Nowadays you often see the Deep Half Guard at the highest levels of BJJ and submission grappling competition. But there are a lot of important details to the Deep Half Guard that you need to know before it becomes a powerful sweeping weapon.
Because I saw this position working again and again, several years ago I decided to add it to my repertoire. It’s a bit like regular half guard except you insert yourself right under your opponent’s center of gravity, which opens him up to some very powerful sweeps.
It wasn’t easy at first: it took a lot of experimentation and research, but eventually I had a series of ‘aha’ moments and it became one of my bread and butter sweeping positions!
Here’s a video clip of the specific revelation that made the biggest difference in my game, and converted the Deep Half Guard into an aggressive sweeping position for me
