    In this video I show how to make space for the arm to come across the body and make a clear pathway to the back.

    Awesome. My struggle is the opponent latching on to my trailing arm or leg, preventing me from getting all the way around the corner. I noticed you controlled the wrist you dragged to prevent that- how do you deal if he grabs your drag arm with the other hand?

    Thanks

    Great video Gerbil. Butterfly guard is my primary sweeping position and your details on the armdrag to back attack will make this position much more dynamic offensively.
