How To Sweep A Larger Opponent
I’ve recently featured a fair bit of content from various guest authors. And that’s a good thing, because different perspectives are critical to your improvement; after all, no single person can show you everything you need to know about grappling.
Today’s contributor is Jennifer Weintz, a skilled brown belt who has won gold at the Pan Ams twice and also medalled at the Mundials (the BJJ world championships).
In this video she shares her two favorite sweeps to use on bigger, stronger opponents. (I should mention that I’ve also used these sweeps successfully on smaller, weaker opponents, so they’re definitely multipurpose techniques that should be in your arsenal if you’re doing BJJ).
P.S. While we’re talking about fighting larger opponents check out the 5 DVD set I filmed with 3 x World Champion Emily Kwok. It’s full of techniques, drills, strategies, and tips to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent. I’m clearly biased but I think it’s really good!
