Eddie “Wolverine” Cummings, now of Unity, knows your training partner is probably resisting the discomfort of your soon-to-be-deadly half butterfly guard. They sprawl, or sit heavy, and you don’t get to drill the essentials of the technique they way you’d like to.
Here, Wolverine and partner Ottavia Bourdain go over ways to keep your partner from sprawling and attack their toes to open up heel hooks. Cummings shouts out to both Keenan Cornelius and Craig Jones, explaining that the demoed entrances are a combination of techniques borrowed from the playbooks of the ADCC favorites.
