    This section of the module is going to help me out tremendously. This is exactly what happens to me with the leg getting stuck. Then the guy pushes on my knee as I try in desperation to stop the pass with my arm(s). It usually doesn’t end well for me. Thanks Henry!

    Please could you show a reliable way of moving from closed guard to the hook sweep position. Many thanks for the superb insight as ever!!!

      Usually I keep my legs on the outside of the hips to prevent them from passing, if you create space you can swing your leg inside to create a hook but usually I ping pong them between my legs then set up the scissor sweep, if they step over my leg then i’ll have a hook

    I love the hook sweep, however my training partners are now on to me. They will often angle their hips crushing my hook in a tripod like stance and then pass guard. I have not completed the sweep module yet, but is there any material or could you share with us a good counter for this? Thanks in advance, and all of these are really great and helpful.

      Hey Andrew, depending on hown they are basing out you can change the angle of the sweep or sometimes kick out their base leg. If they are turning the hips to kill the hook, then you can use the reverse hook sweep,it’s a technique I plan on adding to the sweeps course soon

    Love the way these are connected together. I’m gonna have alot of fun tomorrow that’s for sure! 🥋 Once i had 4 basic Sweep’s down to a T, i added another 4 and there pretty much on point. Some of your’s will replace the basic’s and some are new to me and i’ll be working hard on implementing them. Thank’s Henry A 😊🤙🏻….

    Hi Henry,

    I am also interested in the reverse hook sweep. I am now going through the sweep modules and drilling the techniques, trying to put the different sweeps together to use in sparring.
