The over-under guard pass is one of the classic pressure passes in BJJ.
In it you absolutely kill your opponent’s hips by coming over one of his legs and under his other leg with your arms.
Then you spike your shoulder into your opponent’s belly which pins his lower body the floor and puts a tremendous amount of weight onto him and makes it hard for him to breathe.
This pass has changed over the years though.
