Sao Paulo Pass

Today was a very small class, as only like 6 people showed. This is probably due to Michigan vs Michigan State being on and the UFC being on later.

Clint taught us the "Sao Paulo Guard Pass". This is the one made popular by Tozi and Wilson Reis. Clint said Jorge uses this also.

You start with a deep underhook, making sure to apply pressure with your head under their chin. You then scissor your leg under your body, sitting out to the side. The key is to continue keeping your head down to avoid chokes/counters. You then push the opponents leg between yours, passing to half guard. You then finish like a normal half guard pass.
