Ball and Chain Sweep

This week, we drilled the theme of sweeping from the guard.  Most of our work was done from the closed guard, but we also took the opportunity to move through the Spider Guard from last week and then onto new material.  Our final sweep of the week was the Ball and Chain.  Below is the link to check out our recap on it.

Just as important as the sweep is the positional control as we move through positions.  Don’t phone in the early phases of this. The motions of moving from the scissor sweep to this are so important in the development of your game.
