    At first I thought it was a joke.

    Yeah I do BJJ and this would not be NEAR as effective as other lifts for guard passing IMO...

    I'd consider the movement more or less a variation of a turkish getup-ish kind of thing.
    I think it's a decent little lift, but I wouldn't drop the lifts you recommend to do it. I may add it to a workout, probably a gpp / conditioning day, and do it as fast as possible. Maybe even holding dbs overhead, or with a bar.

    I like the ideas of starting from the knees.

    I don't think I'd use kettle bells though, just to protect my manly image. Sandbags maybe.

    OR, just practice actual guard passing!

    A revolutionary concept, I know.

    If all we did was technique practice to get better at technique most of us wouldn't be here. The OP said he thought the exercise would help an athlete improve their standard guard passing. I don't see anything wrong with that other than as already pointed out the resistance is limited to what you clean with the KB. A nice heavy sandbag might be a good alternative.

    Agreed. I may try this soon while kind of zercher hugging (?) a heavy bag.
    I'm always looking for strength stuff that focuses on the transition between the ground and stand up.

    Might as well do a lift that is going to focus more on overall strength (deadlifts) thus helping your guard pass, rather than isolating the lift to merely focus on guard passing. Its an interesting novelty lift but hardly necessary. This is the bicep curl of KB compound lifts

    Well that is pretty much the motion for standing up in guard.

    I think BB has a good idea with using the sandbag, although i wouldn't bearhug it, i would rather hold it like i had hold of someones lapels and i was standing up.

    Del,

    We have a powerlifting forum sitting in the middle of an MMA Web site. If you dare to come in and ask a Q about how lifting relates to standup, rolling, takedowns, etc. (you know, the ostensible purposes of the Web site) you will be flamed mercilessly. None of us understand it; we've just come to accept it.

    Best,

    JLS

    You're racist.

    We're not all power lifters. In fact, I think less than 10 are.

    Hold on. I'm going to start a new thread about this, because this is something I've been wondering about for awhile.

    I'll link.
