The half guard can be a powerful attacking position so long as you stay on your side and maintain your mobility.
However if your opponent gets his grips, flattens you out and drives all his weight onto you it really sucks. And then it’s only a matter of time till he passes your guard…
But even if you get flattened out, don’t give up hope. There is something that you can do that not only gets you out of trouble, but often puts you on top as well.
Here’s a video clip in which I teach the ‘Kamikaze’ half guard sweep for that exact situation. Plus I also show you a hidden detail that is often overlooked. And finally I introduce you to a related, very powerful sweep I learned from a top BJJ competitor.
