25/07/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Leuven 2017 | Butterfly Sweeps (Chris Haueter)

Class #853
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Sportoase Leuven), Chris Haueter, Leuven, Belgium, 25/07/2017

In 2016, this session wasn't so much a class as an extended lecture. I was anticipating it would be similar in 2017, ready to leave before the end like last year (especially as I had the excitement of D&D waiting at 7pm). I expected it to run over, but Haueter managed to keep on time this year.

After the lecture part finished, he spoke a bit about butterfly sweeps, using the classic belt grip set up. He then showed a less common variation, using the gi tail. From butterfly guard, pull out the gi on one side and feed it around the back to their other hand. Firmly grasp their trciep with your non gi gripping hand, high. You go for the sweep, but they base out to prevent going over.

Cross your feet over that basing leg, on the gi gripping side. Haueter called this 'micro-guard'. Pummel your head inside their arm on the non-=gi gripping side. You can then pop out under his armpit, switching the gi grip to your other handm, then drag them to take the back. Alternatively, you might complete the sweep as they attempt to pass.
