The over-under guard pass is one of the heaviest, highest percentage, and most miserable guard passes in the BJJ arsenal.
It is a real soul-stealer!
If you go up against someone with a good over-under pass and you don’t have good answers to it, then first you’re going to suffer, then you’ll get your guard passed, and then you’ll be crushed on the bottom of side control.
Fortunately today I’m joined by the extremely analytical black belt instructor Rory Van Vliet to give you three great answers to shutting down this guard pass!
Check them out in the video below…

While I have your attention…
The over-under is one of my favorite guard passes, and unfortunately Rory Van Vliet does a REALLY good job of showing exactly how to defend against it in his Guard Retention Formula instructional. So I might need to develop a new favorite guard pass 🙁
But this instructional is NOT just about defending the over-under pass…
In fact Rory shows you exactly how to defend against all the most powerful guard passes so that you’re always in a good position on the bottom.
Having faith in your ability to prevent your opponent from passing your guard allows you to attack with relative impunity using sweeps and submissions. This is because you know that even if that particular attack doesn’t work he’s still not going to pass your guard and smash you.
Having rock solid guard retention skills is one of the very best ways to boost your BJJ confidence.
And The Guard Retention Formula is the single best resource I’ve ever seen for a step-by-step program to give you an impassable guard!
