Getting to the X-Guard, MArcelo Garica

Marcelo Garcia goes over the hardest part of using the X-Guard:
Getting there in the first place.

Essentially, he goes from a position where his opponent is standing, with his butterfly hooks in, so that he can swim in for the X-Guard. Note that it's important for this method that the opponent isn't forcing the action forward, instead, Garcia waits for him to back up to get to the guard and sweep him.
