The leg lasso is one of my favorite open guard positions. With the lasso in, we can defend the guard and transition back to closed guard if we want to. We can also set up powerful and safe attacks.
It’s very frustrating for our opponent to pass the lasso guard, and frustrated people make mistakes. This sweep is one we can hit when our opponent makes a very common mistake: trying to pass without clearing the lasso first.
Thanks again to Roy Marsh for letting me show some techniques at his school and helping me film these videos. If you enjoyed them, you’ll definitely like the other videos on his YouTube channel by Roy himself and guys like Drew Culbreth, so check them out and subscribe if you like.
