Butterfly Guard to X-Guard Sweep

LEVEL: Intermediate

1.I have established a classic “butterfly guard” position, complete with the near side underhook. If my opponent will allow me to grab his left arm with my right hand, I will go to a classic “bread and butter” butterfuly guard sweep

2.However, my opponent is smart, and keep’s his left hand away. So I dive underneath my opponent

3.Establishing a standard X-guard position

4.My opponent attempts to post, so I snatch away his base with my free left hand, continuing to hook his leg with my right hand

5.I lift with my legs, sweeping my opponent, and achieving the top position

6.Note that I have a solid knee-on-stomach position, which sets up the armlock, when I’m ready to step over his head
