Here’s a continuation from the last video I posted about dealing with being on the bottom in Half Guard / Scissor Guard.
My objective here is to simply redirect the person using their own weight, and not to lift or flip them.
Option 1: I attempt a simple variation of the scissor sweep in the beginning to test their base. If they go over, then I simply slide up to the top position. Option 2: If they counter Option 1 by putting their weight into me, I redirect their weight by keeping my knee high and using my grips to redirect their momentum. My movement is basically a backward roll and the leg that I have hooked on my opponent helps pull me up and through to the top position.
Try it out and let me know what you think! -Professor Angelo
