Last Day at the Worlds!



Double underhook pass. This was a huge difference I finally noticed at the black belt level. Unlike other belts where passes are more varied, athletic, and speed oriented. At the black belt level almost every athlete threatens the pass with a double underhook pass. Why? It is the most conservative pass where you can legitimately pass but offer the least amount of ways to be finished or swept. There are specific moves designed to fight this pass but the statistic don't exist to warrant them being a legitimate threat. So whats the counter?

Double sleeve grip. Of course! Control both sleeves or control both sleeves whenever they stand up.

Things to think about.
