    A dynamic open guard pass for when your opponent is playing open guard with his feet on the ground behind his head. I have a couple of passes that I use for this position but after learning this pass recently in Brazil I have been having a lot of success.

    At the beginning of this video I say that I have not used it yet, but I taped this move over a month ago and have been playing with it since. I have successfully hit this move on more than one occasion and although it does not always look this picture perfect it usually allows me to come up on their back. I have not scrambled into a bad position yet off of this transition.

    A couple of key notes. 1. It is very important to get onto your own shoulders. Make sure to tuck your head. After having repped this out I realize how important it is to be on your shoulders and I would have emphasized it more in the video had I waited to film it. Secondly it is important to set that hook as quickly as possible, once that hook is in you can use it to push them away even if you dont get the picture perfect finish, it will save you from getting in trouble.

    In case you didnt know they are not very popular on naming moves here in Brazil. When this was taught to me in class by another student he did not have a name for it. I just refer to it as the "Rock Star" pass because when I hit the move I feel like a rock star.

    That's an awesome pass, definitely got to try it. I don't see how it could be used in nogi through.
