Passing & Striking from Half Guard Top | MMA Fighting

All right guys. Now I’m gonna talk about half
guard top position. Right. So. Chad escaped somehow, to half guard top which is, one leg
between his legs. And there are a lot of ways to lock up the half guard. First the basic
way. Right. OK. Now we’re gonna pass the half point. First I want to add some strikes. So.
What I am gonna do is I’m gonna compress my body forward like his, control here. Put my
elbow on his face. Boom. Boom. Now try and come up Chad. It’s very hard. This elbow here
makes it very difficult. OK. Now. I’m gonna pass. So here. Here, I’m gonna lock up, underneath
his head. Turn his head this way. I’m gonna turn his head this way. Walk. Get my hook. Come up. Drop my knee. Grab the
arm. Pass through. OK one more time. He has the lock on my leg. Elbow in his throat. Strike.
Strike. Strike. Strike. Starts moving. i give the under-hook. OK. I take my crawl space
and turn his head. I walk my feet over, get my hook. And slide my knee out. Pass this
way. Or, sometimes if he won’t let go of my foot. He won’t let go of my foot, that’s OK.
I slide my knee over. [Pause]. ‘K. Now. Last situation. He’s gonna do the lock-down, which
is a more, type of control on my leg. That makes it difficult. Look what I do with my
legs. Still strike. Boom. Boom. But if I wanna pass, what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna turn
his head. But before that I look this way. I look this way. And turn my leg. Turn my
leg this way. Kick up. Now. I turn to get my hook in. Watch again. Tight Chad. Tight.
Tight. Very Tight. I turn up. Get my foot hook in as I turn the other way. Pass. That’s
passing the half guard top.

  1. i dont get it why people call this gay porn :S
    Its fucking mma they are wrestling it has to look like this -.- i dare you to say that in front of him

  2. First of all, there are VERY FEW female wrestling/bjj/mma instructors.
    Personally i have never seen one in my entire life, including instructional videos online.
    That isn't to say there are None, it's just very hard to find out.

    Secondly, everything being taught here applies to both men and women. There would be no difference if there was a female teaching.

    The only thing different for women (and some men) is to understand that hair WILL get pulled while grappling, it's just inevitable.

  3. I always find that so funny when people say "Go say that to his face". Most guys that do martial arts won't bother beating up anybody for saying stupid shit. It's just not worth it.

    Chances are they'd probably laugh out loud and make fun of the guy for being an idiot.
