At some point, we’ve all been there — we work so hard to get past someone’s guard, then just as we think we’re about to secure them in side control, bam — they throw in a knee, blocking the pass and often reguarding entirely.
Rather than losing all the hard work it took to get to this point, you can prevent this hiccup from ever occurring with surprisingly minimal effort. In his latest video, Nick Albin (a.k.a. “Chewy”) of Chewjitsu demonstrates a fundamental adjustment you can use to make sure you actually get the guard pass instead of having to start from scratch again. Take a look and try it out the next time you train!
