BJJ Techniques | A sweep from the butterfly guard

 

Coach Dave Bedard from Gracie Barra BJJ Montreal demonstrates a sweep from the butterfly guard.

The interesting thing about this set up is that all the grips are done even before the guard is open! That limits the chance of your opponent attacking you while you are setting up this jiu-jitsu technique.

Trapping the left arm is a great strategy that opens up several opportunities besides this one.

Good stuff!
