The Greatest Passer In BJJ History Reveals His Complete System For Destroying The Best Guards In The World And Why He Hasn’t Lost A Match At Worlds in 6 Years!
Lucas starts this knee cut pass from the De La Riva guard. He gets a collar grip with his right hand, the same side of his opponent’s De La Riva. Notice that his arm is below Bernardo Faria’s knee as he maintains control over the far leg. Lucas relives pressure from the De La Riva by pulling his opponent into him and closing his elbow. From here he has the proper grips to pull the collar and the leg causing the hips of his training partner to go over as he ends up on his side. When Lucas’ opponent frames away he grabs his arm behind the elbow to control his other shoulder. Now he can lean forward and cut his knee, making sure it is pointed towards the floor, close to the rib. Lucas pivots on his other foot and from here when his opponent tries to escape he uses his grips to control the situation.
Keep this one in mind the next time you are practicing De La Riva guard passing, the knee is a powerful tool to pass with from this position. It could even be the deciding factor in winning a competitive match. What are you waiting for? Get out there and train your knee cut passing!
