A Jedi Mind Trick for Passing Butterfly Guard

Passing the Guard

This butterfly guard pass doesn’t require athleticism, speed or killer grips; instead this guard pass is all about the timing.

To have great timing you either need to have super-fast reflexes to react to your opponent, OR you have to ‘train’ your opponent to give you a certain energy so you can anticipate it and have your response already waiting for him.

The cool thing is that the exact same principle can be used to make many other attacks and guard passes work!

Here’s a video showing you exactly how to set up this kind of trap for your opponent:
