    This was a common problem I heard about when I polled my readership for questions in preparation for the interview I did with 5 x BJJ World Champion Bernardo Faria. Instead of talking about it we decided to make a video about it instead.

    If you want the full interview it's here in video, audio and transcript form: http://www.grapplearts.com/training-competition-strategies-bernardo-faria/

    I'm so glad you posted this. One of my main frenemies in the brown belt division locally uses this defense to the pass really effectively and I hadn't found a good way to deal with it. Will try for sure.

    Hope it helps! If it works for Bernardo on his way to 5 world titles it'll probably work for you too!

    Nice adjustment, can this work no-gi, if you grab their hip?

    He showed this when I asked at a seminar last spring, among many other great details. If you get the chance to hit up one of his seminars, I highly recommend. Such a friendly person too.

    Thank you for sharing this, Stephan. Over under is one of the few passes I actually have some success with.
