BJ Penn - Tripod Sweep (No-Gi)

BJ Penn shows us how to use the tripod sweep for No-Gi/MMA against an opponent trying to pass your guard.



-Opponent stands Up to break Guard

-Grab opponent's forward foot, and post your that side's foot on his hip

-At the same time, get a hook right above the backside of his knee with your other foot

-Try to grab the near side arm if possible (or other arm if that's available)

-Make sure he's off center by pushing on the hips, pulling at the knee, and raising the foot

-As soon as you can suddenly disrupt his base even further, you have the Sweep
