    Updated with part 2 of the technique



    Enjoy!

    Tonight's class we will focus on a sweep when the opponent overhooks the arm when you go for a deep underhook, preventing you from taking the back - will post tomorrow.

    Here is part 2 when an opponent counters with the overhook.

    use to be one of my favorite sweeps until people developed there D'arce. Now I just go straight to deep half and still have to avoid the D'arce, but it's lower percentage there.

    This has also been a big problem for a lot of us. However, the Darce is much harder to get with the gi. Also, if you can get a good, tight underhook like luis demonstrates, it becomes very hard to darce even in no gi.

    If the guy on top whizzers you, you just end up in a dog fight.
    But there are still some pretty good sweeps from there. So I wouldn't rely on just getting the back every time.

    The greatest problem I have with the underhook, at least in the gi, is people switching base and passing...

    I like how he pulls the foot out with his outside leg, very slick to help control base/movement and can be used to get more leverage on your own movement

    Great point! Tonight in class we will demonstrate 2 sweeps when the opponent gets the whizzer and I will post them tomorrow.

    Updated the original thread with part 2 when the opponent whizzers...it's a great and effective sweep and uses the momentum of your opponent trying to bring you back down.

    Great videos. Very similar treatment to Stephan Kesting's Dynamic Half Guard (which is a great disc). Can't be overemphasized that the part 2 (the roll under sweep) only works with them resisting/smashing. If you try to force it (and they're just sitting in good base) you end up trapped under them, which is no good.

    Also, it helps on #1 to do a "shot put" motion with your underhook and kick out with your outside leg to help shift yourself down/south before coming up to your knees.
