Butterfly Sweep & X Guard

Last week we learned about a butterfly sweep from standing. The sweep is used when both you and your opponent are standing and your opponent rushes or pushes you. As you are holding onto their lapel and under their elbow, you sit down on your back leg and hook them with your other leg, then continue to a butterfly sweep them. After sweeping them, you can end up in knee-on-belly.

The X Guard position is for when the sweep fails and the opponent is above you. You then can hook your opponent's leg in an X position- one leg hooked behind their leg, and the other leg/foot hooking their hip. Their other leg is next to your head which you have grabbed with your arm. From here you can stand and take them down.

Look for video.
