The Machado Method

The Breakdown:

Learn how to flip your opponent using a butterfly hook under the guidance of Master Carlos Machado. There are several mistakes you’ll need to avoid as to not lose your guard while applying the butterfly sweep. He goes on to explain that if you can’t achieve the flip, simply start from square one by bringing them back to the starting position. “Every time I fail to get them into position, I just reset.” Quickly resetting to perform the flip from the opposite side can confuse your opponent and land your sweep.
