Constantly holding you back, impeding your forward progress.
We all know about that, it's just the nature of X-Guard.
Now just like the Berimbolo, the X-Gaurd was all the crazy just about 5 years ago. Unfortunately Moore's Law of BJJ is in full effect and gives us all "cool move ADHD."
As usual Jeremy Arel is at the forefront of providing simple yet very effective techniques and tutorials. This week he shows us some powerful sweeping options from the X-guard. This particular one he calls the Ball and Chain sweep. As with most guards styles and sweeps, the Ball and Chain works best when "Chained" with other techniques. So go suck down a few caffinated beverages of your liking, watch Jeremy do his thing, and try his methods out tonight.
