    This has been gold for me. My Monday night instructor usually starts sparring with me in his half guard, if we don’t start there, I usually end up there eventually anyway. He has an amazing ability to keep my foot trapped and make it very difficult to pass using conventional methods. Last Monday I got my hip “on” his knee and shifted my weight, it collapsed his knee and opened the grip on my foot so that I was able to pass pretty easily. I think I pulled it off three times.

    I love this way of passing. I see vids of other folks that take 20 min just to explain how to pass a z-guard with 20,000 different details. Just use your weight and cut angles.
