent's right leg and your left arm underneath their left leg.
  3. Keep your elbows close to your body and your weight on your knees.
  4. Use your right arm/shoulder to push down on your opponent's hips and your left arm to lift their leg up.
  5. As you push and lift, step forward with your right foot and slide your left foot under your opponent's right leg.
  6. Once your left foot is under your opponent's right leg, you can either step over their leg and get to side control, or you can keep your left foot under their leg and use it to control their hips.

Remember, in order to improve your guard passing it is important to practice the move regularly, learn multiple guard passing techniques, be patient, and always get feedback from training partners and instructors while practicing and training.
