Clark Gracie Shows Guard Replacement And Sweep




Clark Gracie and Adem Redzovic are back at it again! This is a great technique for white belts because it can oft times prove difficult bridging and creating space when you don’t have the underhook in half guard.


We practice this frequently at my academy. We call it the “Life Saver” to help us reference the move, because it can truly be just that when you are getting smashed and passed.



Here is the “Open Guard Translated” video that Clark and Adem are referencing. It is truly one of my favorite technique videos. I can assure you that if you haven’t seen it yet, that it will help your BJJ game.
