Closed Guard - Flower Sweep Triangle

With this particular series we enhance our goal in developing an aggressive guard that keeps your opponent on their heels. This prevents your opponent from establishing grips and setting up to pass. As with most Bottom Closed Guard setups you must first work to break your opponents posture. Once the posture is broken, begin working to create an angle by turning onto your side. This new angle will allow you to setup for the following possible actions, and will force your opponent to react as they want to maintain good posture. When your opponent's posture is broken down, begin addressing your opponent's other (outside) arm, which is your target arm. If your opponent gives up the overhook, keep it and begin freeing your opposite leg (controlling your opponents arm), securing the legs over your opponents shoulders and continuing for the triangle finish.
