This technique is a high percentage method of opening the closed guard and then passing to side control. It works well against guys who don’t want to open the guard and try to keep you trapped. Pay close attention to Dennis’s grips and elbow positioning, which are the details that make this technique. It may seem ‘basic’, but as he explains he has seen Gordo use this very same move against many high level black belts with a lot of success.
