This awesome video is by world champion Robson Moura to promote Jiu-Jitsutracker and is taken from one of his seminars. In the video, Robson goes back to basics. He teaches the butterfly sweep perfectly. When you’ve drilled this, you’ll be on your way to a great butterfly guard.

Here’s a video for a hook sweep from butterfly guard, using a single hook. If you can’t get the underhook with your arm, it gives you another option. It shows you how to go over his shoulder with your arm and sweep him with one butterfly hook. Another great option. This Start BJJ video is by World Champion Professor Rafael Lima.
