The Double-Under Guard Pass

The Machado Method

The Breakdown:

Learn how to pass the guard using the 'double under' approach from low level or standing positions. Master Carlos Machado explores many avenues that allow you to 'melt the guard', while still applying the concept of Stance, Control, and Pressure. What if your training partner has you in a spider guard? What if he has your collar and sleeve? What if he’s trying to apply a triangle? All these scenarios can be dealt with by applying this simple concept.

Goal: Stance, pressure, control and double-unders
Base position: Guard, open guard
