Some useful tips from teaching today's lesson on my other favourite closed guard sweep, along with the hip bump. For the sweep to function, their head needs to be on your chest. If it is off to the side, you won't be able to spin. The head then becomes a block to that sweep, but it also sets you up to take their back, an important combo for the swivel kick sweep. Be sure to mention the gift wrap option, as that's super strong, as well as hooking under their leg if they step up. The most common mistake is failing to swivel enough, which results in the power coming from the weeny abductor muscles, rather than the big beefy hamstring muscles.
