We he gets his hook in he controls his training partner by putting his arm around his back and grabbing the belt. He keeps his head below his opponent’s chin. This is because if your head is above your training partner he will be able to easily push you over. Now he establishes pants control on the other side of his training partner. Bruno pulls his opponent slightly towards him. The natural reaction of your training partner will be to sit back. This is the momentum you use to successfully sweep your opponent.
