Sweeps From Guard: MMA Techniques & Training : Basic Scissor Sweep in MMA


Alright in this sweep I’m going to be doing
my Scissor sweep. I have Leon in my guard here, he’s in my guard. I’m actually going
to come up and bump him with my chest a little bit. I say bump alright. A lot of times the
gut wants to come back at you but as I come right back; as I come back I’m sliding the
knee across. So now his weight’s actually on my knee, and then I’m kicking right here
as I kick forward; boom, alright. This is called the Scissor sweep. I’ll do it one more
time for you. A lot of times I like, I love to push back; alright. But as soon as I push
back, alright. Just snout it and now I got to come back and put that knee across, and
put his weight on my knee and excess threw; alright. The Scissor sweep is pretty common
in the sport of grappling and uncommon in MMA.

  1. that is a horrible execution for a scissor sweep. one you can go for either a kimura or a guilitine ( sorry bad spelling) and you can do a hip over sweep…grab the posted out elbow and push with the leg that is up an it acheives the same as this crappy scissor without giving him a chance to pass guard
