    I happened to stumble upon these vids while looking for some Mendes footage for the backtake thread Drew started. In light of all the sh*tty threads popping up recently I thought now would be a good time to discuss some technique.

    It looks as though you've got a couple options in which way you pass.

    TT Pass 1



    TT Pass 2



    Standing TT Pass



    TT Pass Variation

    This is something I have been working on. Just been doing it for a week, though.

    Very smooth, beautiful technique!! Thanks for sharing. I have a lot of trouble passing that shin across half guard or z guard or whatever its called, I will have to try and work these.

    It's only been a week. I have either finished that pass, a knee slice pass or failed at some point and had to restart/gotten swept. Most of the time, I have finished the pass. In one month, I will have a better idea.

    well, it is easy to pass because the guys never even had the sit up guard properly set up anyway.

    if you do not not control his far knee with your foot ( a la DRV), then it is 2 easy to pass unless you use your feet and put an extra hook like Mendes showed in one of his vid.
