Do you keep getting punished when someones in your guard. Maybe it’s time to go back to basics.
Here’s a nice simple, old school closed guard sweep for when your opponent stands up to break guard. It’s a great video by Kurt Osiander. (Foul Language warning)

The flower sweep from the closed guard is my favourite sweep because it works like crazy and when done correctly, it is extremely difficult to stop.
In this video, Matt Arroyo shows us how it’s done.

Here’s the sweep he used to sort out the problem. It’s quite unusual and involves a little head butt.
I can’t decide if it’s bad ettiquette or not but it looks very effective and Brandon and Stephen are both amazing BJJ players. What do you think?
