29/07/2019 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2019 | Brad Wolfson, step on thigh passing

Class #1171
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Brad Wolfson, Heidelberg, Germany, 29/07/2019

Step forward by one leg, then other foot on thigh. This looked like it could potentially be mean, but depends how much weight you put through. From there, you can drive hips forwards and drop into mount. Note that this is generally versus sitting guard, when they're countering a thrust into the back of their legs, Christian 'head over butt' style. İf you get caught on their leg because they've raised it, sprawl into a legweave.

That means, you cut your leg underneath and land heavy with your hips. Try to get your knee into their hip, with a leg booking theirs in order to drag it back and clear space. Switch hips to maintain pressure, also looking to cross face etc. An underhook on the other side is probably too high to start with, just hold their hip initially.

You can then crawl up into mount, moving your knees through. Another option, generally when their leg is a bit lower, would be to backstep. There is some scope as to where exactly you place your thigh stepping knee for this, but I was finding their same side hip was roughly my base point. You can also put your same side hand on the mat for base, then do a big back step to land into side control.

İ was less confident about stepping over into knee on belly, another option when their trailing leg isn't catching you too high. İt is sort of a knee cut motion..One to play with, though.
