In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, there are several popular ways to pass the guard, and the effectiveness of each can vary depending on the situation, the style of the practitioner, and the specific guard being faced. Here are five commonly used guard passing techniques:
Knee Slide Pass (Passagem de Joelho): The knee slide pass involves controlling the opponent’s legs and sliding one knee through their guard while maintaining upper body control. This is a fundamental guard pass and widely used.
Torreando Pass (Passagem de Torreando): The Torreando pass involves moving quickly to one side of the opponent’s legs, pushing them down, and then passing to the other side. It emphasizes speed and agility.
X-Pass (Passagem em X): The X-Pass involves creating an “X” shape with your arms to control the opponent’s legs, then passing by circling around them. It’s particularly effective against open guards.
Leg Drag Pass (Passagem de Perna): The Leg Drag pass focuses on controlling one of the opponent’s legs, forcing it across your body, and then passing to side control. It’s an effective pass against certain guards.
over under pass
Double Under Pass (Passagem Dupla): In the Double Under pass, the goal is to secure both of the opponent’s legs and stack them on top of their own body, making it difficult for them to retain guard.
Please note that the effectiveness of these passes can vary depending on factors like the specific guard you’re facing, the skill level of your opponent, and your own proficiency in executing the technique. It’s recommended to learn and practice a variety of guard passing techniques to be well-rounded in your jiu-jitsu game.
